Smoking Health Risks Shared By Non-Smokers

Smoking health risks are not only the concern of smokers, who willfully cling to the vice despite the obvious harm it entails. The pangs of death equally hover on nonsmokers who happen to share the same environment with smokers.

How smoking health risks affect non-smokers are revealed in statistics from the US Environmental Protection Agency. About 35,000 deaths from heart disease, and 3,000 from lung cancer every year, are directly attributed to inhaling second hand smoke coming from smokers.

Non smokers who have asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, or high blood, also ran the risks of aggravating their condition when subjected to constant second hand smoke.

The health risks smoking brings about encompasses all age ranges. If the other health risks don't have much of an impact on you, you better take notice of this one, especially if you're a parent: A 1995 study reports that babies with smoking parents or nannies are 3.5 times more likely to die of sudden infant death syndrome [SIDS} than babies unexposed to cigarette smoke.

I really wonder what makes it so difficult for smokers to kick the habit. [I'm not alone though. The American Heart Association shares my sentiment]. Smokers usually soften up only when the injurious effects have already taken its toll on their health.  What's injurious, anyway, in tobacco, cigar, and cigarette smoking? It's the nicotine, a poisonous or toxic alkaloid found in tobacco leaves, which is the stuff the previously mentioned products are made of. Nicotine is used as an insecticide.

Now, do you still wonder why there are so many health risks associated with smoking? The bigger question, to my mind, is why it was allowed to be marketed in the first place. It has poisoned, and is still poisoning, a large chunk of the world's population.
