Who says that cigarette smoking is so bad? Well, apart from the World Health Organization, the Food and Drug Administration of the US, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and each medical association on the face of the Earth …
But smokers, if they are lucky to avoid all risks to health from smoking such as cancer, heart disease and emphysema. They will be protected only way for still unexplained reasons for science, against a handful of diseases and afflictions.
Although the long-term smoking is largely a ticket to early death, here are five potential benefits of smoking.
1.Reduced Risk of knee Replacement Surgery
While smokers could go bankrupt by buying packs of cigarettes, at least they can save money by avoiding knee replacement surgery. Surprising results of a new study has revealed that men who smoke are less likely to undergo surgery for total joint replacement than those who had never smoked.
What could be the connection? The knee replacement surgery is more common among runners and obese; Smoking rarely trot, and are less likely to be overweight. It could be that the nicotine in snuff which helps prevent the deterioration of joints and cartilage.
2.Reduce the Risk of Parkinson
Numerous studies have found an inverse relationship between smoking and Parkinson’s disease.
The latest study says that far from determining the cause of the protective effect, the researchers found that smoking takes years to cause greater protection, the number of cigarettes smoked daily.
Researchers at Harvard University were among the first to offer convincing evidence that smokers were less likely to develop Parkinson’s. In a study published in the journal Neurology, they found that the protective effect vanishes after quitting. They also concluded that they had no idea why.
3.Reduces the Risk of Obesity
The nicotine in snuff smoke is an appetite suppressant. It goes back to the indigenous cultures of America in pre-Columbian era. Tobacco companies in the 1920s began to tell women that smoking would make them thinner.
The relationship between smoking and weight control is complex: yes, nicotine acts as a stimulant and appetite suppressant; and the act of smoking causes behavioral modification inducing smokers to eat less. Smoking can also make food less tasty for some, what comes to further dampen appetite. As an appetite suppressant, nicotine acts on a part of the brain called the hypothalamus, as revealed in a study by researchers at the University of Yale.
No reputable doctor would recommend smoking to control weight, since the toxic baggage that accompanies cigarettes.
4.Reduces the Risk of Death after Heart Attacks
Compared with nonsmokers, smokers who have had heart attacks seem to have more responses to the two types of therapy to remove plaque from the arteries: fibrinolytic, which is basically medication; and angioplasty, which removes plaque by inserting balloons in the arteries.
However, there is a big problem, why smokers have heart attacks is that smoke heals arteries, allowing the accumulation of fat and plaque in the first place. So that smokers are younger to experience this problem, and probably his first heart attack was about 10 years before the non-smoker.
5.Support the Best Drugs for the Heart Operation
Clopidogrel is a drug used for inhibiting the formation of blood clots in patients suffering from blockages in coronary arteries and other cardiovascular diseases leading to strokes and heart attacks. Smoking clopidogrel seems to help do their best work.
A study shows the benefit of smoking at least 10 cigarettes a day. It seems that something in cigarette smoke activates proteins called cytochromes that convert clopidogrel into a more active state.
