Tes poumons ont un système qui les nettoie et prévient l'infection. Si tu respires la cigarette, tu endommages ce système et les germes, les saletés et les produits chimiques nocifs qui entrent dans tes poumons n'en ressortent pas. Cela te rend susceptible de souffrir d'une maladie ou d'une infection pulmonaire.</li> <li>Si tu fumes, tes poumons auront plus de difficulté à absorber l'oxygène et à éliminer le dioxyde de carbone.</li> <li>À la longue, le tabagisme cause le cancer. Tu sais ce que c'est d'avoir le cancer. N'augmente pas tes chances de l'avoir une autre fois.</li> <li>Il est possible que tu sois plus sensible aux problèmes pulmonaires. Le tabagisme et l'exposition à la fumée peuvent te rendre encore plus sensible.</li> <li>Certains traitements contre le cancer peuvent affaiblir tes os. Le tabagisme réduit la quantité de calcium et de vitamine D que tu absorbes; cela signifie que tes os pourraient prendre plus longtemps avant de redevenir forts.</li> </ul>

This means smoke from someone else’s burning cigarette and the smoke they breathe out. </p><h2>True or false? If you don’t inhale when you smoke, you won’t get cancer. </h2><h3>Answer: False! </h3><p>Smoking is a major risk factor for lung cancer, but it also increases the risk of mouth cancer, pharyngeal (say: fa-rin-JEE-al) cancer (cancer of the throat) and cancer of the larynx, as smoke passes over these areas when it is breathed in. </p><p>Smoking also increases the risk of cancer of the esophagus and stomach cancer. The amount you smoke, the age you started, and the longer you keep on smoking are all factors in your risk for getting cancer.</p>https://assets.aboutkidshealth.ca/AKHAssets/Smoking_and_vaping_TTC_Cancer.jpg
