We’ve all heard by now that smoking is very bad for the body.
We know that smoking can lead to cancer, emphysema, heart disease and a host of other maladies.
However, most of us don’t know about the other nasty things that smoking can do to the body.
For instance, did you know that smoking can cause some women to grow facial hair, make them more prone to vaginal infections and even worsen an existing case of acne? (Apparently, smokers’ pimples are much harder to treat than non-smokers.)
I did not know either until I visited the fascinating site, Tobacco Body.
The Tobacco Body is a great site for anyone who wants to quit the habit for good or just wants to know how bad smoking really is.
On a personal note, speaking as someone who lost her maternal grandfather and uncle to lung cancer, I wish that there had been something around like this when they made the decision to smoke.
