Tobacco And Its Consequences

Tobacco And Its Consequences

Would you dare buy an edible product that had written on the package the following sentence:

"Beware, this product is harmful to your health"?

Would you pay for a product that definitely is bad for your health? It may seem foolish to do this, but the worst is that millions of people are right now consuming a product that causes thousands of illnesses.

The cigarette is a carrier of very dangerous toxic substances and one can say that they are so powerful poisons that cause lung cancer hopelessly in all smokers. Found in a cigarette, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide, nicotine, pyridine, the furfural, the collidine and acrolein.

When inhaled the cigarette smoke, the poisons are absorbed by the alveoli, through the blood going through the whole body of the smoker to achieve the finest cells of the nervous system. Nicotine has a constrictor action on blood vessels, thus preventing the irrigation of nervous tissue, while intoxicated brain cells. Blood pressure increases and heart rate became faster by the excitation of nerve ganglia of the heart. Acting on the respiratory centers and other nerve centers, will result in difficulty in breathing.

However, it is not only nicotine cigarette that acts damaging the nervous system. The furfural has an irritant action on that system, as the amount absorbed, depending on the number of cigarettes smoked, have caused irritation to the nerve centers, seizures and even respiratory paralysis by inhibiting the nervous control.

When a smoker feels anxiety, nausea, vomiting, cold sweat, saliva abundant, dizziness, headaches, ringing in the ears, which many attribute to nervousness, are actually caused by smoking. Although the smoker when smoking imagine that he'll calm down, this is just a self-suggestion. Not a single scientist in the world, no doctor or researcher disagrees with this view. Smoking produces melancholy, depression and even nervousness. Reduces the ability to reason and even memory.

The acrolein, present in smoke, causes degeneration of nerve cells, and acts similar to nicotine. Carbon monoxide poisons the nerve centers, and even damaging action throughout the circulatory system.

Tobacco and tobacco combustion products of cigarettes tend to paralyze the movements of the cilia that line the bronchial mucosa. Over time, the bronchial mucosa loses this protective mechanism, and its cells are exposed to direct aggression, suffering transformations that can reach the cancer or bronchial carcinoma.

In the past 10 years the number of people affected by lung cancer increased by 500%, which means a quantity of smokers very alarming. Here's a short list of risks that every smoker runs every time you smoke a cigarette apparently harmless.

  • Getting lung cancer
  • Getting bronchitis and emphysema
  • Getting laryngeal cancer
  • Getting mouth cancer
  • Getting esophageal cancer
  • Getting stomach ulcers


Researchers found the following poisonous substances in a single cigarette:

Phenol, Cresol, Paracrisol, Naphthol, Catechol, Resorcinol, Quinol, Quaiacol, Pyrene, Azulene, benzanthracene, pyridine, Furfural, Acrolein, Benzopirina, Chilly Willy, Lutilina, Menthol, Glycerin, ammonium cyanide, radioactive substances.

I think I could fill pages and pages talking about the harm caused by smoking, it still did not make sufficiently convincing to induce someone to stop smoking.

Usually a smoker hear from his doctor: "You need to stop smoking, if not it will worsen your respiratory and cardiac problems." But while giving this advice, the doctor keeps on his desk a package of cigarettes. How can induce someone to leave a harmful addiction, when you do not give an example? How parents, educators, can refer to young people the release of smoking, when they own living with a cigarette between their fingers? To talk without giving the example does not work.

The fear of death and disease are not enough strong arguments to reduce the urge to smoke. Once the individual has experienced a pleasant feeling, even if it is something poisonous, it will try other times.

No use arguing with a smoker, an alcoholic or drug addict. They will not hear the voice of reason, only the call of the velvety voice of addiction.

What force pushes a person to become addicted and even using all the force of will, can not break away from it? There is a satisfactory explanation for these facts? Oh yes, but they are not that will make you or anyone else abandoning a habit cultivated in years, months or days.
