Then there's the most known "side-effect" oral cancer. Using chew tobacco has a direct effect on oral health. Cancers that distress the lips, gums, cheeks, or palate are quite frequent ("Smokeless"). Developing heart disease as a result of smokeless tobacco is not as familiar to folks as oral cancer. The user is at a greater risk of heart problems when using snuff.
These pollutants have reduced water quality, contaminated soils, and damaged the Lake’s ecosystems. Pollution in wildlife has caused fish consumption to decrease, the spread of disease and viruses to increase, loss of fish and other wildlife stock. The closing of beaches and other recreational activities have been another direct result of the
Why? There is a myth that hookah smoking is safer than smoking cigarettes because the hookah smoke is filtered through water before it is inhaled. But recent studies have found that hookah smokers actually inhale more nicotine than do cigarette smokers because of the massive volume of smoke they inhale… According to a recent World Health Organization (WHO) advisory, a typical one-hour session of hookah smoking exposes the user to 100 to 200 times the volume of smoke inhaled from a single cigarette. Even after passing through the water, the tobacco smoke produced still contains high levels of toxic compounds, including carbon monoxide, heavy metals and cancer-causing chemicals (carcinogens). Hookahs are marketed as being a safe alternative to cigarettes.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Christopher Lanenga Kendra Tillis Mandy Duea Marna Nersesian Michael Eiden HCS 330 October 4, 2010 Sheela Hirao Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Although many have heard of the destruction smoking and nicotine can do, much only associate lung cancer with this deadly habit; however, a more common disease can develop. Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the most frequent form of lung disease, which typically develops after long-term exposure to irritants that damage the lungs and the airways. COPD breaks down into two forms, which are chronic bronchitis, a long-term cough with mucous, and emphysema, defined as a destruction of the lungs over time. In the United States, approximately
Smoking leads to a risk of developing mental and physical disease. This includes lung cancer, coronary heart disease and death through a stroke. Smoking also increases the chances of blood clotting. Nicotine also increases blood pressure and heart rate and thus the body's demand for oxygen, but carbon monoxide reduces the blood's ability to carry it. Obesity can be self-inflicted by the following: * Eating too many calories * Lack of physical exercise * Environmental factors * Cultural factors * Metabolism factors.
When I go to the beach I see how dirty the water is there. I hesitate to swim in it. Lake Erie is a beautiful lake when it is not so dirty, and we should try and preserve it. If we don’t it will be become so polluted that it will be considered dead, this happened in the 1960s due to all the factories dumping waste in to the Lake. It was literally a dumping ground and it even caught on fire a few times due to the toxic wastes.
One of the bigger causes is smoking. Simply do not smoke and this cause is not a worry. People who smoke are more likely to develop this cancer, in particular squamous cell carcinoma. Another avoidable cause is heavy drinking. If a person were to drink heavily and smoke, they would both work together as enablers and increase the risk even more.
Smoking is detrimental to people’s health and wellbeing causing physical, mental and social issues. Toxins in tobacco can travel anywhere in the body that blood flows causing damage to nearly every organ and system (Australia. Department of health and Ageing 2012). It has been scientifically proven that smokers have significantly increased risks of heart disease, numerous cancers, stroke, emphysema and respiratory diseases (Australia. Department of health and Ageing 2012).
B. There are patches in the ocean that are thick, like plastic soup, that have actually been given names. The largest of these has been dubbed The Great Pacific Garbage Patch and it is about the size of Texas. We throw away about 2.5million plastic bottles an hour. C. if not stopped over time the earth with slowly decay and changes in the environment will take place such as acid rain or water that’s become to toxic to drink plus animals will die from the trap like waste.
Smoking can lead to pollution of the air, which then affects other people breathing in that air, because the smoke is entering their lungs. “Thirty percent of Americans reportedly have moderate to severe periodontitis. It is caused by smoking, but it also can happen to people who have never smoked before,” (Sutton 7). The fact that people who do not even smoke and have periodontitis is outrageous, and needs to be stopped. Parents who smoke are setting bad examples for their children, and not only that, but the smoke coming from the cigarette the parent is smoking can reach the child’s lungs and give them extreme health risks, especially when it comes to its effect on the heart and blood vessels.
