Consequences of Smoking

After my many years in practice, I have seen and heard just about everything that can happen, health-wise, to smokers and have listened to them as they would describe their symptoms to me.

The human body can protect itself and eventually recover from many severe and emotional problems relating to smoking.

However, after about 20 years, the body begins to lose the ability to do this and to defend itself against the dangerous chemicals that suppress the immune system.

The immune system is the first line of defence against these terrible infections and diseases, and without this ability to defend itself, the consequences of smoking is open for very catastrophic illnesses.

Below is a table of what can happen to the body over 20 years
