Want To Live A Long Life?

If you're a smoker, the single most important thing you can do to live longer, healthier life is to quit smoking.

You know that smoking stains your teeth. 
Now there's evidence that what it does is even worse than that.
Smokers have more cavities, greater plaque formation,
and more gum disease than non-smokers.

Dentists believe it's because smoking reduces the pH of the saliva in the mouth, 
making it more acidic and less resistant to tooth destroying bacteria.
Ever wondered what happens to your body when you quit smoking? 
Here are just a few benefits of breaking the nicotine habit:

20 minutes later your blood pressure and pulse rate have dropped 
to the levels they were before you smoked.

73 hours later your lung capacity will begin to increase.

3 to 5 years later your risk of a heart attack will be that of a non-smoker.

10 years later your risk of lung cancer will be that of a non-smoker.
