Human Body
Smoking impacts the blood vessels to your neck and brain and can cause a stroke. A stroke occurs when the blood supply to a part of your brain is blocked or greatly reduced by a rupturing of a blood vessel or development of a clot in the brain, depriving brain tissue of oxygen and food. It only takes a few minutes without oxygen for your brain cells to begin to die [8].
Smoking can speed up the aging process of your skin and make you develop wrinkles at a faster rate [30, 35].
