Are you a current or former smoker? The effects of smoking are serious, but it's not too late to heal your body and prevent cancer and heart disease!
You probably know the statistics; smoking is more than just a bad habit. It is a common killer, and the dangers of smoking are real!
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths,1 and it is most often caused by smoking.
Heart disease is another very real danger of smoking. More than 2,600 people die every day from heart disease,2 and researchers have found that smoking dramatically increases your risk for stroke, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, and coronary heart disease.
In spite of these risks, some 46 million American men and women smoke!3
But you can build back your health if you are a former (or even current) smoker!
The real danger of smoking is that smoking harms your body every time you light up.
Researchers are not exactly sure how smoking causes so much damage, but they do agree that the free radicals and oxidation produced from smoking lead to disease.
Free radicals are unstable molecules in your body. They are dangerous because they steal molecules from healthy cells, damaging them in a process called oxidation. Everyday life produces free radicals, but extra stress (from smoking, poor eating habits, emotional stress and lack of sleep) increases the production of free radicals at an alarming rate.
Antioxidants are nutrients that fight free radicals and oxidation. They can minimize damage to your body as you quit smoking and help you heal once you've kicked the habit. Unfortunately, smoking dramatically depletes the antioxidants in your body, so it's important to get enough of these potent vitamins and nutrients to counteract free radical damage.
Follow our guidelines to protect and heal your body as you recover from smoking addiction.
