If there are certain genetic predispositions, the adverse effects of smoking during pregnancy multiply. These genes seem to play an important role in the signaling pathway of the aryl hydrocarbon, which mediates the clearance and detoxification of the poisonous components of tobacco smoke. Mothers who smoke during pregnancy have an altered local and systemic immune system. Using the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction in real time, flow cytometry and immunohistochemical investigations, natural killer cells and inflammatory macrophages are present locally if the woman smokes cigarettes. Smoking mothers have lower percentages of regulatory T cells than pregnant women who do not smoke.
The cells are permanently damaged from the smoke. When you vape and inhale the vapor from the device, the vapor coats the inside of the alveoli of the lungs where the nicotine, alcohol, vegetable oil, flavoring, and other ingredients are directly and immediately diffused into the blood. This immediate diffusion into the blood is very harmful because not only is the blood affected, but the tissue and the lungs are affected directly as well. The alcohol and the vegetable oil in the ‘vape juice’ can cause lung cancer and severe cough or
TNF-α also leads to apoptosis by direct stimulation of caspase pathway and tissue injury. It is known that TNF-α leads to lung toxicity during inflammation and the toxicity induced by drugs or organic substances. It is known that tissue NO increases after inflammation. Due to its high production NO reacts with superoxide radicals leading to the formation of peroxynitrite radicals. The resulting peroxynitrite radicals are highly toxic to the tissue (20).
To begin, our very first point is secondhand smoking. Secondhand smoke is deadly and can cause cancer. It is just deadly when a person had been exposed himself in a smoke in public places for a long time.

Approximately two-thirds of males are diagnosed with the increased rates of lung cancer. Smoking is the greatest risk factor for lung cancer as it accounts for approximately 94% of the cases. Prostate cancer Worldwide, prostate cancer is the second most common cancer and the sixth most common cause of cancer death in males, after lung cancer.
Losing weight too quickly also lead to the formation of gallstones. Gallstones are solid pebbles made of cholesterol that form in your gallbladder -- an organ that stores bile for fat digestion ( RENEE,2014). When people have gallstones in gallbladder, the feeling of hurt is unavoidable. If the situation happens in a long time, people will die because of bile-stone. Weight-Control Information Network (as cited in RENEE, 2014) has showed that if people lose 3 or more pounds per week instead of a lower rate, the chance of forming gallstones increases.
Sulphur dioxide that makes air toxic is produced by the burning of coal in everyday normal activities that make the smoke produced by factories, cars and of burning wood. Abnormalities like global warming and acid rain are caused by the release of carbon dioxide and other harmful gases to the air. This is not only causing environmental degradation but it also has a huge effect of the human health. It can cause a noticeable increase in respiratory problems like asthma and lung cancer. By breathing contaminated air,
