'Cigarette smoking is injurious to health". This is a common line that you can see on even a cigarette packet. We all read them even smokers also read them but they ignore this warning. Why? Because they don't want to quit smoking. They have got habitual of cigarette. They also know that cigarette not only causes pollution but cause health hazards too. It is one of the main causes behind lung cancer. The smoke of a burning cigarette is really very dangerous. Not only the smoker is in danger but the other person who is standing nearby him is also at the same risk. This is called Passive Smoking.

 


 

What Tobacco consists?

  • Nicotine - this is not carcinogenic. However, it is highly addictive. Smokers find it very hard to quit because they are hooked on the nicotine. Nicotine is an extremely fast-acting drug. It reaches the brain within 15 seconds of being inhaled. If cigarettes and other tobacco products had no nicotine, the number of people who smoke every day would drop drastically. Without nicotine, the tobacco industry would collapse.

    Nicotine is used as a highly controlled insecticide. Exposure to sufficient amounts can lead to vomiting, seizures,depression of the CNS (central nervous system), and growth retardation. It can also undermine a fetus' proper development.

  • Carbon Monoxide - this is a poisonous gas. It has no smell or taste. The body finds it hard to differentiate carbon monoxide from oxygen and absorbs it into the bloodstream. Faulty boilers emit dangerous carbon monoxide, as do car exhausts.

    If there is enough carbon monoxide around you and you inhale it, you can go into a coma and die. Carbon monoxide decreases muscle and heart function, it causes fatigue, weakness, and dizziness. It is especially toxic for babies still in the womb, infants and individuals with heart or lung disease.

  • Tar - consists of several cancer-causing chemicals. When a smoker inhales cigarette smoke, 70% of the tar remains in the lungs. Try the handkerchief test. Fill the mouth with smoke, don't inhale, and blow the smoke through the handkerchief. There will be a sticky, brown stain on the cloth. Do this again, but this time inhale and the blow the smoke through the cloth, there will only be a very faint light brown stain.

Effects of Smoking on Body:

Heart : Smoking is the biggest risk factor for all heart diseases. It accelerates the process of fat deposition in the inner walls of arteries (atherosclerosis). It increases blood pressure and heart rate. Not only these, smoking increases tendency for the blood to clot. It reduces the capacity of a person to exercise. (Exercises always keep heart healthy).

Lungs : Smoking destroys small hairs present in upper parts of airways. In normal persons these hairs protect lungs from germs, dust and other harmful particles. When this natural cleaning system is damaged germs, dust, smoke and other harmful chemicals enter lungs causing infection, cough and lung cancer. The air sacs of lungs (alveoli) get permanently damaged causing difficulty in breathing.

Digestive system: Smoking causes heart burn ,delays healing of peptic ulcers, increases risk of crohn’s disease and formation of gall stones. It affects liver and increases chances of stomach cancer.

Legs: Smoking affects blood vessels of legs causing chronic pain in legs. This may further progress to cause gangrene of toes or feet.

Eyes: The sensitive blood vessels of eye are easily damaged by smoking. This causes blood shot appearance of eyes and itching. In heavy smokers it may lead to degeneration and loss of eyesight. Smokers are at an increased risk of cataracts.

Skin : Due to smoking the skin is deprived of oxygen and it loses its texture. An average smoker looks 5 years older than his healthy non smoking counterparts. The skin loses its healthy glow and takes on a yellowish-gray cast. The more cigarettes smoked, the worse skin will look. Wrinkles start appearing very quickly as smoking affects elastic tissues of skin.

Bones: It accelerates the process of osteoporosis

Cancer: Smoking causes cancer of lungs,

Reproductive system: Smoking reduces fertility in both men and women.

In women: Smoking imbalances estrogen hormone in women. It causes dryness of vagina and reduces blood flow to genital organs. Women who smoke can get diseases of fallopian tubes and their egg production is affected. Smoking can cause abortion. It accelerates aging process and can cause early menopause. The growth of baby retards when mother smokes in pregnancy. It affects the brain development of baby and reduces IQ. This happens even when mother is a passive smoker. The chances of miscarriage, premature birth and fetal death increase.

In men: Smoking impairs erections and can become a reason for erectile dysfunction. It also reduces sperm count and impairs sperm motility. But these are reversed after stopping smoking.

 

On the basis of current smoking patterns, approximately 1 billion people will be killed in the twenty-first century by smoking. Without widespread cessation, around 450 million people alive today will be killed by smoking in 2000–2050. At least half will die aged 30–69 years, losing decades of productive life, and those who smoke throughout adult life can expect to lose around 1 decade of life compared with non-smokers. Smoking-attributable cancer and total deaths have fallen sharply in high-income countries but will rise globally unless the current smokers, most of whom live in low- and middle-income countries, stop smoking before or during middle age. Tripling taxes on tobacco could rapidly increase cessation rates and deter smoking initiation. Higher taxes, regulations on smoking and information for consumers could avoid at least 115 million smoking deaths in the next few decades, including at least 25 million cancer deaths.

Coconut oil might just be the most versatile health food on the planet. Not only is it my favorite cooking oil, but coconut oil uses are numerous and can extend to being a form of natural medicine, be used for natural beauty treatments and so much more.The coconut tree is considered the “tree of life” in much of Southeast Asia, India, the Philippines, and other tropical locations. And today, there are over 1,500 studies proving the health benefits of coconut oil.

 

 

1. Cooking at high heat:  Coconut oil is great for cooking at a high heat because of its high smoke point. Many other oils like olive oil can oxidize when heated but because coconut oil is made up of healthy saturated fats it remains stable under high temperatures.

 

2. Buttering  your toast: For breakfast in the morning, try spreading coconut oil on your sprouted grain bread, instead of conventional butter. The slight coconut flavor, more pronounced in the unrefined coconut oils, lends a lovely aroma and taste to your toast.

 

3. Creamer for your coffee: Adding a spoonful of coconut oil to your coffee can give you an extra boost of energy and replace dairy creamer. If you put your hot coffee in a blender, with the coconut oil and your favorite natural sweetener, and blend, you will be amazed at the rich creamy flavor, without adding any dairy. In the Far East, many athletes blend their morning coffee with coconut oil and grass-fed ghee to increase performance and energy.

 

4. Moisturize your skin: By moisturizing, coconut oil delivers a refreshing, healing, burst of moisture that penetrates your skin and works to truly heal it (not just soak in and dry up!) It can feel oily at first, but that’s why it’s important to only use a little-it goes a long way. Give it a minute and it will dry beautifully. Use as you would regular lotion.

 

5. Conditioner: When the teeny tiny overlapping plates that make up our outer hair shaft get rumpled and out of whack, coconut oil is there to smooth those tiny little cells right back into place, and hold them there. You can use it on your entire scalp/head for deep conditioning, but you can generally just use it on your ends, where it’s the hardest for the body’s natural oils to reach, and where the most breakage occurs.

 

6. Weight loss:  Unlike most saturated fats, it’s mainly comprised of medium chain fatty acids, versus long chain fatty acids. This difference in molecular structure means that it doesn’t get packed away as fat as easily and instead is sent straight to the liver to be metabolized, giving you a boost in energy. This energy in turn makes exercising easier, and the exercise in turn helps you lose weight. Another major factor that it plays is as an appetite suppressant. Craving something you shouldn’t be? Have a tablespoon or 2 of coconut oil, and that sensation won’t last long!

 

 

7. Nourish split or dry ends. Trying to grow long and luscious locks? Protect the delicate ends of your hair with a regular treatment of coconut oil. Simply warm a small quantity of oil in the palms of your hands, then gently rub into the tips of the hair shaft. Leave in for at least several hours before rinsing, or wait until your next hair wash.

 

8. To remove eye makeup: Yes, coconut oil even works on waterproof mascara! Put a little of this organic coconut oil  on a cotton ball and gently sweep it over your eyes, paying attention to your under-eyes as well. The oil does a great job breaking down waxy, inky eye makeup, and leaves the delicate area hydrated, too. Once you're done, wash your face as usual.

 

9. Shave naturally:  Forget chemical shaving creams and say hello to coconut oil! Lather your legs with a generous coating of oil and slide over your razor. You’ll nourish your skin and achieve a silky close shave! 
 

10. Polish your furniture to a high shine: Many commercial furniture waxes and polishes contain artificial chemicals. We breathe these chemicals into our lungs (and therefore our bloodstream) or absorb them into our skin when we contact the furniture. Coconut oil can make a great natural alternative… Just be sure to patch test an area first!

Guys, you’ve heard the standard advice for protecting your swimmers: Don’t wear tight undies. Keep your laptop far from, well, your lap. Stop smoking ASAP. But there may be an even easier way to shield your sperm —  watch what you eat. “We’ve noticed that fertility has been decreasing over the past several decades. And guys want advice to improve upon matters,” said Dr. Ryan Terlecki, director of the Men’s Health Clinic for the Wake Forest University Department of Urology. “Most guys have never even heard that anything in their diet could impact sperm count.”

1. Too Much Processed Foods

There’s nothing more than the convenience of having canned food. After all, for a bachelor pad, these foods are a boon to avoid cooking and are basically no-fuss. But the BPA found in canned foods, which is a chemical is highly detrimental to your fertility health. BPA is known for lowering the quality of the sperms along with reducing their numbers. Unless the FDA does not certify a product, avoid eating it. And on the whole, opt for fresher food forms instead of canned options that are also high on the sugar content.

2. Aerated Drinks


In simple terms, the excessive amounts of sugar content in all of these soft drinks or so called aerated drinks leads to infertility. Basically too much of sugar leads to insulin resistance and this in turn is known to lower fertility rates. Also, there’s a powerful pesticide used in corn fields known as Atrazine, which is used in corn syrups that flavor these drinks. So consuming too much eventually leads to lower sperm count.

3. Soy Products

Yes soy has its share of high proteins and is ideal for women who are suffering from menopausal issues and boosts their fertility. But on the contrary, for men it is a bane. Having too much of soy-based products, be it milk, cheese, etc. can result in hormonal imbalances, which in turn could also have an affect on your sperm count. You can eat the same in moderate amounts but don’t go overboard on exclusive soy diets.

4. Fatty Foods

There’s something about men and beer and red meat. Apart from a potbelly, this is a disastrous combination for your fertility levels. The high levels of fatty acids in the red meat is known to create health issues for men along with affecting their sperm quality too. On this note, even trans fatty acids are known to hinder with spermatogenesis. High levels of TFA in men are known to reduce your sperm quality drastically.

5 Caffeine

An energy booster that is known to help your perk up on days when you are down sadly is a known contributor to reduce your sperm count too. Basically too much of the caffeine from your coffee or tea can make the sperms go a little jumpy. Moderate amount of the same will not have any adverse effect though. So try to stick to not more than 2-3 cups a day.

6. Alcohol

Again, be it beer, whisky, wine or any other kind of alcohol, all of them come with their share of some pros and cons. And here the con is that everyday alcohol consumption is known to lower the production of testosterone in the body. Again, moderation is the key here so ensure that you don’t overdo the drinking, especially in combination with fatty foods.

7. GMO foods

GMO is basically genetically modified organisms that are used in high amounts for all kinds of vegetables, fruits, cereal, etc. production. But it is also a highly contributory factor to reduce your sperm count. Too much of GMO based foods reduce sperm count drastically. So try to eat more of organic food variations where possible.
