• 90% of lung cancer deaths are attributed to smoking. It's all about risk and the percentages. Smoking is also the main culprit of developing emphysema, you are six times more likely to develop emphysema if you are a smoker. Smoking is also a major cause of cardiovascular disease and stroke because smoking does the following - •Raise triglycerides (a type of fat in your blood) •Lower “good” cholesterol (HDL) •Make blood sticky and more likely to clot, which can block blood flow to the heart and brain •Damage cells that line the blood vessels •Increase the build up of plaque (fat, cholesterol, calcium, and other substances) in blood vessels •Cause thickening and narrowing of blood vessels
