Along with the growing public awareness of health problems caused by smoking tobacco, smoking is becoming less popular in many parts of the world. The decline in the number of people smoking cigarettes is also observed in Poland. Men are still the majority of addicted people. Both active and passive smoking can lead to cardiovascular diseases, strokes, and lung and laryngeal cancers. Recent studies show that the compounds contained in cigarette smoke can induce dysfunction of endocrine system and disrupt the process of spermatogenesis in smokers.
