As people already know, carcinogens exist in several different forms. They also know, cigarettes are really carcinogens not only because of the smoke produced by the combustion of tobacco but also for all the 599 additives cigarettes have.
Unlike other drugs, smoking involves the participation of non-smokers. If people are smoking by your side, you have to breathe the smoke.
Non-smokers very much don’t want to be part or share someone else’s addiction in special when it’s really harmful. Acting and thinking like that, we show that we are very concerned about our health and wellness, what is great.
Great! Now let’s see…
There is a question! Are we really concerned about our health and wellness or it’s just because everybody knows and comments about that issue?
A couple of weeks ago I went to a party at one of my friend’s house and while we were on the backyard enjoying the great afternoon while someone was grilling/barbecuing, some of them where smoking.
Nothing special with that because they were outdoors and not in a place where cigarette smoking was banned but at some point I heard a woman who was with us comment about smoking and making derogatory comments about the ones that were smoking, considering that they were not respecting the people attending the party.
As I am a former smoker and I know how hard is quit that addiction I imagine that the smokers didn’t like to be discriminated while they were doing it outdoors and people just could move away to someplace where the smoke didn’t bother them.
But is was Ok! Nothing too serious.
A couple of minutes later, when I was looking for my friend I was surprised when I saw the woman who was complaining about the smoke, being next to the grill receiving all that smoke and worse than that, eating a burned piece of pork rib. I stood and just admire the scene.
A few minutes later and after the woman had eaten the piece of rib with an air of delight, I approached her and I subtly asked her if she was aware of what had just done because I had heard moments before making deep critical to smokers who were present, with the justification that the result of their action was extremely detrimental to the health of others.
She looked at me and with an air of arrogance asked me if I was in favor of smoking in public places and the reason why I was bothering.
I very gently told her that, what she had just done was 400 times worse for her health than, being outdoors where some people were smoking. I also told her that was the reason I could not find acceptable any criticism that she can do about.
I just have realized that people only learn about some questions to annoy other people because they continue to be in charge of ignorance. If they were really concerned about Health issues, they should learn everything about the subject.
On this blog you already had the chance to learn everything about the grill food issues when cooked according to the conventional known methods. You should already know how much is harmful for your health.
Smoking cigarettes, exposes one’s body to many different cancer-causing agents. According to what I have been explaining, grilling also induce carcinogenicity in some foods.
A carcinogen is something that has the property of carcinogenicity – causes Cancer. Some are substances such as those found in cigarettes and grilled or barbecued meats while others exist in the forms of radiation, such as that emitted from atoms with unstable nuclei. Carcinogens cause cancer, which is often deadly, by causing uncontrolled cellular growth and division that leads to the formation of deadly tumors that can spread throughout the body.
Some studies have shown that human habits and behaviors can have an inherent level of carcinogenicity. Staying awake through the night, for instance, affects the chemical balance in the human body in a way that may lead to or promote cancer. Such behaviors or habits that promote cancer usually fall into the category of “circadian disruption,” meaning that they are behaviors that disrupt the normal, healthy cycle of sleep and wakefulness that people are supposed to go through on a daily basis.
Many carcinogens damage an animal’s DNA, thereby causing the uncontrolled cell growth that leads to cancer. Some substances, while not able to cause cancer themselves, can promote the growth of cancerous tumors and are still sometimes classified as carcinogens. Such substances are often hormones or other substances that can promote cellular growth.
