Passive Smoking: Long Term Effects

Bronchitis Newborn - Passive Smoking: Long Term Effects
Passive smoking may not directly cause certain diseases related to smoking, but it gives you a chance of developing anything smoking-related, at a higher rate. Studies have shown and confirmed an increased risk in the following:

Stroke  ' lung cancer  ' nasal cancer  ' spontaneous abortion (miscarriage)  ' asthma exacerbation in adults  ' cystic fibrosis (exacerbation)

From then on, researches have proven conclusively that there is not just an increased risk of heart disease but that the risks are non-linear. The increased risks and effects on the heart are unlike that of lung cancer where the risk is almost in proportion to the exposure. In passive smoking, the risk of heart disease may be half that of someone smoking 20 cigarettes a day even though that person is only inhaling 1% of the smoke. New studies reveal that exposure to ETS also causes platelet aggregation, a condition where the blood starts to thicken, and a narrowing of arteries and blood flow reduction when endothelial cells dysfunction.

Their Conclusion:
These meta-analyses show that there is a statistically significant and consistent association between lung cancer risk in spouses of smokers and exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke from the spouse who smokes. The excess risk is of the order of 20% for women and 30% for men and remains after controlling for some potential sources of bias and confounding. It is rather inviting to go on writing on Bronchitis. however as there is a limitation to the number of words to be written, we have confined ourselves to this. However, do enjoy yourself reading it. :D.

Pneumonia (induction & aggravation)  ' Meningococcal infections in children  ' Cancers and leukaemia in children  In adults:  ' heart disease

Parts of the mouth and throat such as the lip, oropharynx (the back of the mouth), larynx (voice box), and hypopharynx (area below the pharynx or throat),

Infancy and Children:
' birth defects  ' sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)  ' low birthweight  ' illnesses in children  ' middle ear infection Writing is something that has to be done when one is in the mood to write. So when we got in the mood to write about Bronchitis, nothing could stop us from writing!

Decreased Lung Function
' cervical cancer  ' infections  ' ear infections  ' chronic obstructive pulmonary disease  ' bronchitis  ' allergies and death of children Isn't it amazing how much information can be transferred through a single page? So much stands to gain, and to lose about Bronchitis through a single page.

  • An examination of a large sample in the United States also showed an elevated heart disease risk of around 20%.
  • Knowing how pervasive heart disease is among non-smokers in the United States, a 20% additional risk is very significant.
Quote
The esophageal (tube from the pharynx to the stomach)   ' stomach, liver and pancreas.  Passive Smoking and Heart Disease  In the early 1990s, studies by Glantz and Parmley estimated that the third leading preventable cause of death in the United States was heart disease. The first two were active smoking and alcohol abuse. It was also found out that non-smokers living with smokers had an increased risk of heart disease of around 30%.

Passive Smoking and Other Cancers
Conventional studies tend to focus on finding the health effects of ETS on the respiratory system. Newer studies have found associations between passive smoking and cervical, bladder, nasal-sinus, and brain cancer. Ignorance is bliss, is it? Isn't it better to learn more than not to know about something like Bronchitis Allergies. So we have produced this article so that you can learn more about it! :o.

Among active smokers, there is recorded a risk of cancer to:  ' the renal pelvis (part of the ureter that receives urine from the kidney),   ' possibly the renal adenocarcinoma (the glands of the kidney),

Passive smoking kills an estimated 53,000 non-smokers per year. It is the 3rd leading cause of preventable death in the U.S.    Visit us or share your opinions at the worlds best homepage or free content resource. As the information we produce in our writing on Bronchitis Allergies may be utilized by the reader for informative purposes, it is very important that the information we provide be true. We have indeed maintained this.

Learning Difficulty
' behavior problems (i.e. depression, anxiety and immaturity)  ' allergies  ' asthma (induction & aggravation)  ' bronchitis (induction & aggravation) A rolling stone gathers no moss. So if I just go on writing, and you don't understand, then it is of no use of me writing about Bronchitis Allergies! Whatever written should be understandable by the reader. :D.

Has it ever happened to you to believe that just when you were about to recover from a cold or even the flu an annoying cough and some pain in your chest start to develop? You might be inclined to believe that the cold has come back again and it was not really over. Well, that is not the problem. What you might feel is only the beginning of acute bronchitis. With bronchitis, chills and a mild fever will also appear.

Other Serious Problems
Chronic bronchitis or asthma may be the follow- ups of acute bronchitis.   The symptoms of acute bronchitis are similar to those of the cold. The first bronchitis sign that one will surely have is coughing. If the cough also brings mucus, green or yellow, that there is no doubt that you have acute bronchitis. The mucus that you coygh when you have bronchitis does not come from the stomach, but it is produced by the airways. In normal health conditions, your airways produce mucus, but it does not come up because they are always swallows with the saliva. When you have bronchitis, the airways are inflamed and thus, the mucus accumulates. Furthermore, in bronchitis cases your body also produces more mucus. When you cough, the primary bronchitis symptom, the mucus comes up. If it is also other color but white, besides bronchitis, you might have another infection. However, not in all bronchitis cases, sputum is produced. Bronchitis Asthma is the substance of this composition. Without Bronchitis Asthma, there would not have been much to write and think about over here!

Bronchitis is usually the result of a cold. This happens because the same virus that causes the flu, also causes bronchitis. Furthermore, almost any infection in the respiratory system leads to bronchitis. This condition, bronchitis can be of two types: acute bronchitis or chronic bronchitis. Acute bronchitis is a milder illness that affects the inner portion of the bronchial tubes. As a result of bronchitis, these airways become inlamated or even infected. People suffer from a cold very often, but not so after do they develop bronchitis afterwards. However, almost everyone has had bronchitis once in his/ her life. Acute bronchitis is a very mild illness that usually pases on it' s own. The majority of bronchitis cases last about one week. Acute bronchitis also does not leave effects. However, the cough, which is the trade mark of bronchitis may last a few weeks longer, after your bronchitis has healed. Br careful, though, because if you have bronchitis, even acute bronchitis, quite often, this may lead to In addition to what we had mentioned in the previous paragraph, much more has to be said about Asthmatic Bronchitis. If space permits, we will state everything about it.

For more resources about bronchitis or especially about asthmatic bronchitis please visit *****  About the Author: A substantial amount of the words here are all inter-connected to and about Acute Bronchitis Chronic Bronchitis. Understand them to get an overall understanding on Acute Bronchitis Chronic Bronchitis.

Coughing is an important way to keep your throat and airways clear. Coughing is an action the body takes to get rid of burdens that are irritating the air passages. In the more advanced stages, it's marked by the symptom that gives the disease its name: a severe, hacking cough followed by a high-pitched intake of breath that sounds like "whoop. Coughing can also be triggered by a bolus of food going down the trachea instead of the esophagus due to a failure of the epiglottis although this may result in choking instead.

The Chinese herb Radix Platycodi is one popular herb that can expel pus from the lungs. Pus or pleghm is the main reason why a person keeps coughing. The roots of Radix Platycodi are especially prepared to make a concoction that can help treat cough fast. We find great potential in Chronic Bronchitis. This is the reason we have used this opportunity to let you learn the potential that lies in Chronic Bronchitis.

Betel (Piper betle) Betel leaves when crushed, made into paste with water and applied externally on the chest have amazing effects in the treatment of coughs. We did not write too elaborate an article on Chronic Bronchitis Lung as it would be then difficult for the common man to read it. We have written this article in such a way that everyone will be able to read and understand it!

  • Gargling with salt and warm water is also very helpful by cutting phlegm and reducing inflammation.
  • Dissolve 1/2 teaspoon table salt in 1/2 cup warm water, and gargle every three to four hours.
  • Self-praise is no praise.
  • So we don't want to praise ourselves on the effort put in writing on Bronchitis. instead, we would like to hear your praise after reading it!
Causes of Cough
The common Causes of Cough:  Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)  Lung disease such as bronchiectasis interstitial lung disease, or tumors. Reading all this about Chronic Bronchitis is sure to help you get a better understanding of Chronic Bronchitis. So make full use of the information we have provided here. :)

  • Biao Men Dong is another Chinese herb that can be used for coughs and colds.
  • This herb can be obtained from the roots of the She Xu tree.
  • It is very effective in stopping the main cause of cough while strengthening, releasing, and nourishing heat inside the body.
Belleric Myroblan (Terminalia belerica) The fruit of the belleric myroblan has excellent curative powers in the treatment of coughs caused due to catarrh.

  • Antihistamines and decongestants are a good choice for treating coughs associated with post nasal drip.
  • If some underlying disease is causing the cough, treatment should first be based on treating the underlying disease.
  • Some of the matter found here that is pertaining to Emphysema Chronic Bronchitis seems to be quite obvious.
  • You may be surprised how come you never knew about it before!
Exposure to Secondhand Smoke
Allergies and asthma.  Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease ( emphysema or chronic bronchitis).  Lung infections such as pneumonia or acute bronchitis. Thinking of what to do upon reading this article on Bronchitis Lung? Well you can very well use the information constructively by imparting it to others.

Useful Herbs in the Treatment of Cough
- Bay Berry (Myrica nagi) The bay berry is very effective in curing throat congestions which causes the coughs. It can even cure coughs that are caused due to chronic bronchitis. Its bark is the effective part which is to be taken in the form of a powder. The presentation of an article on Persistent Cough plays an important role in getting the reader interested in reading it. This is the reason for this presentation, which has gotten you interested in reading it!


Among the Diseases that can be Caused by Smoking are:



Cigarette Smoking
ACE inhibitors (medications used to control blood pressure).  Cough Remedies  Coughs can be treated with cough medications. Dry coughs are treated with cough suppressants that reduce the urge to cough, while productive coughs (coughs that produce phlegm) are treated with expectorants that loosen mucus from the respiratory tract. Responsibility is what makes a person. So we felt it our responsibility to elaborate more on Chronic Bronchitis Lung so that not only us, but everyone knew more about it!

Antibiotic overuse (especially for the common cold) has led to antibiotic resistance. Natural antibiotics and anti viral herbs that may boost immune system are discussed, plus the types of cold and flu, and cough and cold in a weak immune system.

Oriental Medicine Concepts of Immunity  Wei (pronounced 'way') qi ('chee') is the protective qi. This qi is thought to circulate in the more superficial levels (skin and muscles). In biomedical terms, it is probably not the entire immune system, but the part of it that deals with external invasions. Protective qi is controlled by Lung organ-system, and can be compromised by overwork, grief, smoking, not eating, and talking too much.

Vulnerability occurs particularly when you are tired, or from excessive environmental influences like cold, heat, dryness, and dampness- each of these is associated with a season when that pathogen is more prevalent

Types of Colds and Flu in Oriental Medicine Wind-Cold * Symptoms: Feeling of cold, chills more than fever, cough, congestion, fatigue * Herb Formulas: if no sweating - Ephedra Formula; if more body aches - Kudzu Tincture * Kitchen Medicine: Fresh ginger or garlic tea (warming) Writing about Chronic Bronchitis is an interesting writing assignment. There is no end to it, as there is so much to write about it!

Superbacteria  Medical professionals are now concerned about antibiotic-resistant 'superbacteria.' These superbacteria have evolved because of inappropriate medical prescriptions. Antibiotics are effective only against bacteria, not against viruses. MD's and DO's often prescribed antibiotics to pacify patients who refused to leave the doctor's office without them - even when the doctor knew the antibiotic would not help. The problem is that we are running out of antibiotic drugs; there is a finite number of them. It is thought that, in the future, the more complex treatment agents such as natural herbs may be our only defense. Keep your mind open to anything when reading about Chronic Bronchitis. Opinions may differ, but it is the base of Chronic Bronchitis that is important.

15 Anti-Viral Chinese Herbs Proven Effective in Human Studies    Andrographis (Chuan xin lian): Viral hepatitis, encephalitis B, herpes zoster, viral influenza   Astragalus (Huang qi): Restores immune function in immune suppression from chemotherapy, increases IgA, IgG, and interferon production   Deer antler (Lu rong): Promotes lymphocyte transformation and treats leukopenia due to chronic benzene poisoning, promotes bone marrow function   Ganoderma (Ling zhi): Treats hepatitis, chronic bronchitis, cardiovascular disease, altitude sickness, cancer (especially leukemia)   Ginseng Ren shen: Increases resistance by stimulating adrenal gland via pituitary   Isatis (Da qing ye, Ban lan gen): Encephalitis B, measles, mumps, infectious hepatitis, URTI   Licorice (Gan cao): In pulmonary TB, it increased ESR - arthritis and hepatomegaly from hepatitis - acute and chronic hepatitis   Lonicera (Jin yin hua): Severe acute pneumonia, bacillary dysntery   Oldenlandia (Bai hua she she cao): Peritonitis, UTI, hepatitis, chronic bronchitis   Phellodendron (Huang bai): Meningitis, dysentery, GI infection, conjunctivitis, UTI, candidal/trichomonal vaginitis   Polygonum (He shou wu): Malaria Polygonum cuspidatum (Hu zhang): Lung infections, tonsillitis, hepatitis, RA, osteoarthritis   Salvia (Dan shen): Hepatitis, SLE   Siberian ginseng (Wu jia pi): Xue and qi xu - improves leukocyte count in 70% of leukopenic patients - caution when there is heat   Sophora (Shan dou gen): Alkaloids effective in countering leukopenia due to radiation   Viola (Zi hua di ding): TB.

Entrance of the Pathogen
The Lung (a system of correspondences including the lung, throat, nose, and skin) is the most exterior and most vulnerable organ. Sweating opens the pores, and 'wind' enters through pores. Wind can be thought of as the pathogen itself, since another quality (cold, damp, or heat, for example) is usually attached to describe the pathogen. Wind-heat, then, is the invasion of the body by a heat pathogen. Accept the way things are in life. Only then will you be able to accept these points on Chronic Bronchitis. Chronic Bronchitis can be considered to be part and parcel of life.

Sweating (or 'exterior-releasing') is a major therapy in OM. The type of invasion may be identified by whether or not the patient is sweating, and whether or not that sweating is leading to improvement in your health Ignorance is bliss they say. However, do you find this practical when you read so much about Chronic Bronchitis?  :o.

Wind-Heat * Symptoms: Feeling of heat, fever more than chills, sore throat or cough, body aches, red eyes, irritability * Herb Formulas: More sore throat - Honeysuckle & Forsythia Formula; More cough - Mulberry & Chrysanthemum Formula * Kitchen Medicine: Mint or chysanthemum tea (cooling)

Tiredness, Qi deficiency, & Weakness The fight may take so much of your energy that you can do nothing but lay in bed. You may also lose your appetite, which is a sign of qi deficiency in OM. Some people are more constitutionally weaker from birth, especially those with childhood asthma and allergies. These are often metal or water type people. They need to be especially vigilant in prevention. Make the best use of life by learning and reading as much as possible. read about things unknown, and more about things known, like about Chronic Bronchitis. ;)

Fever is thought to be the 'heat of battle' between pathogenic and righteous qi. In OM, you have a fever if you feel hot, even if your thermometer shows a normal body temperature. Chills are a sign that the pathogen is winning, while fever is a sign that your body is winning. life is short. Use it to its maximum by utilizing whatever knowledge it offers for knowledge is important for all walks of life. Even the crooks have to be intelligent!

Chinese herbs have successfully treated and caused remission of viral hepatitis and AIDS. In clinical research studies on human beings, at least 15 herbs have been shown to stimulate the immune system and destroy viruses and bacteria (see next table). Chinese herbs appear to have an effect against bacteria and viruses directly, and they stimulate and strengthen the immune system (wei qi) in doing its job of ridding the body of pathogens. Whenever one reads any reading matter, it is vital that the person enjoys reading it. One should grasp the meaning of the matter, only then can it be considered that the reading is complete.
