Which body part or function is involved in Smoking?

The smallest unit of the human body is the cell, and every cell of the body requires oxygen to keep alive and healthy. Your body also has got to expel carbon dioxide. This gas is a waste product that is produced by the cells during their regular working. Your lungs are specially composed to exchange these gases every time you inhale in and exhale out. The lungs are a pair of spongy, air-filled organs found on each side of the chest (thorax). The trachea (windpipe) takes inhaled air into the lungs via its tubular branches, called bronchi. The bronchi then split up into smaller and smaller branches (bronchioles). The bronchioles ultimately end in bundles of microscopic air sacs called alveoli. In the alveoli, gaseous exchange take place takes from the air is immersed into the blood. Carbon dioxide, a waste product of metabolism, moves from the blood to the alveoli, where it can be blown out. Between the alveoli is a thin and delicate layer of cells called the interstitium, which includes blood vessels and cells that assist and support the alveoli.
