Smoking and Tobacco
how many cigarette smoking per day leads to heart dieases ? i wnt to know that in number of cigare per day.....
How many cigarettes per day does it take to cause heart disease? The answer: not many. No one has an exact figure, because, of course, individuals vary in their lifestyle (diet, exercise, weight, stress) and genetic (inherited from family) traits. But, we do know that even exposure to someone else's (secondhand) smoke is enough to cause people to have heart attacks. And, it's not just heart disease that smokers get, but also stroke, lung disease, 15 kinds of cancer, impotence, wrinkles, tooth loss, bad breath, memory loss, depression and others.
Do yourself and everyone around you a favor. Quit now. In fact call 800-QUIT-NOW -- Ohio's state sponsored -- and highly effective quitline.
Do it now.
