Transcript of TOBACCO

STIMULANT
Nicotine
is a

stimulant


**most commonly enter the lungs through smoking**
(speeds body processes up)
Chemicals cause the heart to pump
faster
because they decrease the oxygen in the blood and constrict blood vessels.
CHRONIC EFFECT
Examples:
A chronic effect is a consequence that remains with a person for a long time
Bad
Breath
Persistent Coughing
Excess

Cancer: a disease in which
damaged
cells grow out of control and destroy healthy tissues
Smoking Causes About

swollen
and irritated
RESPIRATORY DISEASES
Emphysema:
A disease in which the tiny
air sacs
and the walls of the lungs are
destroyed
CARDIOVASCULAR
DISEASE
A Disease of the Circulatory System
Smoking
constricts
or
tightens

This makes it difficult for blood to flow = heart has to work harder

Can lead to heart attack or stroke

SECONDHAND SMOKE
The mix of exhaled smoke and smoke from the lit end of the cigarette
Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETS)
Nonsmokers who breath ETS can experience some of the same health problems that affect smokers
Nonsmokers who are around people who smoke have a higher risk of developing lung cancer and heart disease
Laws have been passed against smoking in public places to reduce people's exposure to ETS
ADDICTION
These messages cause nicotine's effects
When nicotine attaches to a nerve receptor, the brain sends messages through the brain
When the effects wear off = withdrawal= "I need more"
Each Year, nearly
20
million people in the U.S. try to quite smoking. Only
3
% have long term success
Quitting is difficult because of physical and psychological dependence
Examples of Withdrawal: Anxious, Irritable, Tired

After awhile the body becomes used to nicotine's effects and it takes more nicotine to have the same effect (TOLERANCE)
