The message is clear and straightforward. Parents ought to quit smoking cigarettes if they value their children’s health.
It has now been proved without a shadow of doubt that passive inhalation of cigarette smoke causes permanent damage to kids’ health. The second-hand smoke seriously messes up the young one’s arteries.
This in turn greatly increases the probability that they will face cardiac complications and strokes in the future. A political movement is picking up speed that will make cigarette smoking in cars and public places as rare as people spitting on sidewalks in civilized society.
This is all being done for the future health status of the progeny. Nobody wants to ruin the future generations that will be leading the world one day. The evidence confirms that taking in smoke exhaled by adults leads to children’s arteries undergoing a thickening process. So the smokers. especially parents, need to quit smoking.
Furthermore, a total of 3.3 years of ageing is added to the general state of the blood vessels. This is bad news indeed and the sooner steps are taken to eradicate this future time bomb the better it is for our children and their children’s children.
Both parents and prospective parents ought to stay away from smoking or quit smoking. They should steer clear of all tobacco products since these intoxicants contain nicotine which causes lung cancer and ten thousand other ailments and maladies.
Besides the obvious effect of smoking on the lungs, there are the menaces of heart attack, stroke and hypertension. Six million individuals smoke their way to an early grave each year. A further six hundred thousand are the unwilling yet naïve victims of passive smoking.
There happen to be well over 4000 chemicals in tobacco products and they form a potent cocktail each time you light up a coffin nail. Of these 250 are clearly health hazards while at least 50 are definitely carcinogenic.
The goal is an environment that is pristine and 100% smoke free. And it will need all smokers to quit smoking. Of course, it will take some time before this objective is achieved. After all Rome wasn’t built in a day!
