One of the effects of cigar smoking is that this contributes to lung illnesses such as the popular lung cancer to which most smokers are dallying with. Smoking affects the growth of the lungs, hence a prime reason for people having hard times in storing the proper air when they get tired or engage in rigorous activities such as jogging or running.
Comparing the smoker to a non-smoking individual, it will be noticed that the latter would be able to last longer than the person who smokes regularly and addictively. The number of puffs are telling factors, hence the rate of cigarette smokers who would encounter health issues at younger ages.
Smoking has a better weight of health issues over health benefits. While tobaccos are tagged to have health benefits, the overall awareness is that smoking is truly bad for the health. Besides it has been proven that based on the mortality rate of deaths, lung cancer is a prime suspect in much of the deaths in a year.
