Smoke, Cigarette, Oxidative Stress, Lung, Cancer
Does a cigarette calm your nerves? Smokers often claim a cigarette helps them to calm their nerves but according to a recent UK study, smoking actually contributes to chronic stress, Reuters reported. Researchers from Barts and The London School of Medicine and Dentistry followed 469 smokers who tried to quit the habit after being hospitalized for heart disease. At the beginning of the study, 85 percent of the smokers believed smoking “very much” helped them deal with stress. Cigarette smoking is the greatest single cause of illness and premature death in the UK. “Sources NZ news”
About 46.6 million U.S. adults smoke cigarettes, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Annually about 443,000 people die from smoking-related illnesses and another 8.6 million people live with a smoking-related disease.
There are several likely ways that cigarette smoke does its damage. One is Oxidative Stress that mutates DNA, promotes atherosclerosis, and leads to chronic lung injury. Oxidative stress is thought to be the general mechanism behind the Aging process, contributing to the development of cancer, cardiovascular disease, and COPD.
The body produces antioxidants to help repair damaged cells. Smokers have lower levels of antioxidants in their blood than do nonsmokers. Smoking is associated with higher levels of chronic inflammation, another damaging process that may result in oxidative stress.
Scientists agree that AGING and most deadly DISEASES are the result of cellular deterioration due to destructive molecules called FREE RADICALS. Free Radical Damage that CAUSES AGING is called OXIDATIVE STRESS, the same process that causes RUST. In a sense, AGING is your body’s way of RUSTING from the INSIDE OUT!

Protandim® works at the cellular level, triggering cells to naturally increase production of protective antioxidant enzymes such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and glutathione synthase, while decreasing production of pro-inflammatory signals. It activates Nrf2, the master regulator of our survival genes and slows down aging process.
