Deadly chemicals flood the bloodstream within seconds of cigarette use, experts warn

Deadly chemicals flood the bloodstream within seconds of cigarette use, experts warn

"We are urging every smoker to take advantage of the free Smokefree support and quit for good this New Year".

It is one of the biggest causes of preventable illness, Public Health England (PHE) has stated. In Solent area alone - there is 1 person admitted to hospital with a smoking-related disease every 40 minutes.

PHE's Prof John Newton said: "They flood the bloodstream in seconds". With it reportedly killing close to 80,000 people in England annually, PHE has launched a campaign to urge smokers to quit.

The film is released in tangent with a short film in which Dr Dawn Harper talked to a group of smokers about the levels of carbon monoxide, cadmium and cancer-causing substances called nitrosamines in their blood, and the damage these chemicals can cause to the body.

Its ad reveals how each fag releases more than 4,000 chemicals into the body including 70 cancer-causing compounds.

"I've smoked at least 20 a day for over 40 years", she said.

Martin Dockrell, head of tobacco control at Public Health England said that January was a popular time to kick the habit. It was the thought of not making it to her wedding day, and leaving loved ones behind, that motivated her to take charge of her health and manage her condition.

'I'm sure I'll be a lot more active once I've stopped smoking.

"I've found it extremely hard to quit for good. So that was really positive".

Analysts Anticipate Sangamo Therapeutics, Inc
BidaskClub upgraded CytomX Therapeutics from a "hold" rating to a "buy" rating in a research report on Friday, December 15th. The rating was maintained by Cowen & Co with "Hold" on Monday, July 17. (NASDAQ:ONCE) rating on Monday, December 11.

New figures from Public Health England show it was nearly 3000 in the Duchy between 2014 and 2016. With the help of the Stoptober app and nicotine patches, which she is no longer using, Amanda has been smokefree for 13 weeks (from w/c 24 December 2017). A year ago in the south-west, 25,244 smokers died from a smoking related illness and 55,450 were admitted to hospital with a smoking related illness. It doesn't surprise me that the younger generation is smoking less because we didn't have the health information that is available today.

Long-term exposure to cadmium can damage the kidneys and bones and can lead to lung cancer.

Research has shown that those who smoke 20 or more cigarettes a day are twice as likely to develop kidney cancer as a non-smoker.

They are potent chemical compounds, many of which are carcinogenic (cancer-causing).

Other cancers associated with smoking include cancers of the pancreas, mouth, respiratory and digestive tracts.

The lab results also highlighted high levels of carbon monoxide in the blood which, although not related to tar, decreases the ability of the blood to carry oxygen and is associated with an increased risk of blood clots and heart disease.

Experts reveal just how damaging the effects of smoking on our health. "People know that tar damages the lungs, but it's less well understood that the poisons also reach the other major organs in the body". "If you could see the damage, you'd stop", the voiceover states.

"Some of the benefits are nearly immediate, with improved energy and breathing within a matter of days".

Hilary said of the damning results: 'To be honest, I knew they'd be pretty bad, as I have been smoking for so many years now.
