The Negative Effects of Smoking with Psoriasis
You likely know that smoking cigarettes increases your risk for lung cancer. You may even know that a habit of smoking a pack per day also increases your chances of:
- Cardiovascular disease
- Bladder cancer
- Kidney cancer
- Throat cancer
If that’s not enough to make you put down the pack, consider that smoking also increases your chances of getting psoriasis. If you already have psoriasis, you’re likely to have more severe symptoms. If you’re a woman, this likelihood increases even further.
