Sunstone Registered Massage Clinic promotes the highest standard of healthy living and wellness, and that is why we support World No Tobacco Day on May 31st.
World No Tobacco Day aims to raise awareness of the harmful health effects of tobacco.
We all know that tobacco can cause negative health effects.
Smoking inflicts not only our lungs, our heart, our blood vessels but effects our molecules and damages our human cell levels. The damage of smoking cigarettes to your body can also affect your arteries both in the heart and legs.
Smoking lowers your life expectancy for about 10 years less than people who never smoked.
