World No Tobacco Day being held on May 30th, 2018 focuses on the impact tobacco has on cardiovascular health of people worldwide.

Good news! The effects of smoking are actually reversed with every cigarette you don’t have.

Improved heart health

Your heart rate slows, and your blood pressure becomes more stable, even after quitting smoking for just one day!

Healthier lungs

Enjoy less coughing and wheezing with your lungs able to function more effectively, becoming better at removing mucus, tar and dust from your lungs.

Better immune system

Your immune system is able to recover making your body better at fighting off infection. Less illness and downtime.

Increased blood flow

Your blood is less thick and sticky and blood flow to your hands and feet will improve.

Quitting smoking will not get rid of the fatty deposits that are already there. But it will lower the levels of cholesterol and fats circulating in your blood, which will help to slow the build-up of new fatty deposits in your arteries.
