    With life becoming more hectic and stresses growing by the week, many people continue to smoke cigarettes as a stress reliever, knowing full well how dangerous the habit is. Many prefer drinking only at specific time in a day, but it’s not the case with smoking. People smoke at any times of a day. Cigarettes have thousands of toxic chemicals which pass in to all the internal organs of the body. Many researches confirmed that 50% percent of smokers are suffering with TB, heart attacks, and cancer. There are a large number of people and their loved ones seeking to rid themselves of this addiction, but quitting cigarettes is not an easy task. This article is helpful for those who want to quit smoking and also has a few facts about smoking and cigarette withdrawal.

    What is a Cigarette is made of?

    A three inch burning cigarette can consist of 4000 chemicals, which include poisonous toxins and chemicals. Some of the chemicals and additives in a cigarette include ace anisole, acetic acid, acetone, alfalfa extract, ally ionone, amberqeis tincture, ally hexanoate, dl-alanine, acetophenone, actinitic acid, amberqris tincture and many more  chemicals in a cigarette which are harmful to the human body.

    Cigarette Role on Health:

    Your relaxing inhaling of a cigarette can yield you a lifelong list of health issues which can stay with you your entire life and in the case of cancers caused by smoking, can shorten your life dramatically.

    Nicotine is one of the additives which reach every organ of body as soon as we take a single puff. It reaches the brain within ten seconds and starts affecting its organs more quickly. By this, the brain starts working effectively only when person smokes cigarette.

    Carbon monoxide gets combined with the red blood cells and decreases the ability of RBC to carry the maximum level of oxygen to all parts of body.

    Carcinogens, the cancer agents bind with the smoker’s body organs and also travel in the smoke which the smoker releases. This slowly damages cells growth related genes and results to abnormal growth of all kinds of genes.

    All types of addictive chemicals affect the body in different ways. High level of smoke affects the lungs and also heart.  The overall addiction to cigarettes make the organs work only when nicotine reaches them, with this the working ability degrades.

    Oxidative stress is the one which occurs due to the addiction of smoke, this mutates DNA which leads to lung conditions. As you age the oxidative stress improves then it leads to severe other cases like cancer, cardiovascular etc.

    Generally there are many body antioxidants which are meant for repairing the damaged cells. But in smokers the antioxidants level will be much less which leads to the lower resistance power and lower healing power.

    These are only few major health issues caused by smoking cigarettes, apart from this there are many minor health and hygiene related issues like sleep apnea, yellow teeth, black lips, wrinkles and more. As people become more aware of these cancers and health conditions caused by smoking the filthy habit will eventually become less popular than it is today. I personally used quit smoking patches to stop smoking cigarettes. Obviously it wasn’t easy, but it is possible and you feel much healthier when you do quit smoking!!

    defected eyes

    As the age grows, the mechanical system of human body degrades gradually and raises several health barriers. A man can be managing his life in absence of few organs, but few are keen important for the human survival, one of these are eyes. Eyes are the organs which make to view the beautiful world, alerts at danger point. But as the age grows, the vision power degrades and sometimes drags out to zero vision. At this moment people needs to depend on others. In order to resolve this problem in people who lost their vision due to some macular degeneration and retinitis pegmentos. With the keen role of biotechnology since from 20 years, a new concept came in to lime light which clears the problem of blind people, and the concept named as bionic eye. This electronic eye (Bionic) will be fixed in place of original damaged eye along with battery.

    Birth of Bionic Eye

    Many biotechnology companies did lots of research on retina system and found Bionic eye which can give the vision ability to the blind (partially). Right now there are 55% of people in the world who are facing visual defects in different levels of macular degeneration or retina pegmentosa. This both damages the cells which perceives light and transmits the light signals to the brain in the form of nerve impulses. Later they are interpreted as images. When these cells power ruins, the vision power degrades. For maintaining vision ability for the partially blind people, bionic eye has designed. This grabs all light and transmits as nerve impulses to brain and brain interprets those signals as images.

    Parts and procedure of bionic eye:

    A bionic eye mainly consists of five parts and they are Micro processing chip, video camera, radio transmitter, radio receiver and retinal implant.

    • Video Camera captures real time pictures and sends to the microchip. This video camera is made of two fine glasses. This captures the images as light and dark points. These will be processed by the video processor.
    • Micro processing chip processes the images in to electrical signals and sends these signals to the radio transmitter. Processor transmits the pixels in the radio signals and moves to radio transmitter.
    • Wireless radio transmitter transfers this signals to the nervous system and radio receiver perceives the signals and resends to retinal implant through hair thin implanted wire.
    • Retinal implant allows moving these signals to the brain by maintaining array of 60 electrodes each with 1mm. The electrodes gets excite as soon as they receive the signals from the radio receiver. These signals are sending to the brain by neural signal in the same way as the healthy eye sends signals to brain.

    This wonderful artificial eye is going to be released in very short span. Currently a 15 electrodes sight is under clinical process and ready to release as a commercial product for $30000.It is a second version with high resolution and improves vision ability. The research is still going for the third version which can give the best sight.

However, till now we have see n various kinds of techniques used for treating the drug addicts. I have learned recently that there is a different kind of approach in treating them, i.e. ‘A-R-T’ of recovery technique and importance of emotional success while treating these people. Chapman Rehab is one of the rare rehab centers who are following their unique approach in treating the patients as they are getting better results though it is little painful and lengthy for them. They are good at preparing their patients to deal with day-to-day emotional issues. Any person, irrespective of man/woman will be treated by them who suffer from Alcoholism, Chemical Addiction, Sexual Addiction, Eating Disorders or other Psychological Issues.

    A lot of tests will be conducted by some of the prominent medical experts to know the exact problems faced by the patients. As a result they will provide the best suited medicine and treatment to cure the patients. The three important things that a drug rehab will be acknowledged are accountability, responsibility, time. One thing that fascinated me about them is they have 30+ years experience medical professionals who have seen many kinds of drug addicts and they are well versed in treating them. Their drug rehab program will compromise of 12 step programs, anger management sessions, family education sessions, stress management sessions etc. Their clients will not only be treated for drug rehab but also make them to strengthen their spiritual power which will help them to recover quickly. All of their psychiatrists and/or physicians are ASAM certified which is rare to see. The other thing that is interesting about them is, they value their client’s privacy deeply and they keep all your information confidential. If you are planning to join a drug rehab center, then give a call to these guys and understand what is their approach and you will understand the difference between these people and rehab centers
