How and why does tobacco smoking negatively impact on the body and mental health of adolescents aged 12-18?

Addictive: Since many who start never stop, the younger they are the longer they'll be damaging all the cells in their body. Some cells are just not going to function as well w/ inflammation - some may begin a process toward malignancy. The circulatory system is also stressed. The clearest mental issues are the habit and any guilty feelings. It's expensive too! ...Read more

Is there a direct correlation between tobacco smoking and iq?

No: Wonderful question. A lot of people with lower iq smoke because they don't realize the dangers of it. Quite a few people with high iq smoke because they believe they are immune having calculated their risks, or because they succumb to peer pressure, or have some weird other rationale. To my knowledge, there are no studies directly correlating smoking and iq. ...Read more

Does tobacco smoking actually enhance the intelligence?

It is true that it can help you lose weight, but the risk is not worth it. Diet and exercise are a much better choice to make you smarter. ...Read more
