Smoking can lead to a variety of diseases, including cancer, cardiovascular, respiratory, reproductive and digestive diseases. The 3 leading causes of death were chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, lung cancer and ischemic heart disease. The tumor including lung cancer, esophageal cancer, gastric cancer, pancreatic cancer, bladder cancer and renal cell carcinoma, 18 times higher risk of lung cancer in smokers than non-smokers; chronic diseases including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, coronary heart disease, vasculitis and gastric ulcer, 50% cardiovascular diseases caused by the death of tobacco can also be attributed to tobacco; lead to many other diseases, such as stroke, osteoporosis and degenerative gingivitis, male sexual dysfunction.
