Tobacco smoke is interspersed with around 4000 ingredients and contains a high concentration of various carcinogenic pollutants which trigger the body’s own inflammatory reactions in the human organism and can cause numerous health complaints and serious clinical pictures.
According to statistical surveys carried out by Techniker Krankenkasse, an average of 140000 people die every year in Germany from health complications or illnesses directly related to tobacco consumption.
Medical statistics show that smoking is indeed the most common single cause of cancer in industrialised countries. People who smoke are twice as likely as non-smokers to develop cancer or cardiovascular disease and die from the consequences. Smokers therefore have an above-average risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke during their lifetime.
If you consume around 20 cigarettes a day, your skin will age by around 10 years.
20 Cigarettes a Day Cause Your Skin to Age by up to 10 years
According to research by the Charité Berlin,
smoking is one of the most important factors in skin ageing, as it floods the
skin cells with harmful substances and reduces their oxygen supply. If you
consume around 20 cigarettes a day, your skin will age by around 10 years.

Smoking Is The No. 1 Cause For Lung Cancer
Smoking has been shown to trigger cancer of the lungs, pancreas, oral cavity, larynx, esophagus, uterus, breast, bone marrow, kidney, bladder and colon.
Since tobacco smoke has at least 50 different chemical compounds that are officially classified as carcinogenic, smoking alters human DNA and promotes the formation of gene mutations that promote the development of health complications.
Your genetic make-up is therefore also affected by your tobacco consumption. Scientific studies also show that smoking reduces men’s memory by progressively fuelling the aging process of the male brain.
Investigations predict that 50% of all "habitual smokers" will die prematurely because of their vice
According to a recent study by the German Cancer Society, 50% of “habitual smokers” are expected to die because of health problems caused by their tobacco consumption.
In the case of heavy smokers, the rate will be comparatively higher due to their more intensive tobacco consumption. This prognosis supports the harmful potential of smoking.
Blood vessels, brain, skin, teeth, legs, lungs, mouth, throat, larynx and your reproductive organs suffer from the toxic substances that you inhale unintentionally. Through inhalation, the tobacco smoke enters your bloodstream and distributes the carcinogenic substances throughout your body.
As a smoker, you therefore also have a blatantly high risk of developing cancer on organs that do not come into direct contact with the smoke. In principle, smokers suffer more than average from lung cancer.
Stop smoking and stop the "downward spiral" for your health
Get active and stop smoking. Instead of plunging your health into a continuous downward spiral, promote it and take your physical and mental condition to a new level.
Reduce the likelihood of developing health problems due to your tobacco use and prove that you are not included in the statistics of the German Cancer Society, which predicts that smokers will die earlier as a result of their vice.
Smoking can cause illnesses or disease-specific symptoms that have a lasting negative impact on your personal quality of life. Put a stop to this development and distance yourself from smoking.
Become a non-smoker and be vital, mentally fit and maintain a healthy appearance
If you quit smoking, your organism will thank you for this decision with a firmer, healthier skin and reduce your hair loss. After only 12 hours without a cigarette, the carbon monoxide content in your blood decreases, while your oxygen level stabilises at a healthy level.
This process optimizes the oxygen supply to all organs and the skin. As a result, the performance of all organs increases and gives you a radiant complexion.
Your organism becomes more efficient and finds a better basic health condition. Within a time window of 2 weeks up to a maximum of 3 months without tobacco consumption, your circulation is permanently stabilised and your lung function maximised.
Subsequently, your risk of developing cancer is reduced. A smoking cessation is therefore basically linked to an improved health prognosis
