SMOKING & 2ND HAND SMOKE = MORE OBESITY? CONFLICTS !

RECENTLY, I READ ABOUT THE CAUSES OF OBESITY AND IT'S INCREASED RISKS OF HEART ATTACK, STROKE, DIABETES, JOINT PROBLEMS – FROM A RENOWN JOURNAL:

SLEEP DEPRIVATION, POLLUTION AND CHEMICALS, UNNATURAL HEATING/AC, ANTIDEPRESSANTS, AGING POPULATION, OLDER CHILDBEARING WOMEN, HEAVIER OPPOSITES ATTRACTING, AND OF COURSE, DECREASED SMOKING RATES ……..AND THAT IS THE RUB……..

RECENTLY, OF COURSE WE SAW THE SURGEON GENERAL DECLARE WAR ON THE "SECOND-HAND SMOKE" ISSUE SAYING IT IS A HEALTH HAZARD, NOT JUST AN INCONVENIENCE OR NUISANCE.  OF COURSE THIS "INVOLUNTARY SMOKING" AS SOME HAVE COINED IT, CREATES ALL SORTS OF QUESTIONS REGARDING HEALTH IN GENERAL FOR THE INDIVIDUAL AND OTHERS………BILL OF RIGHTS ? 

SUGGESTIONS INCLUDE GENERALLY:

USE SMOKE FREE AREAS SUCH RESTAURANTS, BUSINESSES

AVOID HAVING YOUR CHILDREN IN A SMOKE EXPOSED ENVIRONMENT

DO NOT SMOKE AROUND SICK PERSONS

HAVE EMPLOYEE-ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS AND SMOKER AREAS

SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT………LESS SMOKING…..MORE OBESITY……..

AND IN AREAS WHERE GRASS FIELDS, FRUIT FIELDS, AND OTHER AGRICULTURAL BURNING OR SMOKE MODALITIES ARE USED……..REMEMBER….

A SMOKEY APPLE A DAY WILL KEEP THE WEIGHT AWAY-BUT NOT NECESSARILY THE DOC !
