Smoking is dangerous to your physical and mental health. You can develop diseases even when you are not smoking yourself. It affects people of all ages, and it is more dangerous for vulnerable people, like kids and the elderly.
Smoking causes diseases such as cancer, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and lung and heart diseases. It affects people in different ways. And if you don’t get any interventions, not only you will suffer.
How can smoking affect people? Below are different ways:
- First-hand smoke
It is the smoke that affects the cigarette smoker himself. It primarily affects the smoker as he inhales the smoke inward.
- Second-hand smoke
It is the smoke other people inhale when a person lights up tobacco.
- Third-hand smoke
Apart from the dangerous effects of first and second-hand smoke is the residue that comes from tobacco products. The contaminants linger in the skin, clothes, toys, linen, curtains, and different surfaces. And touching and inhaling the residues is a potential health hazard to nonsmokers.
