      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Smoking can indeed have negative effects on all organs in the body, as well as on one's sex life. The harmful chemicals in cigarettes can damage the blood vessels and reduce blood flow to various organs, leading to increased risks of heart disease, stroke, and erectile dysfunction in men.

      36,000

    • E.

      46,000

    Correct Answer
    D. 36,000
    Explanation
    Smoking increases the heart rate and blood pressure, causing the heart to work harder. This extra strain on the heart leads to an increased number of beats per minute. Therefore, if you smoke, your heart will be forced to beat approximately 36,000 more times in a day compared to a non-smoker.

  • 4. 

    How soon after quitting smoking will your blood pressure and heart rate go down?

    • A.

      1 day

    • B.

      20 minutes

    • C.

      1 week

    • D.

      1 month

    • E.

      2 hours

    Correct Answer
    B. 20 minutes
    Explanation
    When a person quits smoking, their blood pressure and heart rate start to decrease within 20 minutes. This is because smoking causes an immediate increase in heart rate and blood pressure due to the nicotine and other chemicals present in cigarettes. Once smoking is stopped, the body begins to repair itself, and the heart rate and blood pressure return to normal within a short period of time. Therefore, within just 20 minutes of quitting smoking, the positive effects on blood pressure and heart rate can already be observed.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    When you quit smoking, your body will start to heal immediately because smoking damages various organs and systems in the body. The healing process begins as soon as you stop smoking, and within minutes, your heart rate and blood pressure start to decrease. Within a few days, your lung function improves, and your sense of taste and smell start to return. Over time, the risk of developing smoking-related diseases such as lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke decreases significantly. Therefore, it is true that your body will start to heal immediately when you quit smoking.

    • A.

      1 day

    • B.

      20 minutes

    • C.

      2 days

    • D.

      1 week

    • E.

      2 weeks

    Correct Answer
    C. 2 days
    Explanation
    After quitting smoking, your sense of taste and smell will start to improve within 2 days. Smoking damages the taste buds and olfactory receptors, which are responsible for detecting flavors and scents. When you quit smoking, the inflammation and damage caused by smoking start to heal, allowing the taste buds and olfactory receptors to function properly again. This leads to an improvement in your ability to taste and smell various foods and fragrances.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    How soon after quitting smoking will your risk of lung cancer be the same as a non-smoker?

    • A.

      1 year

    • B.

      10 years

    • C.

      15 years

    • D.

      20 years

    • E.

      Never

    Correct Answer
    B. 10 years
    Explanation
    It takes approximately 10 years after quitting smoking for the risk of lung cancer to be the same as that of a non-smoker. This is because the body needs time to heal and repair the damage caused by smoking. Over time, the lungs gradually recover and the risk of developing lung cancer decreases. Therefore, after 10 years of quitting smoking, the risk of lung cancer becomes similar to that of someone who has never smoked.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Babies born to mothers who smoke are at higher risk for?

    • A.

      Being born ‘stillborn’ (not alive)

    • B.

      Dying in the first 28 days of life

    • C.

      Birth Defects

    • D.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    Babies born to mothers who smoke are at a higher risk for being born 'stillborn', dying in the first 28 days of life, and having birth defects. Smoking during pregnancy can restrict the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the fetus, leading to various complications. It increases the chances of stillbirth, which refers to the delivery of a baby who has died in the womb. Smoking also increases the risk of neonatal mortality, with infants more likely to die within the first month of life. Additionally, smoking increases the likelihood of birth defects, such as cleft lip or palate, heart defects, and developmental issues.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Women who smoke during pregnancy have increased chances of having a baby (check all that apply)

    • A.

      Who is born prematurely

    • B.

      Who is a low birth weight

    • C.

      Who is very large at birth

    • D.

      Who dies of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Who is born prematurely
    B. Who is a low birth weight
    D. Who dies of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)
    Explanation
    Smoking during pregnancy has been linked to various negative outcomes for the baby. It increases the chances of the baby being born prematurely, which means they are delivered before completing the full term of pregnancy. It also increases the risk of the baby having a low birth weight, which can lead to various health problems. Additionally, smoking during pregnancy has been associated with an increased risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), which is the unexplained death of a seemingly healthy baby during sleep.
