Or perhaps the University of Kentucky study showing a link between adult and adolescent obesity and a chemical, chemerin, which is increased if one smokes during pregnancy. This is the opposite from their birth situation as babies will be born premature and have a low birthweight to smoking moms. The long term cost of obesity and the implications are staggering. In the U.S., nearly 35% of adults and 20% of children aged 6–19 years are obese, which costs the U.S. healthcare system some $200 billion annually. Your probably getting the picture of the insane amount of medical costs that we can not afford to support.
Smoking, regardless of the form, is a health disaster.
If you use tobacco products…… stop !
If you live with others that are smoking they are robbing you of your health, ask/demand they stop.
All forms of smoke from the crap on your home surfaces, coated with the tar and other byproducts to the coated dust, are toxic.
Read and share the information from the No-Smoke organization to those who smoke.
