The Benefits of Green TeaReduce Smoking Risks
In an article, “The Irreversible Health Effects of Cigarette Smoking”, Paul H. Brodish, MSPH of the American Council on Science and Health defined irreversible health effect as a permanent change in the structure and/or function of an organ system or a permanently increased risk of suffering from a disease or some other threat to health. Thus, in Brodish’ article, he does not expound on the diseases and health problems which may be encountered by a cigarette smoker, but rather, he goes on to enumerate that at least five years of smoking cigarettes may have permanent effect on the lungs, the heart, the eyes, the throat, the urinary tract, the digestive organs, the bones and joints, and the skin – even if the smoker quits… WHOA!
Dear readers, I would not like to frighten you into pouncing on the nearest cigarette smoker you encounter and scaring them into quitting. Nor would I like to make enemies of cigarette smokers. This article is written under good intentions for the benefit of CIGARETTE SMOKERS. YES INDEED! This article is for you!
As such, I opened my topic by giving a realistic view for all of us on the effects of our favorite vice. Upon taking up the habit of smoking or even, the ‘need’ of smoking, we know about its dangers and ill effects. As we continue to go on smoking, we wholly accept the responsibility of whatever may affect our mental, physical and emotional capacities. It’s indeed a risk we have to take in order to continue the joys of smoking.
Now here’s the catch — the ill effects and dangers of smoking advertised even in the very packets of cigarettes and tobacco, can be greatly reduced! Through a variety of researches, there is a new health product which may greatly reduce smoking risk. I endeavor to introduce Green Tea Plus! Due to Green Tea Plus´ super concentration, it has over 90% polyphenols and 72 trace minerals, not found in regular green tea. 1 serving of green tea plus = up to 10 cups of regular green tea.
Numerous studies have shown that Green Tea can help reduce your cancer and cardiovascular risk. Green tea can boost your immune system by fighting free radicals. AND HERE’S THE BEST NEWS — cigarette smokers who drink up to six cups of green tea daily suffer 40 to 50 percent less damage from the toxins caused by cigarette smoke! Thus, reducing the damage caused by these toxins, the risk of cancer, emphysema, cardiovascular disease and other illnesses can be substantially decreased at the same time greatly reducing the effects of cigarette toxins on your important organ systems.
Bad Breath as an effect of cigarette smoking? No problem! Drink Green Tea to keep your breath smelling fresh. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry have discovered that polyphenols, found in green tea, inhibit the growth of an odor-causing bacterium by 30%. They say drinking a cup or two of green tea a day may help maintain fresh breath, especially if you are without a toothbrush!
