We all know that smoking is dangerous and life-threatening, and many countries and organizations are urging to quit, but not everyone may know that there are daily habits that are no less dangerous than smoking and sometimes more dangerous.
Scientists have identified daily habits that kill human health, as does smoking, and in some cases more severely, as the British newspaper “The Guardian” reported, and these habits include:
Research conducted by Brigham Young University psychology professor Julian Holt-Lunstad concluded that loneliness reduces lifespan by the equivalent of smoking 15 cigarettes a day.
And not only that, there are also social media that exacerbate this problem. It is true that its stated goal is to help people mix more, but its massive spread has reduced personal contact and increased loneliness rates, which have been described as a global disease.
Sitting for long hours
A 2014 study found that sitting all day increases the risk of a range of cancers, and the researchers included in their analyzes data from four million people that includes how often they sat down to watch TV, do work and commute.
According to the study, every two-hour increase in sitting time increases a person’s risk of colon, endometrial and lung cancer, regardless of whether the person exercises during the day.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has described sleep deprivation as a public health problem, with about 50 to 70 million people in the United States suffering from a sleep disorder.
Professor Valery Gafarov, of the World Health Organization, noted in 2015 that inadequate sleep increases the risk of stroke and heart attack to similar degrees to regular cigarette use.
Cosmetic practices that target skin discoloration:
In 2014, researchers published a study that found that cosmetic practices aimed at changing skin color led to more cases of skin cancer compared to lung cancer associated with smoking.
In 2016, researchers concluded that mortality rates are related to malnutrition.
He also discovered that processed sugary foods rich in saturated fat can expose people to potentially fatal diseases at rates similar, if not greater, than smoking.
