Your assignment is to make a chart of all the possible consequences of smoking. Put the name of the consequence (eg, lung cancer) in the left-hand column. The other column headings will be "Signs and symptoms," and "Prognosis" or Outlook (eg, can this condition be cured or reversed? If so, how? If not, why not?) Fill in this information for each consequence, consulting the Internet or other sources for more information. Give detailed information. Some headings will require more than one answer.

This is for my Health related class, please help asap!

lung cancer cannot be reversed as the damage is already done although you can go see your doctor for help with it or a specialist. Cigarette smoking is the number one risk factor for lung cancer. In the United States, cigarette smoking is linked to about 80% to 90% of lung cancer deaths. Using other tobacco products such as cigars or pipes also increases the risk for lung cancer. Tobacco smoke is a toxic mix of more than 7,000 chemicals.  smoking can cause your teeth to be yellow because over time, smoking causes the teeth to turn yellow or even yellowish brown.  the main or most popular cause of dental staining is tar and nicotine. The nicotine and tar from smoking seeps into the tooth's enamel through tiny pores, leaving the teeth discolored. Smoking causes cancer, heart disease, stroke, lung diseases, diabetes, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Smoking also increases risk for tuberculosis, certain eye diseases, and problems of the immune system, including rheumatoid arthritis. Smoking can cause lung disease by damaging your airways and the small air sacs (alveoli) found in your lungs. Lung diseases caused by smoking include COPD, which includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Cigarette smoking causes most cases of lung cancer. Smoking harms nearly every organ in the body, including the heart, blood vessels, lungs, eyes, mouth, reproductive organs, bones, bladder, and digestive organs. This article focuses on how smoking affects the heart and blood vessels. Smoking damages the airways and small air sacs in your lungs. This damage starts soon after someone starts smoking, and lung function continues to worsen as long as the person smokes. Still, it may take years for the problem to become noticeable enough for lung disease to be diagnosed
