Tobacco is the number one cause of preventable diseases and death in Canada.
According to the Canadian Lung Association, approximately 15% of Canadians currently smoke and 45,000 die each year as a result of smoking. The American Lung Association reports that there are approximately 600 ingredients in cigarettes. When burned, it creates over 7,000 chemicals. At least 69 of these chemicals are known to cause cancer, and many are toxic.
According to the Canadian lung association “Breathe”, the rewards of quitting smoking are:
- Within 8 hours of quitting: Carbon monoxide levels drop, oxygen levels go back to normal.
- Within 48 hours of quitting: The chances of having a heart attack start decreasing and the senses of taste and smell start improving.
- Within 72 hours of quitting: Bronchial tubes relax, which makes breathing easier, and lung capacity increases.
- Within 2 weeks to 3 months of quitting: Blood circulation gets better, and lung function improves by as much as 30%.
- Within 6 months of quitting: Couching, tiredness, sinus congestion, and shortness of breath all improve.
- Within 1 year of quitting: The risk of heart attack due to smoking falls to half that of someone who still smokes.
- Within 10 years of quitting: The risk of dying from lung cancer falls to half that of someone who still smokes.
- Within 15 years of quitting: The risk of dying from a heart attack becomes the same as for someone who has never smoked.
