How many smokers will eventually get lung cancer? 


When it comes to smoking, I believe many people will think of the phrase “Smoking is harmful to health”, and there is even such a slogan on every pack of cigarettes.


Everyone knows the dangers of smoking to the human body, but for friends with “cigarette addiction”, smoking is indeed the best way to relax emotions.




Out of 100 smokers, how many will eventually get lung cancer?


Everyone knows that smoking is closely related to lung cancer. Out of those 100 smokers, how many will eventually get lung cancer?

After a lot of investigation, we came to the conclusion that one out of every four smokers will suffer from lung cancer.  Calculated at this ratio, then out of 100 smokers, there will be at least 25 people suffering from lung cancer.

Seeing this,  many smokers will have such a fluke in their hearts. They must feel: “I have been smoking for so long and I don’t necessarily feel any uncomfortable.” I want to tell everyone that there is no discomfort now, which does not mean that I will not be in the future.

The nicotine in cigarettes is a highly addictive substance that can damage the cilia and alveoli of the respiratory tract, increase the possibility of infection, and cause lung diseases. In addition, studies have shown that long-term smokers have a 16% risk of developing lung cancer, which is more than 50 times that of non-smokers. People who smoke more than 5 cigarettes a day have a 25% chance of dying of lung cancer by the age of 75.

Many people only know that smoking is harmful to the lungs. In fact, many people ignore one point. The nicotine in cigarettes not only damages the lungs, but long-term smoking can cause certain damage to our whole body.




What are the harms of smoking to people?


1. Increase the incidence of cancer

I believe everyone knows that long-term lung cancer can be induced, but in fact, cigarettes are not so limited to the human body. The harm of smoking to the human body can be said to be almost all over the body, such as oral cancer, esophageal cancer, stomach cancer, bladder cancer, cervical cancer, bowel cancer, etc. All have an inseparable connection with this cigarette.


2. Increase the incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases

Smoking will not only increase the incidence of cancer, but also increase the incidence of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, because smoking is also very harmful to human blood vessels.

Clinical studies have found that smoking can damage vascular endothelial cells and abnormal platelet function, thicken the tube wall, narrow the lumen, slow blood flow, and thicken blood, and cause atherosclerosis and other cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases. Smoking The risk of stroke is 3.5 times that of non-smokers.


3. Affect the quality of fertility

I believe many people know that cigarettes also have a certain impact on fertility. The nicotine in cigarettes not only damages male fertility, but also affects couples’ lives and even leads to infertility.

But for women, long-term smoking, even if they do not smoke during pregnancy, will affect the development of the fetus and the risk of cleft lip and palate.

This is why, doctors will advise smokers to quit smoking first and then consider having children after a period of recuperation.


All in all, smoking is harmful to health. Stop using cigarettes as an excuse to release emotions. There are many ways to release emotions, not just this one! But there is only one life, so don’t hurt your health for the sake of “addiction”.
