We all “know” by now that smoking cigarettes is horrible for you. It is on just about every pack of smokes that you obtain. It is on billboards all more than the spot. It is in our Television commercials. We are continuously bombarded from pretty much just about every supply that tobacco is negative for us… but wait… one thing does not make sense. When ephedrine was found to be negative for you, it was instantly created illegal, but cigarettes are nevertheless legal? What about the age limit? Why is it okay to smoke at eighteen but not at seventeen? Is our physique seriously prepared for tobacco by the time we’re eighteen, but not ahead of? One thing is absolutely quirky. As you continue to study you will take a component of our journey as we search for the truth about tobacco.
Our very first obstacle was locating a credible supply that mentioned something superior about tobacco. We spent a lot of the study time searching for such sources. We did uncover a couple of tobacco research that confirmed that tobacco is maybe the ideal alternative for stopping Parkinson’s illness. You study that ideal, tobacco not just reduces the probabilities of having Parkinson’s illness but eliminated the opportunity altogether. As our search continued we kept locating a lot more sources that supported the Parkinson’s illness study we identified earlier. Then we stumbled upon a study carried out by Harvard Clinical Study Institute that completely shocked us. The institute identified that tobacco is truly Superior for the heart! I know we had to reread the study various instances ourselves to lastly think it. Exactly where is the media coverage on that? I imply this is big news. As far as I knew, smoking is the trigger of heart illness, cancer, and half of the ailments that exist currently, but right here is a study from maybe the most credible clinic of all that finds that tobacco is truly superior? What is going on?
Right here is one thing that does not make sense. With all of the marketing campaigns that are in your face about how horrid tobacco is, the quantity of smokers has drastically decreased in the final twenty years. However the quantity of heart illness and cancer, which includes lung and mouth cancer, has elevated…why? Exactly where is the correlation right here? So we dig deeper. We uncover one more strange discovery in Sweden. Apparently kids whose parents smoke truly have Much less of a opportunity of having asthma then kids whose parents do not smoke? At this point I am utterly confused… what is going on? Why am I locating so a lot credible details that completely contradicts what I have normally been told and know to be correct about tobacco? Exactly where is the missing piece? I go by way of the research that help that smoking is negative for you and lastly get a clue. These anti-smoking research use subjects that smoke name brand cigarettes. I went back to the original research that I identified that had pro- tobacco finds and noticed that the pro- tobacco research use pure, freshly grown tobacco leaf. So my subsequent query was, “Are cigarettes negative since the name brand businesses add stuff to the tobacco?” That nevertheless does not clarify my earlier query, why do we have a lot more cancer and heart complications if the general populace is smoking significantly less?
I decided to begin with searching at what specifically do the primary two tobacco businesses use in their cigarettes and why? This search took me down one more rabbit trail. I attempted going to the organization web pages which yielded nothing at all valuable though they do state that they add components for flavor and preservation purposes. They do list a couple of of the most prevalent components applied by most cigarette businesses but state that they will not list all components due to brand secrets… properly that was a waste of time… I backtracked and attempted going by way of the university searches which lastly yielded what I wanted.
Apparently the stuff applied in the big brands is… I can not consider of a word terrible sufficient to describe it. Right here is only a PARTIAL list: arsenic which is applied in rat poison acetic acid which is applied in hair dye and photo developer acetone which is the primary ingredient in paint and fingernail polish remover ammonia which is a common household cleaner benzene which is applied in rubber cement cadmium which is identified in batteries and artists’ oil paint hydrazine which is applied in jet and rocket fuels formaldehyde which is applied to embalm dead bodies hydrogen cyanide which is the poison applied in gas chambers napthalenes which is applied in explosives, moth balls, and paint pigments nickel which is applied in the course of action of electroplating phenol which is applied in disinfectants and plastics polonium radiation, the dosage is equal to 3 hundred chest x-rays in one particular year toluene which is am embalmer’s glue. As I go down this list, I can not assistance but shudder… why? Why would any individual want to add these substances to a solution applied for human consumption? On leading of that, how in the globe does the FDA permit for such a solution to be released to the public? This is becoming frustrating as the a lot more I search the a lot more queries I have and the fewer credible sources come to be readily available… in truth I can not uncover any credible supply that can answer the why…
So exactly where do we go from right here? It appears rather apparent does not it? Pure tobacco leaf has these side effects: none (properly, except the smell) and has these added benefits: prevents breast cancer, prevents a particular type of skin cancer, reduces pressure, aids in weight loss, prevents Parkinson’s, slows down the progression of Alzheimer’s, and the list goes on. Name brand tobacco has these side effects: lung cancer, mouth cancer, pretty much just about every other cancer covers your lungs in a nasty tar that tends to make it tougher for you to breath, and the list goes on… Positive aspects? Not so a lot. I nevertheless can not say that tobacco is superior for you but maybe it does not have to kill you.
