    Default Do You Know Smokers Die Ten Years Sooner Than Non-Smokers

    According to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), tobacco is the leading cause of preventable illness and death in the United States and that, in 2011, an estimated 19 percent of U.S. adults were cigarette smokers.4 This is down from over 40% a few decades ago. Good progress. But for those who do smoke, diseases leading to death are common. Smoker's mortality rates are nearly 3 times greater than those of nonsmokers and essentially equal between men and women. People who smoke are up to six times more likely to suffer a heart attack than nonsmokers, and the risk increases with the number of cigarettes smoked. Cigarette smoking causes an estimated 443,000 deaths each year, including approximately 49,000 deaths due to exposure to secondhand smoke. It is important to know that, on average, smokers die twelve years sooner than non-smokers. Twelve years! That's more than a decade! It means life for smokers is more than ten percent shorter than for non-smokers. So be Careful!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Smoking deaths continue to increase among women because women who smoke now smoke as much as men do.

    This is obvious because the person who inhaled fresh air contains the maximum amount of oxygen but the person who smoke inhaled air that contains a very high amount of tar which is very dangerous for our lungs causing lung cancer also, it automatically decreases the age of a person.This is the correct reason for lowering the age.

    It's so sad that there are so many deaths due to smoking. What's even worse is that there are so many due to secondhand smoke. Those who do smoke should be more considerate of those around them when smoking in public places.

    Every smoker know all about this, but people want to enjoy their life in that way too.What i really think about this issue, we should go for smoking vocationally, not regularly and maintain a proper diet chart for that, to recover your health.Go for routine checkup and go through a proper medicine.
