New tool to help understand Tobacco Related Diseases

December 19, 2014 Jolyn Hull

Tobacco and tobacco smoke affect our bodies from head to toe in complex ways. These affects can result in the development of diseases or conditions that are then considered to be tobacco-related diseases.

In order to simplify the idea of tobacco related diseases, we have created a tool to help you understand where and how different diseases and conditions may present themselves throughout your body due to tobacco use. The tool will show male-specific, female-specific and gender-neutral consequences associated with tobacco use.

Click here to view the tool from Swedish Cancer Institute’s Lung Cancer Screening Program where you can learn about low dose CT’s for the early detection and diagnosis of lung cancer, how to quit smoking and reduce your risk of tobacco related diseases, and more information about tobacco related diseases.
