Smoking Can Destroy You And Your Pet Animal
Smoking is not just dangerous to human's health, but it can also be harmful to pet animals as well. When pet animals are mentioned, it is not limited to just cats and dogs but all animals that people can keep in their house. Pet, sometimes called as companion animal, is an animal kept primarily for a person's company or protection, as opposed to working animals, sport animals, livestock, and laboratory animals, which are kept primarily for performance, agricultural value, and research.
Smoking Can Destroy You
According to a new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine, people who consistently smoked an average of less than one cigarette per day over the course of their life were 64 percent more likely to die an early death than people who had never smoked. As per CBS reported, that figure rose to 87 percent for people who smoked between one and 10 cigarettes per day. Meaning even occasional cigarette smoking can be deadly, what more if a person smokes a bunch of cigarettes per day.
Smoking causes a variety of diseases affecting almost every organ in the human body, making it the leading cause of death worldwide. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that every year almost 6 million people die from a smoking-related disease, and in the United States alone, smoking accounts for 480,000 yearly deaths. It's not just you that can be harmed by cigarette smoking, but also your pets in your house such as dogs and cats.
Smoking Can Destroy Your Animal
The most popular pets are noted for their attractive appearances and their loyal or playful personalities. But those cute traits and distinctions are not anymore noticable once they got disease or illness cause by the owners cigarette smoking. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has released an advisory warning smoke can kill your pets. That is why all health officials are urging smokers to quit cigarette smoking as early as now - if only to save their pets.
According to Daily Mail, the chemicals that can be found in tobacco smoke wreak havoc on the blood and organs of pets such as cats, dogs, guinea pigs, hamsters and even fish - driving up their risk of developing cancer, heart disease or lung disease. Compared to human studies, research on smoking-related illnesses in animals remains relatively scarce. 'Smoking's not only harmful to people; it's harmful to pets, too,' said FDA veterinarian Carmela Stamper.
