Smokers twice as likely to die of stroke

Public Health England (PHE) launches a new Smokefree Health Harms campaign highlighting the impact and serious damage that smoking causes the body.

The new campaign brings to life the toxic cycle of dirty blood caused by inhaling the dangerous chemicals in cigarettes, including arsenic and cyanide flowing through the body and damaging major organs. The chemicals move through the heart, the lungs and into the bloodstream, finally damaging cells in the brain.
