We all know how dangerous smoking is for the human body and how it can destroy everything from the lungs, to the heart, and other vital organs. The consumption of cigarettes with their dangerous toxins has been found and known to cause deterioration in all areas of the human body as well as cause cancer of various kinds. There are many misconceptions regarding smoking though where some people believe certain kinds of smoking are not as dangerous as others. I hope that this article can help set the record straight in regards to the danger and harm caused by smoking.
Cigarettes are not the only culprit when it comes to suffering health and heart problems. Electronic cigarettes, hookahs, and waterpipes all hurt your heart and your body in general. The European Society of Cardiology has found that each of these forms of smoking are just as dangerous as traditional cigarettes.
Dr. Joep Perk from the ESC was quoted in saying “smoking of all types is still, without any competition, the strongest risk factor for cardiovascular disease. It beats everything.” Dr. Joep went on to say, “There has been a lot of research over the past 2-3 years which makes us very clear that all tobacco use, including the water pipe, smokeless tobacco and electronic cigarettes, is simply not good for your health.”
Some studies have even alluded to the fact that water pipes and hookahs could be more dangerous than cigarettes. Dr. Perk has found that the longer smoking sessions with these devices paired with deeper and more prolonged inhalations could lead to increased levels of toxin exposure. Electronic cigarettes are another major risk factor as they are quite useful when trying to quit smoking however it has led an increased population of youths to pick up the deadly habit.
