    • nicotine
    • water
    • tar (phenol, cresol, benzo pyrene, DDT)

Many of these chemicals are considered carcinogens

Sources of Physiologically Active Compounds, cont’d
  • Gaseous phase (gas compounds)
    • carbon monoxide (CO)
    • carbon dioxide, ammonia, hydrogen cyanide, isopyrene, acetone, etc.

Many of these chemicals are considered carcinogens

acute effects of smoking
Acute Effects of Smoking
  • The effects of nicotine is dependent upon the smoker’s tolerance and previous consumption level
  • Once the cerebral cortex has been stimulated, arousal of nicotine allows norepinephrine, dopamine, acetylcholine, serotonin release
  • CNS is depressed within the brain which stimulates areas within the heart, lungs, blood flow
relationship between cigarette smoking and the following conditions
Relationship Between Cigarette Smoking and the Following Conditions
  • Cardiovascular Disease and Carbon Monoxide
    • Impairment of oxygen transport
  • Cardiovascular Disease and Nicotine
    • Myocardial infarction risk
    • Sudden cardiac death risk
    • Development of Angina Pectoralis
    • Increase of Platelet Adhesiveness

Relationship Between Cigarette Smoking and the Following Conditions, cont.
  • Cancers
    • Lung
    • Mouth

* Evidence suggests that after one year without smoking, the risk of lung cancer decreases substantially

what are cold s
What are COLD’s?
  • Chronic Bronchitis (inflammation/infection of air passageways)
  • Pulmonary Emphysema (destruction of the alveoli)
  • Cilia destruction (hair-like projections which assist mucus movement)

ets effects
ETS Effects
  • Up to 70% of nonsmokers subjected to Environmental Smoke develop some form of irritation or health ailment
  • It also causes 3000 lung cancer deaths annually
  • 60,000 deaths from heart disease is associated with ETS
  • Infants are 23 times more likely to die from SIDS when exposed to ETS
  • Children and infants becomes vulnerable to respiratory disorders and reduced lung function
smoking and pregnancy
Smoking and Pregnancy
  • Infertility
  • Problem pregnancies
  • Low birth weight
  • Premature labor/delivery
  • Miscarriage risk doubles
benefits of quitting
Benefits of Quitting
  • Taste returns back to normal

  • Decrease risk of heart and lung disease
  • More energy and alertness
