What Effect Does Exercise Have On The Amount Of Carbon Dioxide Released By The Blood
Respiration: When you exercise multiple physiological processes occur. You metabolize more thus producing more co2. Co2 is scrubbed from the blood by the lungs to eliminate it. Co2 is regulated very tightly and part of the issue is actually how fit you are - a cross country runner has a different co2 physiology than a couch potato or a smoker. ...Read more

Each are different: "Tars" are complex hydrocarbons resulting from burning tobacco that are associated with causing cancer in organs that come into contact with them - mouth, throat, larynx, lung, esophagus, stomach and elsewhere. Nicotine produces the physical dependency and much of the heart problems, and carbon monoxide lowers oxygen levels in the body, resulting in fatigue, shortness of breath and high red counts ...Read more
How does increase amount of the carbon dioxide in the blood affect kidney and causes renal failure?
Carbon Dioxide : Good question. Your kidneys have many functions. One is to maintain ph balance. When your body accumulates too much carbon dioxide(co2) your kidneys work to eliminate it. Co2 makes your body more acidic. The acidity not only makes your kidneys work harder, but it also makes all body functions less efficient. Over time this can cause kidney failure. This is not a common cause of kidney failure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When you drink water much of that is eliminated in your urine, but that does not mean you did not need water or that it was not useful as it passed thru you. B1 is non-toxic- high doses don't harm. ...Read more
Destroys the lung: Emphysema causes destruction of lung tissue. The blood vessles in the lung get destroyed in the lung. These vessles carry the blood in the lung to pick up oxygen. If they are destroyed then, oxygen can not get into the blood vessles / blood and you get low oxygen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Multiple effects.: Nicotine increases blood pressure by promoting the constriction of blood vessels, and elevating the heart rate. These effects occur through many mechanisms, including activation of the sympathetic nervous system, adrenal hormone release, and the release of many neurotransmitters. Carbon monoxide is not known to have a direct effect on the heart or vessels, but impairs blood oxygen delivery. ...Read more
If B-12 is a water-soluble vitamin and your body gets rid of excess, what would cause an 'off the charts' high level on blood test results?
Supplementation.: Most common cause of very high b12 level is patient taking vitamin supplement. B12 is not "gotten rid of" quickly. Healthy people may have a five year supply in the liver. ...Read more
Nothing: B12 is water soluble and will leave your body when all of the many biological functions are achieved. I actually believe that alot of circulating B12 lends the cells the ability to easily grab it and use it for biochemical purposes- making red and white cells mature in the bone marrow, making neurotransmitters, etc. ...Read more
