According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer, it has been proven that carcinogens are those chemicals which cause cancer in human beings. It has also been proven time and again that carcinogens need to be avoided from being consumed if the concerned individual is to remain healthy and disease free for the rest of his life. Nonetheless, this is practically not possible for those individuals who are hooked to smoking regular cigarettes on a regular basis simply cannot quit smoking. Even International Agency for Research on Cancer has confirmed that the numbers of carcinogens in a regular cigarette are apt to cause cancer in humans.

 

One of the main reasons why carcinogens cause cancer in humans is because they have the natural ability to divide the DNA of the concerned individual, owing to which the cells start to divide at a speed which is twice or more as fast as the normal pace. As per the International Agency for Research on Cancer, there are different levels of cancer causing possibilities which in turn is based upon the level of carcinogen your body has actually been exposed to. There are four different kinds of carcinogens which may or may not affect the concerned individual. These are then divided into four sub categories as well. While the first two groups are considered to be belonging to those categories wherein carcinogens are directly related to humans, the last two groups of carcinogens are not directly linked to causing cancer in humans.

It has also been highly recommended that in order to avoid being stricken by cancer, human beings should avoid getting linked to carcinogens in any manner. The best possible way to avoid getting stricken by carcinogens is to avoid smoking regular cigarettes and to avoid inhaling the highly offensive second hand smoke which in turn emits from regular cigarettes as well. Apparently, the carcinogen levels, which apparently are very high in cigarettes, are the main reason behind the cancer disease and hence, de-addiction experts strongly recommend that people quit smoking cigarettes permanently. As per the statistical data, over 87% of all deaths pertaining to lung cancer are solely owing to cigarette smoking. In fact, cancers of the bladder as well as the esophagus region too are caused owing to cigarette smoking.

In fact, over 3000 passive smokers are known to lose their lives owing to lung cancer each year in the United States alone. This is an alarming figure and it has also been confirmed that a single cigarette contains over 60 known cancer causing chemicals, which in turn can easily be avoided. It has also been medically confirmed that all noncancerous diseases as well as heart ailments are caused owing to cigarette smoking. Apparently, this is one of the main reasons why people from all walks of lives, especially chain smokers, have started to avoid smoking regular cigarettes and have begun adopting electronic cigarettes instead. An e cigarette is completely devoid of tobacco and it is also smokeless in nature. At the same time, it has also been confirmed that an electric cigarette is cheaper as compared to regular cigarettes and it is also a safer way to fulfill your daily nicotine cravings.
