How Does Tobacco Affect?

Tobacco contain the addictive drug nicotine. Nicotine is readily absorbed into the bloodstream when a tobacco product is chewed, inhaled, or smoked. Upon entering the bloodstream, nicotine immediately stimulates the adrenal glands to release the hormone epinephrine (adrenaline). Epinephrine stimulates the central nervous system and increases blood pressure, respiration, and heart rate. Glucose is released into the blood while nicotine suppresses insulin output from the pancreas, which means that smokers have chronically elevated blood sugar levels. Nicotine increases levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which affects the brain pathways that control reward and pleasure. Smoking causes cancer of the lung, oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, esophagus, pancreas, kidney, bladder and cervix. Recent evidence links smoking with cancer of large intestine and some forms of leukemia. Smoking has a direct effect on the growth of the fetus. The more the mother smokes during pregnancy, the lower the weight of the newborn infant.

All smokers are at extra risk for:Coronary heart disease, Peripheral vascular disease, Aortic aneurysm, High cholesterol, Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, Chronic bronchitis, Emphysema, Pneumonia, Influenza, The common cold, Peptic ulcers, Chronic bowel disease, Tooth decay, Gum disease, Osteoporosis, Sleep problems, Cataracts, Thyroid disease

When an addicted user tries to quit, he or she experiences withdrawal symptoms including irritability, attention difficulties, sleep disturbances, increased appetite, and powerful cravings for tobacco.
