Warning: Cigarette smoking presents far more health hazards than you probably realize. Sure, just about everybody knows that smoking causes lung cancer and respiratory and heart problems. But its adverse effects don't stop there. Far from it. "Some people are very health conscious even though they smoke and know a lot about the various problems associated with smoking," said John Spangler, M.D., professor of family and community medicine at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center and a recognized expert in tobacco use and smoking cessation. "But other people aren't as informed, so, overall, the less publicized, more unusual effects of smoking are not well known."
