This is research by one teacher at the Yan Chai Hospital Tung Chu Ying Memorial School in Hong Kong named Ryan Au was worried about his students starting to smoke, thus he decided to make a presentation showing the effects of smoking to the lungs. He used pig’s lungs as an example where one of the two pairs being inflated with a clear air, while the other one with a smoke of 60 cigarettes. He cut them both revealing that the lungs with the inflated clear smoke were perfectly pink, while the other pair was charred and black.
Normally, there are lot of consequences from smoking and one of them is that the color of the lungs is affected by smoking and it changes really fast just after 60 cigarettes. Thus, a chain smoker can get this blackish lung color in 30 days if smoking a pack per day (it contains 20 cigarettes). The Action on Smoking and Health organization says that there have been over 1 billion tobacco-associated deaths, and the number is expected to increase to 1.6 billion over the following two decades.
When you smoke cigarettes, many chemicals enter your body through your lungs. Burning tobacco produces more than 4,000 chemicals. Nicotine (NIK-uh-TEEN), carbon monoxide (muh-NOK-side), and tars are some of these substances.
Smoking greatly affects your lungs and airways. Smokers get a variety of problems related to breathing. Problems range from an annoying cough to grave illness like emphysema (EM-fuh-ZEE-muh) and cancer.
