Smoking: Tobacco contains numerous substances that have been shown in studies to cause cancers, COPD, heart disease, and contribute to many other potentially damaging and death contributing conditions. This is true of smoking, snuffing, chewing and being exposed second hand.

May cause Ca: While excess smoking, several pcks/wk may help induce malignancy in the lungs in the form of squamous cancer, the major problem is in production of elastase. This enzyme initiated by smoking, in most people weakens the elastic tissue of the chest to produce emphysema, causes severe wrinkling of the face and weakens the elastic tissue of major arteries leading to aortic aneurysms

Very dangerous.: There's nothing good about cigarette smoking. There are about 42 carcinogens in cigarettes, along with various toxins among the more than 4000 ingredients in a cigarette, believe it or not. Cancer, heart disease, lung disease. Very bad habit to pick up.
