  • Chemicals in a Cigarette
    By Health Blog on May 12, 2011 | 2 Comments2 Comments  Comments

    Need some more reasons to quit smoking? Apart from becoming very uncool and socially frowned upon in more and more cultures and societies every year, cigarettes are filled with all kinds of horrible poisons, chemicals and additives!

    A few of the more dangerous chemicals in cigarettes include;

    • Arsenic
    • Vinyl chloride
    • Benzene
    • Beryllium
    • Cadmium
    • Ethylene oxide
    • 1,3–Butadiene
    • Chromium
    • Nickel
    • Polonium-210

    Did you know the American tobacco companies have a list of 599 additives used to make cigarettes? The big five US cigarette companies (American Tobacco Company, Brown and Williamson, Liggett Group, Inc., Philip Morris Inc. and R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company) had the list approved by the United States Department of Health and Human Services in 1994. The chemicals used in cigarettes were never tested while burning, and if you listened in science classes at school you would know that burning many of these nasty additives changes their chemical properties, which creates a chemical compound list of 4000 when you burn a cigarette. If this list doesn’t make you think about quitting smoking I don’t know what will.

  • Five Steps to Stave Off the Age Signs
    By Health Blog on March 5, 2010 | No Comments  Comments
    Wrinkle

    wrinkle

    In the race of life, every one is running to gain the best of every thing. In that beauty and glow in face is one. But how long this remains with us is the major issue. To resolve this issue, one industry is researched vigorously and going to release the products to avoid the symptoms and effects old age. It indirectly means the age wrinkles are going to be reduced. Many researches have proven that it’s in the hands of every individual. This article concentrates on the things which an individual can do easily for retaining the clear and soft skin as in younger age.
    No one will be concern of face when it is well in all aspects. Once the signs resembles, it worries the person. This situation is quite common in the people those exceeds 30 years. The most effective signs in this are wrinkles. Wrinkles make the person to look older than what he/she is. People spend thousands of dollars to retain his younger face. But only outer treatments are not so effective according to the several researches. A human positive result and long span results are possible only with internal effect. This can be possible with few methods and techniques.
    Quit Smoke heads to Younger Age:
    Smoking is the root cause of wrinkles and also for other health issues. The smoke is the one which causes biochemical reactions on skin and spoils the collagen and elastic found in the dermal layers. The blood cells production will also get reduced, as the smoking degrades the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to cells. As a result sagging, wrinkles, darken lips will generate.


    Combat Aging by Healthy Food:

    Any body dealing with oxygen will generate free radicals of no electrons. When this gets attached to mitochondrial cell, it leads to the death of the cell. If this continues, the strength of cells will be lost and sagging of skin takes place. To avoid the flood of free radicals from body, the role of diet is quite essential. Food of antioxidants like Vitamin C, Vitamin E can neutralize or stabilize these free radicals and avoids the side effects of body and skin.
    Stop Photo aging:

    Sun is the treasure of Vitamin A and also UV. Vitamin A acts as neurotransmitter and lack of this tends to depression. And UV affects the human skin initially and triggers to loss of elasticity of skin and progressively turns to photo aging (damaging the collagen of skin). Avoiding sun rays completely also not good for body, as it has negative impact on body either in lower or in higher quantity.

    What we have to do is that we have to restrict ourselves and we should have so much confidence and control in our hand to quit smoking. As we can’t stop all at a time, we have to reduce the number of cigarettes we smoke by 1 for every month and if we do so continuously we will surely quit within 2 or 3 years and we also don’t feel very much difference. There are so many devices which provide the artificial feeling of smoking and scientists are saying that these devices are very helpful to quit smoking as they provide the feeling of smoking. We should be very much deterministic and strong in order to quit smoking.
