    • Damages wall inside alveoli, reducing SA causing emphysema
    • Tar damages cilia in your lungs and trachea - hairs and mucus catch the dirt and clear the trachea - chest infections are more likely
    • Tar irritates the bronchi and bronchioles - smokers cough or chronic brochitus
    • Carbon monoxide reduces the amount of oxygen in the body - heart rate increases leading to increase blood pressure, damaging artery walls, causing blood clots and increasing the risk of cornorary heart disease
