Transcript of Smoking and Your Lungs!

Smoking and Your Lungs!
What will happen?
-The mucus forming cells in your lungs grow in size and in number, causing an overflow of mucus in your respiratory system
More down sides!
-When lung tissue is destroyed, the number of air spaces and blood vessels in the lungs decreases. Less oxygen is carried to your body.
But Wait, There's more!
-the surfactant and water layers of the lungs may be damaged by smoke and cause difficulty breathing, wheezing, and coughing.
Smoking: Never Start!
When you smoke a cigarette toxic chemicals and fumes enter your body. Carbon monoxide, tar and over 4,000 other chemicals are found in just one cigarette. These harmful products can make it hard for you to breath. Cigarette smoke can cause anything from a caugh to life threatening cancers.
-The cilia in your lungs slow down and die causing you to be more susceptible to infection and illness.
-Irritation and coughing can become bothersome after one or two smokes.
-When you smoke, the alveoli become less stretchy, so it’s more difficult for your lungs to take in oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide because there is less surface area for diffusion
-tobacco smoke constricts the vessels and capillaries in the body, which causes high blood pressure.
