Whilst we already know that air pollution is both bad for the environment and us, for a number of reasons such as putting ourselves at risk of asthma and other diseases as well as the bad overused use of fossil fuels!
It’s also fact that smoking, drinking and oral sex have all been linked with increasing the chances of having oral cancer.
So whether you are a smoker yourself, or are in an environment where passive smoking is common (inhaling others’ smoke through the nasal passage rather than smoking to yourself), you must ask yourself if these are habits you want to continue if you wish to have a long-lasting life.
The same goes for drinking! If you are a regular drinker then this applies to you also, found in multiple case studies such as the research that has been conducted in Taiwan and other countries that can be found here https://www.dentistry.co.uk/2018/10/16/high-levels-air-pollution-linked-oral-cancer/
