Let’s talk cigar smoke…

Let’s talk cigars shall we?

HEALTHY TIP: Nowadays there’s a big trend in men and women toward smoking cigar. Whether is socially, business, or both. It’s a vice for many but do you actually know what is to smoke cigar? Since knowledge is key…Everybody knows that smoking is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Cigars are air cured and fermented (cigarettes are made of different blends of tobacco and not fermented). Among the many substances in smoke are: lead, cadmium, ammonia, carbon monoxide, benzene, formaldehyde, butane, acetone, etc…Cigar smoke is possibly more toxic than cigarette smoke because of the previous harmful substances mentioned plus:
● HAS HIGHER  level of cancer causing nitrosamines that are produced during the fermentation process.
● MORE cancer causing tar.
Since cigar wrappers are less porous, it makes the burning less complete than the burning of a cigarette tobacco…therefore more toxic. Takes about 10 minutes to smoke a cigarette and more time to smoke a large cigar making the person more exposed to the toxic substances. Cigar smoking cause cancer of the oral cavity, larynx, esophagus, and lung. Cigar smokers who inhale are at major risk of the previous plus heart disease. Of course, most cigarette smokers inhale and most cigar smokers DO NOT inhale BUT…cigar smokers have higher rates than NON cigar smokers of having all the previous diseases because lips, mouth, tongue, throat, and larynx are ALL exposed to the smoke. So if you want to live a bit longer, you decide. Like Rob Liano once said, “Knowledge is power? No. Knowledge on its own is nothing, but the application of useful knowledge, now that is powerful.”
