While anti-smoking ads and disclaimers on cigarette packets may or may not be effective, this viral video may just do the trick. It comes in time for World No Tobacco Day (May 31), and may encourage you to kick the butt.

A North Carolina-based nurse Amanda Eller recently posted a couple of videos on Facebook that show the difference between healthy lungs and a black-coloured cancer-ridden lung. It is especially relevant in India, given latest reports suggesting 6.25 lakh children smoke cigarettes daily in India, according to the Tobacco Atlas report.

The videos show how the two lungs inflate and deflate differently. While the cancerous lungs have lost their elasticity, the healthy lungs are able to regain shape fairly easily after exhalation.

The caption reads, “Cancerous, 1 pack per day for 20 years lungs versus healthy lungs. Still wanna smoke?” Since it was posted on April 23, it has fetched almost 4 crore views.
