Smoking Fact – Nicotine Is Good For You


Visitors: 146

Smoking is bad for you. We all know that and that it's one of the biggest killers in the world however the smoking fact that will surprise many people is:

Nicotine can actually be good for you.

This article is all about this smoking fact and it's significance for smokers everywhere.

Nicotine is ONLY responsible for the addiction

Most people assume Nicotine is harmful as it is responsible for the addiction of cigarette smoking, however it is a smoking fact that it is NOT responsible for disease and there is no medical evidence to date that it causes cancer.

Smoking fact – Other chemicals are the real killers

The World Health Organization has postulated that tobacco smoke contains about 4,000 chemicals, of which nicotine is just one.

In addition to tar, carbon monoxide is present (found in car exhaust fumes), ammonia is also present (found in floor cleaner) and arsenic (found in rat poison).

At least 43 of the chemicals in tobacco smoke are medically proven to cause cancers of the lung, throat, mouth, bladder and kidneys.

Tobacco smoke is also responsible for a number of other cancers.

Smoking Fact: Nicotine is NOT Harmful

As we have seen, nicotine is the ingredient responsible for addiction, the other compounds (not nicotine in tobacco smoke) are the ones primarily responsible for the harmful health effects of smoking cigarettes.

There is no evidence at all that indicates that nicotine itself can cause cancer.

Smoking fact – Nicotine is good for you!

It’s a smoking fact that while we all know smokers are addicted to nicotine but it is actually a naturally occuring compound.

Trace elements are found in common foods and vegetables such as potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, cauliflower, eggplant, chili peppers, and even some teas.

Nicotine is known to switch on receptors on the surface of cells in certain parts of the brain, causing these neurons to release the Neuro-transmitter dopamine, a chemical that is associated with feelings of pleasure.

In its natural state, and when ingested through the digestive system, nicotine is safe and non-toxic.

It does not present the health hazards associated with smoking cigarettes.

Additionally, the nicotine molecule is showing great promise in medical research and clinical studies for the treatment of diseases such as Alzheimer and Parkinson's disease.
