The effects of smoking on your body

Today I will be talking about the effects of smoking on the human body. Cigarettes contain Tobbaco, which contains many different chemical compounds, including Tar,ammonia, para-methoxybenzaldegyde and nicotine which is a highly addictive drug. It is the number one cause of lung cancer and many more diseases including, heart disease, kidney failure, emphysema and many others. Nicotine narrows your blood vessels and puts added strain on your heart.

Your lungs are designed to take in oxygen and distribute it to the rest of your body. When you inhale smoke instead of air it damages the cells in your lungs. Over time some of your damaged lung cells will become cancerous. It becomes hard for you to breathe and your lungs struggle to get air in and out of your lungs. cigarettes contain Tar, with coat your lungs over time.People who start smoking are at high risk of not being able to stop.

The list of ingredients that cigarette companies put in their cigarettes was a closely held secret. But in 1994 the federal government forced Big Tobacco to make their list of additives public. It turned out that there were 599 different ingredients that they used to make them! Here is the list of the ‘lovely’ things smokers put in their lungs every day.

Arsenic: A naturally occurring poison that has been linked to five different kinds of cancer. Its often used in rat poison.

Ambergris: Whale vomit. The fatty stuff that is formed in sperm whales’ intestines and that is thrown up by whales through their mouths!

Ammonia: Its found in fertilizers, household cleansers, and the insides of fridges.

Benzene: The organic compound found in crude oil, and produced by volcanoes and forest fires. It causes leukaemia, a deadly form of cancer.

Hydrogen cyandide: Is a chemical so poisonous that it was actually used by the Nazis to murder large groups of innocent people!

Acetone: Used in nail-polish remover and paint thinner.

Carbon monoxide: The gas that comes out of a car’s exhaust pipe.

Yuck!!!!! That’s what people smoke!!! Imagine what their lungs look like? Actually you don’t I’ll show you.

Ok that’s creepy…

So now you know what smoking does to you. It makes your lungs look like that. If you’re smoking because you think it’s cool, what’s cooler? A Tar covered lung or a perfectly normal lung? If you smoke you lose ten or more years of your life!

So is smoking bad for you? Yes, smoking gives you diseases, shortens your life, gives you bad breath and is highly addictive.

THE FORGOTTEN KINGDOM

‘My name is Lostspirit. Go well, Tannar, we shall meet again’. Lostspirit’s words haunted Tannar day and night. ‘Where are you?’, Tannar wailed. ‘Go well, go well’, Lostspirit’s words echoed. ‘Show me where you are!’, he yowled. As if in reply, Lostspirit’s voice echoed yet again. ‘We shall meet again, again’.

‘We are ready to attack, your majesty’, Stonefang growled. ‘Good’, Sitka rasped. Stonefang narrowed his eyes. ‘You don’t look battle fit, your highness. Maybe you should let me lead the armies’. ‘No, Stonefang. I appreciate your loyalty but I must lead the south army’ Sitka growled. Stonefang bowed. ‘As you wish, your highness’. Sitka leapt on to a rock and yowled. ‘Gather round, my army! Today we will launch the attack’ he yowled. At once, leopards, panthers, jaguars and tigers gathered around Sitka. Sitka nodded. ‘Stonefang will lead the north army’ he growled. ‘And I shall lead the south army!’. Stonefang nodded. ‘We leave at once!’ Sitka roared.

Tannar shivered. No bird song drifted through the air, and no prey raced about collecting food for winter. ‘Somethings wrong’ he thought. ‘Very wrong’. He turned to Arion who was bristling. ‘Something’s not right’ He muttered. Arion nodded. ‘I can feel it in the air’ he growled, unsheathing his claws. Tannar looked up at the cloud-filled sky. ‘A storm is brewing, a storm that will be remembered forever’. Arion stiffened. ‘What’s wrong?’ Tannar asked. ‘That scent!’ he gasped. Tannar parted his jaws, his eyes widened at the scent that hit him’. ‘He’s coming’ Arion growled. ‘Sitka’s coming’.

Tannar gasped in horror as he drew in the scent of his enemy. ‘how did he find us?’ he choked. He froze when a voice replied. ‘I have my ways’. Arion and Tannar whipped around gaping. ‘whats the matter?’ ‘did you really think you could run away forever?’ the voice sneered. Arion narrowed his eyes and growled. ‘what do you want Sitka?’ he spat. Sitka blinked innocently. ‘why I just wanted to visit my loyal advisor’ he smirked. ‘I am not your advisor!’ Arion spat furiously. ‘not after what you did to Tannar!’. ‘After what I did to Tannar?’ Sitka exclaimed his eyes widening in mock surprise. Arion thrust his face into Sitka’s. ‘Leave us alone or I’ll kill you’ he hissed. As soon as the words left Arion’s mouth, Sitka unsheathed his claws and slashed them across Arion’s face. Arion reared back in surprise yelping. ‘watch you tongue’ Sitka growled. Arion’s eyes blazed with fury. ‘and watch your temper’ Sitka added with a mocking sneer. Arion lunged at Sitka snarling, but Sitka ducked, racking his claws Arion’s side as he passed. Arion flinched his eyes burning with pure hatred. ‘since when did you fight?’ he snarled. ‘since you betrayed me and let that creature out of prison!’ Sitka snapped. Arion lashed his tail in and growled. ‘That creature in my friend!’ he yowled lunging at Sitka. Sitka darted out of the way, then lunged at Arion the moment he hit the ground. But Arion was prepared, he spun around as Sitka flew at him unsheathed his claws and slashed them across Sitka’s face. Sitka flinched narrowing his eyes in fury. ‘enough of this!’ he snarled ‘Attack!’ he roared. Instantly leopards, lions, tigers and cougars leaped out of the bushes snarling. Arion froze. ‘What’s the matter Arion?’ Sitka sneered. ‘cant take on my army?’ he mocked. Arion’s eyes were chips of ice. ‘Is this the best you can do?’ he challenged. ‘let your army do the work for you because your too scared of loosing you precious life?’ he snarled Spilling out al his fury. Sitka narrowed his eyes in fury. ‘how dare you say this to me?’ he hissed. Arion snorted ‘your pathetic, I wonder how you ever made it to being king of the kingdom’. ‘I wonder why I let you survive this long’ Sitka hissed. ‘I wonder why I was ever your advisor’ Arion retorted. Sitka narrowed his eyes ‘you have the spirit of my father’ he growled. Tannar glanced in surprise at Sitka. ‘what does he mean by his father?’ Tannar wondered. ‘enough games’ Arion hissed. Sitka rolled his eyes. ‘your the one putting off the inevitable’ Sitka growled. ‘you’ll die any way’. ‘Then try’ Arion said calmly. Sitka grinned. ‘your choice’ he snarled leaping on Arion. The two fought locked in a vicious battle between life and death. ‘Do you think you can beat me?’ Sitka Spat. ‘I have my army all around me!’ he growled. ‘you depend too much on your army!’ he spat. ‘that’s your weak spot’. Sitka’s only reply was a snarl, as he was pinned down by Arion. ‘Do you think you can kill me?’ Sitka hissed. Arion dug his claws into Sitka’s shoulder. ‘I can if I need to’ he growled. ‘but I’m not a evil as you think!’ he hissed. ‘and thats your weak spot’ Sitka sneered. Arion growled. Slashing Sitka’s cheek. ‘watch your tongue’ Arion sneered. Sitka’s eyes blazed with fire. ‘you!-” Sitka thrust Arion off of him giving himself a shake. ‘oh and sorry about your coat’ Arion smirked. Sitka unsheathed his claws and prepared to leap on Arion but he froze. He stood there eyes betraying surprise. ‘h-how?!’ he stammered. Tannar followed his gaze his eyes too widening in astonishment. ‘Lostspirit!’ Tannar exclaimed. Arion fixed Tannar with a questioning gaze. He opened his mouth but The mystirious cat started to speak. ‘Tannar you must head to the forest’ he rasped. Sitka gasped. ‘It really is you!’ he exclaimed in astonishment. ‘You’r- you’r supposed to be dead!’ he yowled angrily. Lostspirit blinked calmly at Sitka. ‘I am’ he rasped. ‘b-but how?!’ Sitka snarled. Lostspirit turned to Tannar. ‘you must go’ he crocked. ‘I will meet you at the next forest’ he rasped. Tannar nodded, turning to Arion who was still frozed with shock. ‘We have to get out of here’ Tannar growled. Arion shook his head in bewilderment and nodded. ‘lets go’ he growled. ‘Wait a minute’ Sitka growled ‘I’m not done with you yet’ he snarled. ‘Oh yes you are’ Lostspirit growled. Sitka turned around to face Lostspirit with a glare. ‘And who’s going to stop me?’ he sneered. Lostspirit narrowed him eyes as Sitka continued. ‘I killed you before and I will kill you again’ he growled. ‘Its clear that you havent changed’ Lostspirit remarked. Sitka snorted ‘oh nothing has changed father, nothing has changed’.
