How Secondhand Smoke Is DANGEROUS 2 Your HEALTH

What gets a person to want to smoke? Life, stress, kids, and boredom could be the reason. Or is it because it is cool? Well trying to be cool can kill you and anyone you smoke around. I do not really understand the whole nicotine addiction, but I do understand the harmful effects it has on you and others. Nicotine is the most serious form of drug used in the U.S. In scientific measures, smokers show all the physiological signs of an addict.

Secondhand Smoke is a toxic health hazard. After 10 years of research EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) classified secondhand smoke as a "Group A Carcinogen", meaning it causes cancer in humans, and ranks it among health hazards such as radon and asbestos. Secondhand smoke may be the cause of 53,000 deaths of nonsmokers, using blood test 9 out of 10 Americans are breathing in the smoke 2 times more than the amount predicted. Children are especially affected by cigarette smoke because there is no way for them to escape the smoke's damaging effects. There may be 12 million American children 5 and under who are smokers but have never picked up a cigarette. Children who are exposed may cough, wheeze and have a hard time recovering from colds.


Secondhand smoke can cause Asthma, Allergies and other respiratory or Viral infections such as Bronchitis and Pneumonia. Tobacco smoke is responsible for 307,000-522,000 cases of asthma in children under 15. Children with parents that smoke are twice likely to develop asthma, children who already have asthma it can get worse when exposed to smoking. 436,000 smoke-related bronchitis cases has been reported in children under 5 and there have been 115,000-190,000 reports of pneumonia. When exposed to the smoke the children can develop bad Ear Infections, Sinus Infections, Hearing Problems, Damaged Teeth, Stunted Growth, Birth Defects, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.) do to damaged lungs in infants. Between 284-360 children die from lung disease by secondhand smoke or fires.

Effects of Nicotine use: cloudy vision, cataracts, blindness, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, heart attack, lung cancer, emphysema, respiratory infections, colds lasting winter season, ulcers, stomach,throat, and bladder cancers. Also heartburn, urinary incontinence, lowered body temperature, more painful menstruation, earlier menopause, fertility problems, miscarriages/ stillbirths, backaches, slower healing, insomnia, fatter belly and love handles. Smoking and cigarette smoke can cause serious damage to the body, If you smoke be careful who you smoke around. If you have the willpower to quit and have family do it for them and most importantly do it for you.

CRAZY BUT TRUE: Woman Stuck In Her Bathroom For 2 Years!

Today I was sitting with my partner in my living room watching channel 32 news. They were talking about sad stories about unsolved crimes this is something that I'm use to. This world is so messed up it is ashame but, what I heard today I couldn't believe my ears. They did a report on a woman who was stuck in her bathroom for two years. Ok, I know you are like what, how can someone be stuck in their on bathroom for two years? The boyfriend was interviewed by the news team and he said that one day she went in the bathroom and didn't want to come out. She was afraid to come out, she was paranoid that demons were after her. Ok now, with all of this it sounds like she has a mental problem right?

So obviously the boyfriend has a mental problem as well, what kind of person would let their partner sit in the bathroom on the toilet for two years and not call for help. He tried consistently to get her out of the bathroom but, nothing worked and he finally called for help. When help arrived they had to use caution removing her from the toilet because the fat of her skin was stuck on the toilet. When they finally got her off and got her to the hospital they said she had suffered skin and nerve damage.

Now I just do not understand how could you even go hours even knowing that someone you love and live with is acting very strange and will not come out of the bathroom because she thinks that demons are after her and wait two years to get help. The authorities are thinking about pressing charges against her boyfriend and I think they should. It's crazy! I know but it is true the people in this world can be so oh! How can I put it, there's no way to put it - It's just crazy!
