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.

Cancer, A Winning Battle

Filed under: cancer,cancer treatment,death,heart disease,leukemia,lymphoma,Uncategorized — robertprice @ 10:46 am

Cancer is expected to overtake heart disease as the leading cause for death in 2010, but are these kind of statistics misleading? Well to put it simply, yes. The rate of deaths caused by cancer have been decreasing steadily for many years now. Due to the new steps in prevention, detection, and treatment, we have witnessed a constant decline for the past 30 or so years. Many of the younger groups have experienced the greatest drop in deaths related to cancer. So why is cancer going to overtake heart disease as the number 1 killer?

Although the statistics are right and cancer will be public enemy number 1, the statistics can be misleading in ways. Heart disease will cease to be the number 1 killer only because the rate of deaths by heart disease are lowering even faster than the decline of cancer deaths.

Many people in the general public are unaware of this because it is not heavily publicized. Most people just watch the news which has, for the most part, changed to report the most interesting events, not always the most important events. Due to this lack of broadcasting a great number of people still believe that we are losing the battle against cancer even though we’ve been gaining ground for more than 3 decades.

Here are some interesting statistics that every should see:

  • Since the early 1950s, age-specific cancer death rates have been falling steadily, starting first with children and young adults, and then eventually across all age groups.
  • Apart from lung cancer, much of this falling trend has taken place despite the fact that numbers of cases (incidence) has remained steady.
  • From the middle to the end of the 20th century, for people born between 1925 and 1934, then between 1935 and 1944, and so on, every ten years until 1995, there has been a lower risk of cancer death in each birth decade compared to the previous decade for nearly every age group.
  • The youngest age groups have experienced the steepest decline at 25.9 percent per decade, but even the oldest groups have experienced a 6.8 percent per decade decline.
