There are well-known dangers of smoking tobacco, and there are certainly many, but there are also some of the less known problems that people have due to smoking tobacco. We all know that smoking can cause cancer, and sometimes that is not a good enough reason for many people to not smoke or to stop smoking.
We hope that the hidden dangers of which we will write today are a good enough reason for you or your loved one to stop smoking or to never consider starting smoking in the first place.
Erectile dysfunction issues
A long time ago when smoking ads were not banned in the TV commercials, they featured famous actors and singers that portrayed bagasse’s that smoked. Since then many people have started speaking out against smoking, but the biggest problem men can have if they smoke is erectile dysfunction.
If you are not familiar with that term, that means that you could have problems with your penis and the blood flow when trying to get it erect. If you never want to have these issues in bed, don’t smoke tobacco.
To continue the topic of sex problems caused by smoking, infertility is one of them. In males, the number of healthy sperms produced is lowered by half in smokers, while in females the reproductive organs can become infertile. Additionally, even if babies do get conceived, there is an increased chance of stillbirth babies in families where both of the parents are smokers and smoke during the pregnancy period.
Women have a problematic cleansing of their body once a month. During this time, they are prone to mood swings and painful sensations in their stomach due to hormone changes and many body functions. It is reported that women who smoke have higher pain levels and for longer periods of time. It is not exactly known how smoking directly affects the hormonal changes, but studies show that women smokers have bigger problems that persist longer during their period.
Loss of bone density
Smokers have another issue that is hidden deep under the skin. Bone density is lowered in smokers, and a higher chance of developing osteoporosis is also present. After damage is done to the bone, it takes a decade to regenerate that damage and only if you don’t smoke during those ten years.
Today there are a million things that want to attack your body for many reasons. The first line of defense and the best line of defense your body has against all these attacks is a good immunity. If your immunity levels are compromised, there is no telling how your body might react to some challenges it may face. You might get just a cough, or you might get pneumonia and die.
It’s really a gamble, and if you don’t want to take that gamble you should not smoke, or if you already are quit as soon as possible.
