Women smokers and the deadly side effects.

Posted on May 4, 2009. Filed under: Health | Tags: , , , |

The act of holding a cigarette in your hand or mouth can gives you that elegant and suave look.

When it is a young, pretty and attractive woman doing that, she can even look more sexy and alluring.

The tobacco industry is targeting women with the image of a successful, slim and beautiful woman executive who smokes. Those who smoke would appear to be successful and having reach ‘there’ .

Looks may not kill you but smoking can .Latest research results has found that women are more vulnerable to the side effects of smoking than men.

They may have smoked less but they tend to be diagnosed earlier with cancer than the men .

Their bodies are more susceptible to adenocarcinoma – a common form of lung cancer and this is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the United States.

Smoking is directly responsible for 80 percent of lung cancer deaths in women in the U.S. each year and surpassed breast cancer as the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in the U.S.A.

Female smokers are more at risk than non female smokers . They are 12 times more likely than nonsmoking females to die prematurely from lung cancer and COPD.( chronic obstructive pulmonary disease )

It is not only about lung cancer but women are prone to developing cancers of the oral cavity, pharynx, larynx (voice box), esophagus, pancreas, kidney, bladder, and uterine cervix.They carry a gene that drives lung cancer growth.

Women should be aware of the risks and dangers from smoking and smoking is not cool. For you can die prematurely or have higher risk of developing cancers in your body.

Better to be safe than sorry. Treasure your life and live a healthier and pain free life.

Do not follow the herd blindly and smoke just because all your friends are doing it. Count the cost and the price maybe too high to maintain this unhealthy habit.

Yeah! Indeed smoking is more hazardous to women! 😦 They all should quit if they can. I mean they must!

This is the wrong and unhealthy habit they acquired from the men. Not forgetting those yellowed teeth and fingernails .

It is a costly habit and dangerous to their health , infants and pets too.
