The ads on TV that say ‘Smoking causes cancer’ should now be revised to ‘Smoking also gives your unborn children's cancer’.


If you smoke, you’ve probably heard a million times that smoking causes cancer. However, new research from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) has found that men who smoke are also more likely to father children with cancer.

This happens because smoking damages your sperm.

The toxins in cigarette smoke cause oxidative stress, which is countered by the antioxidants in the fruits and veggies you eat. However, in the case of sperm, the antioxidant effect is not as strong and your DNA is not able to repair itself as easily, making your sperm more likely to get damaged. Sperm damage has been linked to many childhood cancers.

If that’s not scary enough, smoking also increases the risk of miscarriages and perinatal deaths.

A fact sheet published by Action on Smoking and Health (ASH), a UK-based public health organization, states that smoking is associated with:
• 5 – 7% of preterm-related deaths
• 5 – 8% of premature births
• 13 – 19% of cases of low birth weight in babies carried to full term
• 23 – 34% of deaths caused by sudden infant death syndrome (cot death)
Infertility specialist Dr. Ranjana Dhanu, Consultant Obstetrician Gynaecologist, Hinduja Healthcare Surgical, points out that apart from this, smoking also causes implantation defects, genetic defects and growth retardation in the baby.

In fact, smoking even hurts your ability to conceive a child in the first place.

If you ever want children, it’s way past time to stop smoking! The ASH fact sheet says that men who smoke are more likely to suffer from erectile dysfunction, lower sperm count, poor sperm mobility and damaged sperm. Women who smoke take longer to conceive and tend to reach menopause faster than non-smokers.
