  • The smoke from a cigarette contains more than 4000 chemicals, which could have various toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic effects. The content and concentration of chemical ingredients can vary widely from one brand or type of cigarette to the next. This is just only some of the content in a cigarette.
  • Not many people know that nicotine in cigarettes is as addictive as heroin and cocaine.
  • The chemicals in cigarettes can damage artery walls, thereby making it easier for cholesterol deposits to build blood-blocking deposits on the artery walls. Smoking also makes platelets, the component of blood that causes clotting and carries oxygen, to be more active, thus increasing the risks of blood clots that cause heart attacks and storks.About 40% of deaths dueto heart disease before the age of 65 are related to smoking.As we mention, Cigarette contain more then 4000 harmful chemicals, and in there, it contains more then 50 cancer-causing substancesSmokers are 22 times more likely to develop lung cancer90% of all lung cancer cases in Singaporean males occur among smokershttp://www.hpb.gov.sg/hpb/default.asp?pg_id=1990

  • Exposure to cigarette smoke, even for brief periods, can cause eye, nose and throat irritation. It can also cause headaches, dizziness, nausea, coughing and wheezingCigarette smoke smoke can make it worse for people already suffering from allergies or asthma.They will have a greater risk of death from heart disease if they breathe in the smoke from the smokersIstimulate the formation of various cancers and/or speed up its developmentChildren of smokers are twice more likely to develop respiratory infections, middle ear infections, asthma and chronic bronchitis than children of non-smokers.Children of smokers are also twice as likely to start smoking themselves compared to children of non-smokers.
  • “Smoking is harmful to your health" say labels on cigarettes-boxes in most European countries but Singapore did a step further by putting pictures of humans parts that will be caused by Smoking.http://app.nea.gov.sg/cms/htdocs/category_sub.asp?cid=248
