Drugs & Cancer

As many of us may know drugs have the potential to result in the death of an individual. But, alternatively, if such an unfortunate consequence doesn’t come, one just as worse may reside in its place—coming in the form of cancer. However, this is oftentimes something that a number of people overlook. They see a billion advertisements on the tv of someone smoking a cigarette, in addition to the nightmarish effects that come with tobacco products. Yet, what they fail to realize, as a whole, is just how much it can heighten one’s risk of cancer—as certain toxins and cancer are closely related.  

First and foremost, cancer is defined as “a disease caused by an uncontrolled division of abnormal cells in a part of the body.” With this definition, we can gain a better understanding of what lung cancer is. It’s through such that one who abuses these substances can visualize the physical deterioration—happening within his/her body—that goes unseen by the human eye. In turn, lung cancer is “the uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells in one or both lungs. As they grow, the abnormal cells can form tumors and interfere with the functioning of the lung, which provides oxygen to the body via the blood.”

If one was to really and truly known of all the chemicals contained in even one cigarette, he/she would be a lot less likely to continue in such a fatal habit. However, a number of people disregard the harm that it’ll cause them because they don’t feel as though it can happen to them until it happens. Others may want to stop, but find themselves too far addicted to do so. But for those unaware of the all that’s found in tobacco smoke, some of its contains are included but not limited to; acetone, arsenic, tar, butane, benzene, lead, methanol, nicotine, toluene and so on. 

In conclusion, it is best that one gets the help he/she needs before it’s too late. In doing so, he/she will be able to not only gain relief but release, so that he/she may be able to resume living a healthy life. Health risks of cancer—and/or even death—can be decreased exponentially as he/she begins to take care of himself/herself in the right way(s). And by seeking out treatment, he/she can tackle his/her drug problem right at the source.
