Chantix anti-smoking pill raises risk of heart attacks, says FDA

Early in June, the FDA released a report officially linking the smoking cessation drug Chantix to an increased risk of cardiovascular health problems including heart attacks.

The increased heart attack risk is low and is noted primarily among those who are already experiencing problems with their cardiovascular health, but the connection has been proven conclusively, and has led to FDA to require a new series of randomized, placebo-controlled trials which may eventually result in the removal of the drug from the market.

For the study in question, 700 smokers with cardiovascular disease participated in an independent randomized trial in which some of the subjects were treated with Chantix and some were treated with a placebo.

Chantix was proven to be effective in helping patients quit smoking for up to one year. But unfortunately, the subjects who received the drug experienced a higher incidence of adverse cardiovascular events that those who were provided with the placebo.

What is it In Tobacco that is So Bad?

Smoking a cigarette, a cigar or pipe releases over 4000 chemicals. Contained in the smoke that is released is tar. Tar is what remains of the smoke particles once the nicotine and water have been removed and it contains many carcinogens that are known to cause cancer. This tar and other toxic compounds like carbon monoxide damage your health by causing cancer and cardiovascular disease.

Some of the chemicals contained in cigarettes include: acetic acid, acetone, ammonia, arsenic, butane, cadmium, DDT/deildrin, ethanol, formaldehyde, hexamine, hydrogen cyanide, methane, methanol, naphthalene, nicotine, nitrobenzene, nitrous oxide phenois, stearic acid, toluene and vinyl chloride. You may have heard of some of these chemicals before because they have other uses and this tends to make them sound even less appetizing than if you are just hearing of them for the first time. Cigarettes also contain the following metals: aluminium, copper, gold, lead, magnesium, mercury, silicon, silver, titanium and zinc. The list of known cancer-causing agents in cigarettes includes: benzo(a)pyrene, B-napthylamine, cadmium, crysenes, dibenz acidine, nickel, P.A.H.S., polonium 210, toudine, urethane, nitrosamines and N. nitrosomes. Each time a smoker inhales they are taking the chemicals mentioned above into their lungs, along with harmful gasses like carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxide.

Short-Term Benefits of Stopping Smoking

About 20 minutes after your last cigarette, your body already has begun to respond to your decision to quit smoking:
Your blood pressure goes down
Your pulse rate slows
The temperature of your hands and feet increases

Eight hours after you quit smoking, your blood has begun to recover from the effects of smoking. The levels of both carbon monoxide and oxygen in your bloodstream return to normal.

Within 24 hours, your chance of a heart attack has already decreased as your system repairs itself. About 48 hours after you quit smoking, nerve endings deadened by the habit have begun to regenerate and your sense of taste and smell has already improved.

A few weeks after you quit smoking, your circulation has improved and your lungs have begun to function better. Walking and exercising become much easier. Within the first few months, your phlegm production has decreased and you won’t find yourself coughing or wheezing as much.

Long-Term Benefits of Quitting Smoking

The benefits of your decision to quit smoking continue long after the immediate impact. You might not feel these benefits the way you felt the quick improvement in your lung function and overall health, but you'll still enjoy them:
1 year: Your excess risk of suffering coronary heart disease has decreased to half the risk of a continuing smoker.
5 years: Your risk of having a stroke has decreased compared to continuing smokers, and will continue to decrease over time.
10 years: A decade after you quit smoking, your risk of lung cancer is now half that of people who keep smoking. You've also experienced a decrease in your risk of ulcers and other cancers, including cancer of the mouth, throat, esophagus, pancreas, kidneys, and bladder.
15 years: Your risk of coronary heart disease is now comparable to that of people who never smoked a single cigarette. Your risk of dying also is nearly back to the same level as that of non-smokers.

November is National Lung Cancer Awareness Month. Lung Cancer is a tragic disease that takes a terrible toll on those with the disease, as well as their loved ones. Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women in the United States. In fact, more people die from lung cancer than any other type of cancer. The American Lung Association has long been the leader in the fight against lung cancer and is taking new steps to help both patients and their families. Anne Penman Laser Therapy Dallas is supporting this initiative and would love to offer guidance and tools to assist those who are willing to make a commitment towards a smoke free life.

I urge everyone to come join us on Nov 17th in efforts to support our friends, family, and the American Cancer Society in the Great American Smokeout. It's a great time to encourage all tobacco users to quit and take the first step towards improved health and fighting cancer.

People cope with the challenge to quit smoking in different ways. One common practice is the strategy of simply cutting back with the intention to stop completely at some point. Though this strategy certainly reduces the number of cigarettes you're smoking — at least temporarily — it doesn't always get you over that last hurdle of giving up cigarettes entirely. In view of that, it's hard to consider it an effective stop-smoking method. Though cutting back may result in less smoking, the reality is that any amount of smoking can still do major, irreversible health damage. "Every single cigarette does damage," Folan says. "The 2010 U.S. surgeon general's report states that there are over 7,000 chemicals in cigarettes, and when someone smokes a cigarette, these poisonous chemicals travel to every organ in the body. Smoking can cause a sudden stroke or heart attack, and even an occasional cigarette is harmful."

-Women account for 39 percent of all smoking deaths.
-Nearly two out of every three Americans are overweight or obese.
-One out of every eight deaths in America is caused by an illness directly related to overweight and obesity.
-Stress accounts for two-thirds of family doctor visits and half the deaths to Americans under the age of 65, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Although popular women's magazines state that they have a commitment to general health coverage, they fail to cover the number one cause of cancer death in women - lung cancer - according to a new study by the American Council on Science and Health (ACSH). Further, women's magazines publish a significant number of cigarette advertisements, while neglecting to include basic information on the negative health-related consequences of cigarette smoking.

For years ACSH has surveyed the accuracy and relevance of health and smoking coverage in popular women's magazines. Over the past decade these surveys have noted significant improvements in the magazines' health coverage. Despite this progress, however, ACSH's most recent survey found that popular women's magazines continue to downplay the hazards of cigarette smoking. This latest survey covered a 13-month period, from August 1999 though August 2000. The 12 magazines included in the analysis were Cosmopolitan, Elle, Family Circle, Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, Ladies' Home Journal, Mademoiselle, McCall's, Redbook, Self, Vogue, and Woman's Day. These magazines were chosen based on their large numbers of women readers.

This ACSH study revealed that there was not much improvement in recent smoking-related health coverage. Among the magazines analyzed, there were 2,414 health-related articles published, and only 24 articles - less than one percent - addressed the health effects of tobacco. A mere three articles discussed lung cancer. There was also a disparity of anti-smoking articles among the magazines: Self accounted for the majority of the anti-smoking articles (54 percent), while both Vogue and Glamour had none. The remaining magazines each had one anti-smoking article, with the exceptions of Family Circle and McCall's, which each had two.

For the period studied, the total ratio of cigarette ad pages to anti-smoking articles was 30:1. There was an average of 4.5 cigarette ads per magazine issue, and only 4 of the 12 magazines published anti-tobacco ads. The highest ratio - that is, the worst - was Cosmopolitan, with 128 cigarette ads for every anti-smoking article, followed by Glamour, with 115 cigarette ads and no articles.

Tobacco: Still Smoking

The U.S. tobacco business faces a dilemma that no huge industry has ever before confronted. The cigarette, its prime product, is increasingly under fire as a peril to life and health; yet it continues to enjoy a king-sized market. While many of the nation's 70 million smokers may be trying to quit, the tobacco industry has no intention of doing so. After the Surgeon General's report, the cigarette makers last week withdrew behind a smokescreen of secrecy and agonized over the next line of defense.

Behind that line stands much more than tobacco. The $8 billion-a-year business affects dozens of manufacturers, 400,000 farmers, and 1,500,000 grocers, druggists and other retailers. It buys one-quarter of the nation's foil, is the third biggest user of cellophane and one of the largest consumers of paper products. Its $250 million-a-year advertising budget helps to support the nation's communications media—newspapers, magazines and, notably, television. Tobacco taxes earn more than $1 billion for the 50 states, more than $2 billion for the Federal Government.

So how difficult do you think it is to stop an industry who has its fingers in so many aspects our nation?

Many of us have been tuning into the world series and have noticed that many of the players using smokeless tobacco products. Do you think this sends the wrong message to younger viewers?

10/16/2011

A recent study published in Nicotine & Tobacco Research observed 236 smokers who were also heavy drinkers, examining the causes behind their initial smoking lapse after quitting. A lapse in terms of smoking cessation can be defined as a short-term resumption in smoking one or more cigarettes. A lapse is considered different from a relapse because of its short-term nature: the smoker still intends to quit and returns to abstinence. However, several lapses early on in a smoking cessation attempt can be a predictor of relapse.

Of the 236 smokers in the study who quit, 178 reported a lapse after quit day. Of these, 41.5% relapsed while drinking alcohol. The majority of the lapses involved situations in which participants were drinking in a social setting and in a good mood. They also found that days on which participants drank, they were at a four times greater risk for a lapse than days when they did not smoke.

It is thought that drinking alcohol may lower inhibition and motivation to remain abstinent. Further, many smokers frequently drink and smoke simultaneously, so that drinking alcohol alone may be a cue or trigger to smoke after quitting.

This study points to the need for a smoking cessation intervention to address alcohol use as a common reason for smoking resumption and plan for how the participant can limit or avoid drinking, or drink in a way that minimizes the risk of a lapse.
