Damage From Smoking Is Quick And Irreversible

Filed under: arteries,cigarette,effects of smoking,quit smoking,Smoking,Uncategorized — robertprice @ 4:13 pm


For anyone really wondering how damaging smoking is then listen to this. One cigarette, yes just one, is enough to start hardening your arteries. A new study looked at the damaging effects of smoking in those people who are considered “light” smokers.

After smoking just one cigarette, then going for a run on a treadmill, the arteries of a relatively healthy 18-30 year old, harden an astonishing 25%. That’s just after one cigarette, imagine if you are smoking 3 or 4 or even a pack a day. The problems get worse the more often you smoke too.

The study concluded that if smoking is continued, the damage becomes more severe, and irreversible. Now I don’t know if your definition of irreversible is different than mine, but to me, irreversible means that once the damage has been done, it can’t be fixed. Ever. Now if you think smoking is the most important part of your life, or is worth your life than go ahead keep puffing. However, I will warn you, when you’re older (I say older because the chances of living a long life are significantly reduced when you smoke) and you start having to deal with health problems you will have no one to blame, but yourself.

Mother To Child Transmission Of Cancer Possible, But Extremely Rare


During pregnancy a lot of different, harmful substances can pass to the child. Smoking, alcohol, and drugs are among the variety of different substances that can cause devastating effects to the unborn child. The baby be born with a wide array of disorders, from congenital disorders, to drug addiction, to fetal alcohol syndrome. The result can be very damaging and may even cause the death of the child. However, among the numerous different things that can effect an unborn child, cancer originating from the mother has been talked about, argued about, but only now are there definitive answers.

Researches have discovered the cancer can be transmitted to the child, from the mother during pregnancy. A 28-year-old Japanese woman gave birth to a baby girl. Everything appeared fine until a month after the birth. The mother developed vaginal bleeding and would be diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Although she began chemotherapy she would die only 19 days later after developing encephalitis. To make matters worse the baby would be taken to hospital at only 11 months of age, after she developed a large swell in her right cheek. The child had a tumor in her jaw and cancer that spread to her lungs. After DNA tests from the mother and child researchers found the cancer in the child and mother shared the same mutated gene. Also, the cancer found in the baby had spread before birth.

However, before mothers start becoming alarmed, the chances of cancer being given to a developing fetus if extremely low. The cancer in the case of the Japanese mother and child was caused because of a mutation that allowed the cancer to spread to the baby undetected. So just remember that the chance is very remote at best.

Regardless it still does seem a little bit scary that something as devastating as cancer is able to spread like that. I’m looking for the day when cancer isn’t an issue, when “the cure” will be available, and many lives are saved all around the world.

Smoking Harmful For Your Pets


Yup, that’s right your pets suffer too. Smoking is not only harmful to people, but dangerous for poor little Buster, or whatever your pets name is. Secondhand smoke is known to be very dangerous to just about everyone, but many people don’t look at what it is doing to your animals.

Roughly 30 percent of pet owners live with at least one smoker. That translates into a lot of bad news for the animals. Every year an estimate 50,000 Americans die from secondhand smoke, and roughly 16 percent of American youth are exposed to secondhand smoke. Now imagine what will happen to the 30 percent of animals that have to deal with exposure to secondhand smoke.

Well, a number of studies have indicated some of the risks animals face from exposure to secondhand smoke. These animals may face respiratory problems, allergies, nasal and lung cancers in dogs, and lymphoma in cats.

Smoking is toxic and there really isn’t much else that can be said that hasn’t already been said. You should know the risks by now and if you value your bad habit over your health, everyone around you, and your animals, then go ahead keep smoking. However, if you ever need another reason to quit think about what you could be doing to those around you including your pets.

Women More at Risk from Smoking


By now, almost everyone should know the effects that smoking causes to a persons health. However, a recent study shows that smoking actually causes more harm to women. Women who smoke cigarettes were shown to develop lung disease earlier than males who smoke.

The study looked at 954 current and past smokers who had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The findings showed that women, who are younger than 60 with COPD had worse lung function than men their age. Additionally, women who are classified as light-smokers had developed more severe disease than males who are light-smokers.

If you are sitting there thinking that just because you only have a couple of cigarettes a day means you will be fine, you are very sadly mistaken. The low-exposure group in the study discovered that half of the women in the group with severe COPD.

Smoking causes many other negative effects to the body, like cancer, or increased risk of diabetes. Most of us know that smoking isn’t the best thing for our bodies, but at the same time trying to quit may be one of the hardest things to do for some people. One way that may be successful for many is to find a reason to quit.

Some people may know that they could get lung cancer, but may not consider quitting until they see, with their own eyes what lung cancer can do. These people need visual aids to aid them in kicking the habit. Other people need to see what their habit is doing to those around them. These people need to know what their smoking can do to their family, their pets.

For those that still have trouble quitting there are many products that can help, from gum to patches, even inhalers. Try and take a minute to think about what you are doing to those you care about.
