Does Smoking Cigarettes Affect A Concussion
It's still tobacco: Pipe smokers get more in the way of cancer of the mouth, iips, tongue, mouth and throat, including the larynx, than do cigarette smokers, but less lung cancer and heart disease, because they usually do not inhale the smoke. However, nicotine is absorbed from oral mucous membranes, so addiction to nicotine and many of the cardiac problems still occur. ...Read more
Yes: I agree with everything dr snead said. But why are you using drugs in front of your children? It's bad enough you use drugs, but modeling this behavior for them to mimic will encourage their subsequent drug use. Please think about your parental responsibilities, and put this adolescent drug behavior behind you. If you can't, please seek drug/alcohol rehab help. Do it for your kids! ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
What is "THAT?": Smoking cigarettes is the equivalent of sucking on the tailpipe of a running car. It fills your blood up with CARBON MONOXIDE & this reduces O2 to minimal levels. Yeah- It's a problem. After a concussion the brain really NEEDS the O2, smoking is exactly what it DOESN'T want. If you'll specify what "that" really means then, I can give you a better answer.

Approximately how long does it take to develop lung cancer from smoking cigarrettes? Do electronic cigarrettes actually help a person quit smoking?
Why take a chance?: Cigarettes cause more than 90% of lung cancers, and more than 90% of many other cancers. Having said that, you can smoke all your life and never get cancer; you can also get lung cancer if you have never smoked a cigarette in your life. Smoking is like playing russian roulette. Electronic cigarettes help you quit, only if you are serious about quitting. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is smoking marijuana alkaline or acid forming. What does smoking marijuana do for a sinus cancer?
Whoa: Everything you read online about "acid-forming" and "alkaline-forming" is pseudoscientific fantasy. Ignore it. If you have a sinus cancer, you need to get it removed definitively, and keep in mind that the remaining epithelium probably bears a few field-change mutations that predispose to your getting it again. Smoke's a likely risk factor. How about just getting high on life's beauty? ...Read more
Yes. It's bad. : As a pediatric ENT i can say there is no doubt that kids in homes in which adults smoke are sicker from a breathing and ear infection standpoint. But what parents don't realize is that "third hand smoke"- exposure to your clothes or hair or car when you've smoked (and they weren't even in the room at the same time) still causes issues. Best for all not to have smoke exposure! http://www.Cdc.Gov/. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
How much impact would secondhand marijuana smoke have on small children? Any different from cigarette smoke?
Lots: Secondhand mj smoke implies that an adult is smoking in the same area as a child. Besides the obvious impact of smoke inhalation, there is the facet of tacit acceptance of illegal activities to an impressionable child. The biggest impact then would be abuse of the child. Look at it this way, would you shoot up heroin in front of a child? ...Read more
