Cancer


The chemicals in cigarettes poison the body and this causes
small lumps called tumours to grow. These tumours are cancer. They
grow everywhere in the body, but especially the places where the
cigarette smoke gets to first – like the mouth and throat, and
lungs.

Cancer then spreads to other parts of the body – into vital
organs like the liver, bladder and bowel, stomach and pancreas.
Into reproductive organs like the ovaries, cervix and uterus. Into
the bones and blood.

While cancer can be treated, it has no cure. Cancer can
kill you. Smoking is the number one cause of
cancer.
