What 7 Smoker Vs. Non-Smoker Identical Twins Look Like After Years of Smoking

March 13, 2015 3 min read

Although identical twins are born with “nearly identical” DNA, that DNA changes over their life span. It can change due to the foods they eat, environmental toxicity and the chemicals they’re exposed to in their lifetime. Identical twins are also excellent subjects for study because they allow us to observe the effects of toxicity on the human body on two different bodies with the same genetic make-up. So if only one twin has a prolonged exposure to something like cigarettes, and the other one doesn’t, we can visually assess some very interesting physical changes taking place. These pictures tell that story. According to a study led by the University of Colorado at Boulder, genetics play a significant role in if and how smokers quit. Emotions play a big part of why smokers keep smoking. The tendency to light up when feelings of anger, joy and sadness appear is the reason why people who may be described as “emotional” have a harder time quitting. They say smokers who want to quit would benefit greatly from cessation programs that deal with the emotions of smoking. Some say that anger is visible in the faces of many smokers, perhaps even in the twins presented below. Among other facial features that identify smokers are aging skin, bags under the eyes and more folds and ridges around the lips. Can you guess which twins are smokers?



Actually, both of these brothers are smokers. However, the brother on the right has smoked for 14 years longer than his brother, which is why he appears much older.


Smoker-2 Both twins are actually smokers, but the twin on the left has been smoking 17 years longer than her identical twin. You can see that the twin who has been smoking longer has larger bags under her eyes and more lines around her lips. [bctt tweet="What 7 Smoker Vs.

smoker-3 Did you guess the twin on the above right? She’s smoked for 16 years of her life and spent considerable time in the sun which can age the skin, whereas her twin looks at least 10 years younger since she never picked up smoking.


smoker-4 If you guessed the twin on the left, you’d be right. She has smoked half a pack of cigarettes a day for the past 14 years, while her twin has never smoked. Her cigarette habit has given her baggy eyes and has made her look much older than her identical twin at 52 years old.


smoker-5 If you guessed the woman on the right, you would be correct. Not only does she have more wrinkles on her face, but her lips aren’t as plump either. Would you have guessed they were identical twins?


smoker-6 The smoker is on the right.


smoker-7 If you guessed the one on the left you are correct. Are you a smoker? Would you have guessed smoking could have this impact on your appearance?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
