Smoking Promotes Oxidative Stress And Inflammation

Active cell protection could mitigate the adverse consequences for the smoker for all smokers who can’t make it to smoking to get there hope to mitigate at least part of the negative health consequences of smoking. Studies show that smokers are certain antioxidants in the imbalance and this can trigger damaging inflammation in lung cells. A combination of specific antioxidants may be useful for the health of smokers. The negative consequences of smoking are discussed again violently right now to the world no tobacco day. Preventive measures, aimed at preventing that especially young people succumb to the advertising strategies of the tobacco industry are in the Center.

We want to add no further contribution to this discussion. Rather, we would draw attention to the question of whether there is also a way for smokers to mitigate the negative consequences of ihrrer addiction. It is of course for the smokers always best with the truck to stop. This is however very hard and succeed right away unfortunately only few. It is therefore legitimate to mitigate at least the negative effects of the smoke. Does it work? The numerous toxins in tobacco smoke in the short term for acute inflammatory processes in the lung cells to oxidative stress from free radicals cause according to the current state of scientific knowledge and thus related to increased consumption of vitamins C and E. long-term consequences can be lung cancer, COPD (chronic bronchitis and smoker’s cough) and heart attack by hardening of the arteries.

Scientific results are to the short-term consequences of smoking. So, researchers have found in experimental studies, that even short-term inhalation of cigarette smoke can cause serious acute inflammation in the lung tissue. These are caused by an imbalance of oxidants (free radicals) and antioxidants (vitamins C and E). In smokers, the antioxidant vitamins consumed much faster than in non-smokers. If so, the oxidative imbalance by intake of antioxidant Vitamins to resolve, then it should also succeed, mitigate the negative consequences of smoking the smoking something.
