Smoking While Pregnant May Cause Criminal Children

Filed under: Smoking — Tags: , , , , — robertprice @ 11:27 pm

A recent study suggested that mothers, who puff a pack a day or more while pregnant, run a 30 percent higher risk of having children who become criminal offenders.

Both male and females are likely to gravitate toward crime, and face a higher risk of frequent arrests, if their mothers were heavy smokers during pregnancy.

A study led by Angela Parqadis of the Harvard School of Public Health, reviewed the health and criminal records of 4,000 American adults, who ranged from the ages of 33-40. Through this study, information was gathered about the smoking habits of the mother.

While this study is far from conclusive, the research shows a link between mothers who smoke during pregnancy and children behavioral problems.

Smoking is very difficult to quit cold turkey. Thankfully there are helpful medications available to aid in quitting smoking.

Soft Drinks Significantly Increase Risk of Developing Pancreatic Cancer

Soft drinks are already one of the biggest, or even possibly the biggest, drinks to avoid if you want to be healthy. However, most of the time, we talk about soft drinks as a major factor to weight gain. Recently, a study has discovered a link between soft drinks and pancreatic cancer.

The pancreas creates insulin, while scientists believe that high levels of insulin can increase the growth of cancerous cells. When we take in too much sugar, we drastically increase our insulin levels. Soft drinks are currently one of the main sources of sugar in the diet of most Americans.

The results of the study were astonishing. Those that drank two or more cups of pop every week had an 87 percent increase in the risk of developing pancreatic cancer. Many things like smoking, obesity, diabetes, and red meat intake were just a few of the factors taken into consideration.

Soft drinks just keep getting even worse for your body every time we learn something new. Cutting down on your pop consumption definitely couldn’t hurt. You’ll help lessen your chances of developing pancreatic cancer and you will become healthier in general. You might even be able to lose those few extra pounds.

How to Prevent Bad Breath

Bad breath can be very embarrassing and can happen to anyone. However, not everyone knows how to prevent it. The good news is, there are many, easy ways to help keep you breath fresh.

1. Brush your teeth – Make sure you brush your teeth at least twice, everyday. Make sure to brush your tongue as well. Along with brushing make sure to floss twice a day as pieces of food may get stuck in between your teeth and will cause bad breath. Also, using mouthwash after brushing and flossing is a very popular and effective way of preventing bad breath. This is probably the most common and easy way to prevent bad breath, but you must do it at least twice a day, every day.

2. Go to your checkups – Visiting your dentist on a fairly regular basis (every 6 months or so) is a great way to avoid bad breath. Your dentist may notice something that could be causing your bad breath, not to mention the cleaning you get at the dentist is always a great thing for your breath.


3. Make sure you fix any dental problems –
Some dental problems cause bad breath. Things like tooth decay, gum abscesses, and abscessed teeth must be treat. After treatment you may notice your breath has improved significantly.

4. Parsley – Try chewing parsley after eating a meal. Parsley is a known breath freshener and is a great, simple way to help keep your breath fresh after eating.

5. Quit Smoking – Smoking is a very large contributor to bad breath and even yellow teeth. You must quit smoking if you really want to get rid of your bad breath. Also, you may want to quit simply for other health reasons, smoking causes things like cancer.

6. Avoid foods that cause bad breath – Avoid certain foods that you know will cause bad breath, such as onions, alcohol, most foods that are spicy, and sadly coffee. These foods can contribute to your bad breath.

7. Drink water – Drinking water will keep you hydrated and will help prevent your mouth from becoming dry. Also, try breathing through your nose as much as possible as a dry mouth can be the main cause for most people’s bad breath.

8. Pop a mint – If you’re out somewhere and realize your breath may not be its freshest pop a mint. However, try to make sure you have sugarless mints. Mints that have sugar in them will cause to plaque to build up.

Hopefully some of the tips are useful and help you prevent your bad breath.

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.

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.
