Secondhand smoke is bad news. It makes you fat and increases your risk of diabetes. Being fat puts you at greater risk for many types of cancer. "The second-hand smoke caused a high rise in blood levels of a fat called ceramide that prevents cells from responding to insulin to increase risk for diabetes (Lipids Health Dis, 2013 Jul 8;12:98). Insulin lowers blood sugar by driving sugar from the bloodstream into cells. When cells cannot respond to insulin, blood sugar levels rise. The pancreas responds by producing higher levels of insulin. High levels of insulin specifically make you fat by making you hungry so you eat more, converting the extra sugar to fat, and causing the fat to be stored in all the cells in your body." http://drmirkin.com/morehealth/second-hand-smoke-may-be-fattening.html http://www.cancer.net/navigating-cancer-care/prevention-and-healthy-living/obesity-and-cancer/obesity-weight-and-cancer-risk I'm gonna make a month's worth of vids., talking about how to reduce the chances that you'll get cancer, including prostate cancer.

Scientists at the University of California, Riverside have found that thirdhand smoke (THS) exposure causes insulin resistance, a precursor to type 2 diabetes. THS results when exhaled smoke gets on surfaces – clothing, hair, homes and cars. Produced by UCR's Office of Strategic Communications.

By Cameron | Ready to "wear it out loud?” Merch store open, SHOP NOW: http://bit.ly/storybooth-merch | Subscribe: http://bit.ly/sub2storybooth | Record your story @ https://storybooth.com or our iPhone app for a chance to get animated. Comment, like, share this story. Cameron was super excited to turn 18. After all, that was the age where there could be no doubt that he was an adult, no longer a kid. He could vote. He could serve in the armed forces, and he could do all sorts of things that, when he was younger, only the grown-ups could do, and a lot of it didn't real interest him. But, four months after his 18th Birthday, a week before he graduated from high school, he felt the urge to do something nice for himself, to buy himself a late birthday present and something that was like a congratulations for moving onto the next chapter of his life as an adult now! And what was that gift he bought himself, to symbolize his freedom and his new life as a grown-up? A pack of cigarettes. Of course, Cameron knew how bad smoking was for him, knew about the awful consequences - addiction, wasted money, sickness, cancer - but, he was a curious and rebellious teenager, testing his freedom, he decided he would try smoking just once, for the experience. He promised himself that he wouldn't make a habit of it, wouldn't become a smoker. So, he snuck out of his house one night while his family was sleeping, and walked to the nearest gas station that sold cigarettes. He was really nervous about buying them, afraid he would look and sound stupid, and, he did have to show his ID to the clerk - but, finally, he had done it. He had bought his first pack of cigarettes. He couldn't wait to try one - got outside, took on out, lit it up and pulled some smoke into his mouth. It tasted totally bitter and harsh and just plain nasty. Finally, he decided to try to inhale - he pulled the smoke deep into his lungs - and suddenly, his lungs felt like they were collapsing. He was coughing, couldn't stop, and felt like he couldn't breathe. He literally thought he was about to pass out and die. He threw the cigarette on the ground and stomped it out! But, for some reason, he kept the pack of cigarettes with him. And, a few weeks later, he tried smoking again and this time he didn't cough, his lungs didn't hurt as much, and there he was, a little bit excited about it - smoking. He started smoking and before he knew it, had become a smoker. And not a vape user, a vaper, , not vaping or jeweling either, straight up packs of cigs. Cameron thought it would just be a casual habit of his, that he might smoke a cigarette only every once in awhile, but he was wrong. He kept buying packs of cigarettes, smoking them all, quickly, and buying more for the next full year! He made numerous attempts to quit smoking, but he just couldn't - he was feeling unhealthy, addicted, and was starting to run low on money - all because of a few bad choices. The reality is that he simply could not stop smoking. He was desperate to quit smoking but it was so incredibly difficult. Cameron has found that nicotine is one of the hardest addictions to break, and, the best way to do it is to never get started in the first place. He learned anti smoking opinions from first hand experience with smoking; tobacco, cancer, addiction, nicotine, first hand smoke, second hand smoke, vaporizer, the high cost of cigarettes. Peer pressure can be a very healthy thing, take it directly from this story. Smoking is expensive in so many ways. He started smoking, and now he feels like he is in a prison that he created.

RIVERSIDE, CALIFORNIA — Most people are familiar with the ill effects of first and second hand smoking on the body, but a new study has found that even third-hand exposure to tobacco smoke poses a health risk. According to a study published in Clinical Science, third-hand smoke comes from exhaled cigarette residue getting absorbed into surfaces, causing toxins to accumulate in like clothing, curtains, carpets, and furniture. Bystanders can be exposed to the toxins through skin absorption, with children especially vulnerable since they are in close contact with household surfaces. Researchers found that mice exposed to sections of fabric imbued with third-hand smoke were found to have liver damage after just one month. They suffered further molecular damage to both the liver and brain after two to six months. The exposure also increased insulin resistance in the mice, and upped the release of the stress hormone epinephrine, making them prone to type-2 diabetes and immune fatigue. Though the research was conducted on animals, it nevertheless draws attention to the dangers of cigarette smoke even on a third-hand basis. Further studies should investigate the effects on humans, and possibly determine what effect long-term exposure will have on the body. ------------------------------------------------------------- Go to https://www.patreon.com/tomonews and become a Patron now TomoNews is now on Patreon and we've got some cool perks for our hardcore fans.

Imagine this alternative could help millions of people quit smoking and came with only a fraction of the harmful chemicals that cigarettes do. Well, you don’t have to imagine it. It exists. E-cigarettes are the most innovative and promising smoking-cessation product yet invented. So, public health officials and anti-tobacco activists are all in favor of this life-saving innovation, right? Actually, they’re almost all totally against it. Why? Because, incredibly, they make no substantial distinction between e-cigarettes and real cigarettes -- even though they are completely different products. To begin with, e-cigarettes aren’t cigarettes. They contain no tobacco. Instead, a liquid containing nicotine derived from tobacco leaves is vaporized, and users of e-cigarettes inhale that vapor. Vapor, mind-you – not smoke. This is significant because the real harm from tobacco comes from the combustion process, which releases hundreds of toxic compounds known as tar. Since e-cigarettes have no tobacco and no combustion, they release no tar. This makes them, according to Britain’s Department of Health, at least 95% less harmful than tobacco cigarettes. E-cigarettes do contain nicotine, an addictive drug. However, there is little evidence that nicotine alone is bad for you, making it similar to, say, caffeine--a drug used every day by millions of people. Brad Rodu, an oral cancer specialist at the University of Louisville, put it this way: “I love coffee, and I’m sure I could get caffeine if I smoked my coffee beans…but I would be paying a much different price in overall health [if I did].” In other words, when it comes to addictive substances like caffeine or nicotine, it isn’t the addictive substance that’s harmful; it’s how it’s delivered. As South African psychiatrist Mike Russell said about cigarettes: “[People] smoke for [the] nicotine, but they die from the tar.” And again, there’s no tar in e-cigarettes. Does this all mean e-cigarettes are completely safe? Of course not. Nothing is completely safe. E-cigarettes are a relatively new innovation so more research is needed, especially on long-term effects. There’s also a place for sensible regulation to ensure consumer safety. But unlike normal everyday products, any potential risk posed by e-cigarettes is far outweighed by a real – not potential – good: saving lives by providing the nicotine that smokers enjoy without delivering the deadly toxins that can kill them. Many former smokers have successfully used e-cigarettes to help them kick their nicotine addiction altogether. A recent study in an Oxford Journal peer-reviewed publication, Nicotine and Tobacco Research, said that e-cigarettes could reduce smoking-related deaths by 21 percent. That’s thousands of lives every year. For the complete script, visit https://www.prageru.com/videos/whats-wrong-e-cigarettes

One Option for Stress Support: Adrenal & Cortisol Relief: http://bit.ly/Adrenal-Cortisol-Relief... Take Dr. Berg's Advanced Evaluation Quiz: http://bit.ly/EvalQuiz Your report will then be sent via email analyzing 104 potential symptoms, giving you a much deeper insight into the cause-effect relationship of your body issues. It's free and very enlightening. Dr. Berg talks about why people smoke cigarettes. Why would any smoke due to: 1. 4000 chemicals 2. 42 carcinogens (things that cause cancer) 3. Carbon monoxide 4. Formaldehyde 5. Hygrogen cyanide 6. Arsinic 7. DDT 8. Cadmium 9. Benzene 10. Fungicides The best way to stop smoking is to gradually replace nicotine with other natural things that mimic nicotine or create a parasympathetic effects (calming or stress reducing). Nicotine triggers endorphins and dopamine giving you a sensation of pleasure, relaxation and calmness. The nicotine is highly addictive in cigarettes and does not cause cancer, however, nicotine comes with a package - lots of bad stuff. The reason why people smoke is for relaxation, sharp mental effects, alertness and calmness. This is due to nicotine effect on the parasympathetic nervous system. This is the system that opposes the sympathetic nervous system. This system is called "rest and digest". However, you can instead use things like: 1. Adaptogens 2. Increase your potassium 3. Black tea 4. Vitamin B1 5. Walking As you transition off of nicotine, these actions can help.

Eating broccoli could reverse the damage that diabetes inflicts on heart blood vessels. The key is most likely a compound in the vegetable called sulforaphane. If diabetes is not controlled, it can damage blood vessels, including those leading to the brain and hear. Diabetes occurs in approximately five percent of Europeans. It is divided into 1 diabetes (it is necessary to take insulin) and diabetes 2 (not taken insulin, but is conducted diet). People with diabetes 1 shall not undertake anything on their own before consulting with a specialist. Before this natural treatment against diabetes, make 7 days liver cleanse diet, then apply a method that is discovered by American explorer Dr. Anderson. It takes 21 days every morning to boil a liter of water 300-500 grams of broccoli for five minutes. Half of the liquid drink it on an empty stomach, and the other half in the evening. Broccoli, and strewn teaspoon of cinnamon, is recommended for lunch. As in the process occurring compounds glycolysis, there comes significant reductions of blood sugar. In our traditional medicine, there are even 53 plants which reduces sugar in the blood, the most popular are dubcac (lat. Teucrium chaemedrys), “hair” maize (lat. Zea mays) and dried pods of beans.

The dangers of smoking are real for smokers and people around them. In fact, a smoker doesn't even have to be lighting up to put those in the vicinity at risk. Secondhand smoke is smoke you inhale from someone else's cigarette. Thirdhand smoke is toxic residue that settles on surfaces, and if you touch it, you can absorb it. Mayo Clinic experts say thirdhand smoke is particularly bad for children. In this Mayo Clinic minute, reporter Vivien Williams talks to Dr. Stephen Kopecky about thirdhand smoke.

Is smoking a risk factor for autoimmune diseases? The immune system is the body’s way of protecting itself from infection and disease. Smoking compromises the immune system, making smokers more likely to have respiratory infections. Smoking also causes several autoimmune diseases, including Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. It may also play a role in periodic flare-ups of signs and symptoms of autoimmune diseases. Smoking doubles your risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis. Smoking has recently been linked to type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes. Smokers are 30% to 40% more likely to develop type 2 diabetes than nonsmokers. Additionally, the more cigarettes an individual smokes, the higher the risk for diabetes.

Recent studies show a direct relationship between tobacco use and decreased bone density. Smoking is one of many factors—including weight, alcohol consumption, and activity level—that increase your risk for osteoporosis, a condition in which bones weaken and become more likely to fracture. Significant bone loss has been found in older women and men who smoke. Quitting smoking appears to reduce the risk for low bone mass and fractures. However, it may take several years to lower a former smoker’s risk. In addition, smoking from an early age puts women at even higher risk for osteoporosis. Smoking lowers the level of the hormone estrogen in your body, which can cause you to go through menopause earlier, boosting your risk for osteoporosis. Back to top How does smoking affect my heart and blood vessels? The chemicals in tobacco smoke harm your blood cells and damage the function of your heart. This damage increases your risk for: Atherosclerosis, a disease in which a waxy substance called plaque builds up in your arteries Aneurysms, which are bulging blood vessels that can burst and cause death Cardiovascular disease (CVD), which includes: Coronary heart disease (CHD), narrow or blocked arteries around the heart Heart attack and damage to your arteries Heart-related chest pain High blood pressure Coronary Heart disease, where platelets—components in the blood—stick together along with proteins for form clots which can then get stuck in the plaque in the walls of arteries and cause heart attacks Peripheral arterial disease (PAD), a condition in which plaque builds up in the arteries that carry blood to the head, organs, and limbs Stroke, which is sudden death of brain cells caused by blood clots or bleeding Breathing tobacco smoke can even change your blood chemistry and damage your blood vessels. As you inhale smoke, cells that line your body’s blood vessels react to its chemicals. Your heart rate and blood pressure go up and your blood vessels thicken and narrow.

How does the use of tobacco affect your ability to get an affordable rate for life insurance? Byron Udell, Founder and CEO of AccuQuote provide some helpful information on this issue. If you smoke and want the best life insurance quote, call us today at 1-877-794-9817, or go to https://www.accuquote.com/get-a-quote/ Hi. I’m Byron Udell, Founder and CEO of AccuQuote. Today I’d like to talk about tobacco. We all know by now that smoking is bad for your health. It increases your odds of getting lung cancer, emphysema and heart disease. Still, some people continue to smoke. There’s an old joke: “Quitting smoking is easy. I’ve done it thousands of times.” Seriously, most people can’t quit smoking because the highly addictive nature of nicotine. And some continue to smoke because, well, they’re just not convinced that it’s actually harmful. We’ve all heard somebody say something like, “My Uncle Gus smoked all his life and he lived to be 105!” Well, good for Uncle Gus, but smoking statistically doesn’t produce many “success stories.” According to the American Lung Association, more than 480,000 Americans die each year due from first-hand and second-hand smoke. And smoking is not cheap. A pack of cigarettes in some states is over 10 dollars! But the real “sticker shock” for smokers comes when they try to get life insurance. Rates for smokers are significantly higher than for non-smokers. And even if you quit, some insurance companies require you to be smoke-free for at least one year before you can qualify for better rates. There is some good news. If you only occasionally smoke a cigar or chew nicotine gum, some life insurance companies won’t penalize you for that. So you can puff on a celebratory stogie a few times a year and probably get an affordable rate. The bottom line is, if you want the best life insurance rates – don’t smoke. But if you do smoke, don’t lie about it to the insurance company you’re applying to. Not only is it illegal to do so, but it’s just not very smart. Most insurance companies require a physical exam before issuing a policy, which typically includes blood and urine tests. Nicotine is easily detected in the blood. So lying about your tobacco use is just plain stupid. Because if you’re caught, the insurance company can cancel your policy for cause and leave you out in the cold. If you’d like more information or have any questions, call us directly at the number at the bottom of your screen or go to AccuQuote.com. We’d love the opportunity to earn your business, and it would be our privilege to work with you. And thanks for listening.

Title: 7 Best Foods For Smokers Description: Smoking increases your risk of cancer, heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, eye disorders such as cataracts, rheumatoid arthritis, dental problems and stroke, says the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That's because the substances in cigarettes can damage your organs and increase your body's level of free radicals, compounds that harm DNA and cellular tissue. There aren't any foods that can prevent or undo the effects of smoking, but research indicates that some are better than others for smokers. Here are the 7 best foods every smoker should be eating. 1)Cruciferous Vegetables: Cruciferous vegetables are the only natural dietary source of isothiocyanates compounds that, in laboratory studies, prevent the development, growth and spread of cancer cells. They're also rich in a variety of other antioxidants that can benefit smokers, including vitamin C, vitamin E and carotenoids like beta carotene. Kale, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, cauliflower, cabbage, watercress, arugula, radishes and bok choy all belong in the cruciferous vegetable family. 2)Dairy products: Smokers have reported that drinking milk made cigarettes taste worse; most smokers said that it gave their cigarettes a bitter aftertaste. When facing a craving, consuming milk and other dairy products that make cigarettes taste bad might help deter smokers from cigarettes. 3)Yellow Foods: Yeloow foods like Pumpkin,Peaches,Oranges help prevent deficiency of Vitamin A in your body. Thus these foods are useful for smokers. 4)Citrus Fruits: The Vitamin C present in Citrus Fruits helps neutralize the free radicals that smoking creates in your body. 5)Seeds,Nuts And Cereals: These contains amino acids which is important to keep your lungs healthy. 6)Berries: Berries can fight the flu and various other viruses that can affect the lungs. 7)Onions: Onions have been used for many centuries for their various medicinal properties. Recent research has shown that these powerful vegetables can help with a whole host of conditions that includes coughs, angina, bacterial infections, and even the common cold.

If you use Cigarette indoor, the smoke seeps into everything in the room, including clothing, furniture, and rugs. Even this third-hand smoke can be harmful to our health. People should be aware that hotel rooms, cars, and homes that were occupied by smokers are very likely to be contaminated with third-hand smoke. Third-hand smoke toxins can stay on surfaces for years and linger in the hair, skin, and clothing of smokers. They also had increased cortisol levels, a weakened immune system, and increased insulin resistance resulting in the development of type 2 diabetes. The toxins are absorbed through our skin and through breathing without knowing we are exposed ourselves to harm. Third-hand smoke exposure is a stealth toxin and a silent killer. Residual tobacco smoke mixes with dust, settles on surfaces and even penetrates porous material in panelling and drywall.

Tingling in the hands and feet seems trivial but it may be an important warning symptom of peripheral neuropathy and diabetes. http://www.theveincarecentre.co.uk/contact Tingling or numbness affecting your feet may seem like a trivial symptom of no real importance. However, in this video, I will explain why this symptom may be very important with regard to your health in general and why you should not ignore it. Tingling hands, feet, or both is an extremely common and bothersome symptom. Such tingling can sometimes be entirely innocent and temporary. For example, it could result from pressure on nerves when your arm is bent under your head as you fall asleep. Or it could be from pressure on nerves when you cross your legs too long. In either case, the "pins and needles" effect -- which is usually painless -- is soon relieved by removing the pressure that caused it. In many cases, however, tingling in the hands, feet, or both can be severe, occurring at irregular times or continuously day and night. It also can accompany other symptoms. such as pain, itching, numbness, and muscle wasting. In such cases, tingling may be a sign of nerve damage. Such nerve damage is known by doctors as peripheral neuropathy because it affects nerves distant from the brain and spinal cord, often in the hands and feet. There are more than 100 different types of peripheral neuropathy. Over time, peripheral neuropathy can worsen, resulting in decreased mobility and even disability. Diabetes is one of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy, accounting for about a third of cases. In diabetic neuropathy, tingling and other symptoms often first develop in both feet and go up the legs, followed by tingling and other symptoms that affect both hands and go up the arms. About two-thirds of people with diabetes have mild to severe forms of nerve damage. In many cases, these symptoms are the first signs of diabetes. So here is the main point I want to make, tingling and numbness in the feet may be the first signs that you have a serious peripheral neuropathy and that you may have diabetes. Diabetes puts you at risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney failure, blindness and a long list of other serious complications. So that tingling you have could be your only warning sign of a serious complication developing elsewhere in your body. Don’t ignore this symptom and please get a check up.

Just quit smoking. Step 1: Ready yourself Ready yourself. Make a particular day your quit day. Don’t deviate from this plan. Tip Psych yourself up by making a list of all the reasons to quit—you’ll be healthier, develop fewer wrinkles, have nicer breath, save money, and you won’t be subjecting people to second-hand smoke. Step 2: Write down smoking triggers Write down your smoking triggers. When you drink? After dinner? With coffee? Knowing what prompts you to smoke can help you quit. Step 3: List health risks List all the health risks associated with smoking—such as stroke, heart disease, several types of cancer, ulcers, diabetes, eye diseases, and osteoporosis. Tip Remind yourself that there are more than 4,000 chemicals in cigarettes, some of which are used in insect and rat poisons! Step 4: Tell friends & family Tell your friends and family about your decision. They can encourage you, plus you’re less likely to back out if others know your goal. Step 5: Call stop smoking line Call your state’s stop smoking line for free advice, nicotine substitutes, and a plan. Step 6: Buy gum or lollipops Buy lots of gum or lollipops.

Always seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, is a PROGRESSIVE inflammatory lung disease characterized by INCREASING breathing difficulty. Other symptoms include cough, most commonly with mucus, chest tightness and wheezing. COPD develops as a result of LONG-TERM exposure to irritants such as smoke, chemical fumes or dusts, and may go UNNOTICED for years. Most people show symptoms after the age of 40 when the disease is already in its advanced stage. The lungs consist of millions of air tubes or airways, called bronchi and bronchioles, which bring air in and out of the body. These airways end with tiny air sacs - the alveoli - where the gas exchange process takes place. REPEATED inhalation of irritants results in a CHRONIC inflammatory response which brings in a large amount of defensive cells along with inflammatory chemicals from the immune system. Inflammation of the airways causes them to thicken and produce mucus, NARROWING the air passage – this is known as CHRONIC BRONCHITIS. Inflammatory chemicals also dissolve alveolar walls, resulting in DESTRUCTION of the air sacs – this is EMPHYSEMA. COPD is, basically, a COMBINATION of these two conditions. Tobacco smoking is accountable for about 90% of COPD cases. These include current, former smokers and people frequently exposed to second-hand smoke. Extended contact with harmful chemicals such as fumes from burning fuel or dusts, at home or workplace, may also cause COPD. Genetics has been implicated in a small number of cases. Notably, a condition known as alpha-1 antitrypsin deficiency, or AAT deficiency, has been shown to increase risks for COPD and other lung diseases. AAT protein protects the lungs from damaging effects of enzymes released during inflammation. Low levels of AAT make lung tissues more vulnerable to destruction when inflamed. While people with AAT deficiency may develop COPD even WITHOUT smoking or exposure to harmful irritants, AAT deficient smokers are at MUCH greater risks. COPD is diagnosed based on symptoms, history of exposure to irritants and lung function tests. The major test for COPD is SPIROMETRY, in which the patient is asked to blow into a tube connected to a machine – a spirometer. Spirometry evaluates pulmonary functions by measuring the volume and the speed of air flow during inhalation and exhalation. There is no cure for COPD but treatments can relieve symptoms, prevent complications and slow down progression of the disease. The first and most essential step to treatment is to stop smoking and/or improve air quality at home and workplace. These are also the most effective measures in preventing the disease. Other treatments include: -Medication: bronchodilators are used to widen the airways; steroids to relieve inflammation. -Vaccination against flu and pneumococcal pneumonia: this is to prevent serious complications COPD patients may have with these respiratory infections. -Supplemental oxygen: this can improve quality of life provided that the patient no longer smokes. -Breathing exercises and other therapies as part of a pulmonary rehabilitation program. -Finally, surgery may be performed for severe cases when other methods fail. Surgical procedures include bullectomy, lung volume reduction surgery, where damaged parts of the lung are removed; and lung transplant, where the entire diseased lung is replaced with a healthy lung from a deceased donor.

Top 10 Interesting Facts About Smoking Cigarettes 1. Cigarette Smoking Shortens a Decade of Your Life! According to new research, men lose about 12 years of life expectancy if they smoke; while women lose 11 years. The study also says that kicking the habit by age 40 reduces the excess risk of death by about 90%. 2. The Minimum Legal Age for Smoking! In the United States, according to the State laws, a minimum age of legal access (MLA) for most tobacco products is 18 years. So, all you minors out there, beware of smoking. 3. You Don’t Smoke? You Need to Worry! Don’t be too happy that you are at no risk if you don’t smoke. Just being exposed to second-hand smoke has caused more than 2,500,000 deaths in the United States since 1964. 4. Hitler vs Smoking! Surprisingly, despite Hitler’s apathy for human life, he became the first person in history to put together a vigorous anti-smoking campaign during the 1930’s and 40’s. Nazi scientists were the first to discover that smoking causes lung cancer. 5. Meet the First Smoker! The first European to ever learn smoking- Rodrigo De Jerez was arrested back home when he tried to introduce the habit to his hometown. The reason was that the people thought a devil possessed him. 6. Nixon vs. Smoking Ban! In 1970, despite being an avid smoker, Richard Nixon (the then US President) signed legislation officially banning cigarette ads on television and radio. You can consider it a classic case of irony that the legislation was signed by a person who actually smoked as many as eight bowls a day. 7. Full of Carcinogenic Chemicals! A stick of cigarette contains more than 69 carcinogenic chemical compounds such as- Benzene, Carbon Monoxide, Arsenic, Hydrogen Cyanide, Polonium 210, etc. Some companies also add Urea to cigarettes. Urea is also found in human urine- that’s pee! 8. Diabetic? Beware of Smoking! While smoking deteriorates your lungs it also leads to diabetes as in American-blend cigarettes, sugars, such as sucrose or invert sugar, have been used as tobacco ingredients. 9. Here’s A Good News for Smokers! Although negative impacts of cigarette smoking on our health have been well documented, there are shreds of evidence that smokers have a lower incidence of some neurodegenerative and inflammatory diseases. 10. A Way Towards the Adulthood! It’s very common for teens to take up this habit of smoking even before reaching the legal age of purchasing cigarettes as they see it as a way towards the adulthood. According to reports, each day in the United States, more than 3,200 youth aged 18 years or younger smoke their first cigarette.
