Hypnosis Denver – Three myths about smoking.
1. Myth: Low nicotine cigarettes are safer.
Fact: The blend of tobacco in a low nicotine cigarette is exactly the same as in a regular cigarette. The reason cigarette companies can call them “low” has to do with the way nicotine levels are tested.
As the regulator of cigarettes, the Federal Trade Commission tests for nicotine and tar levels with machines that draw air through a cigarette in two-second puffs, repeated once per minute, until the cigarette is burned to the filter. The smoke that is generated in this manner tests low in nicotine.

American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons:
A University of Rochester Medical Center analysis of more than 5,300 patients followed for eight months during treatment of spinal disorders showed that cigarette smokers reported far more pain than never-smokers or those who had quit.

Hypnosis Denver – The effects of smoking on bone health.
Whatever your age, the effects of smoking on bone health can’t be ignored.
The years from childhood until age 30 are prime time for building bone mass. “If an adolescent is smoking, they will not develop maximum bone mass. They will end up with a smaller skeleton and less bone mass, compared to a nonsmoker,” says Primal Kaur, MD, an osteoporosis specialist at Temple University Health System in Philadelphia.
Smoking continues to affect bone health in your 40s and 50s. Women that age begin to lose estrogen, which is very important for bones. If you smoke, bone loss is more rapid — and with more complications, Kaur tells WebMD.
Hypnosis Denver – Dangerous New Smoking Trend.
Leave it to the young folk to find even more creative ways to get drunk. The latest fad among college students for drinking, as well as those watching their waistline, is smoking alcohol, better known as drunkorexia to calorie-conscious party-goers.
Based on YouTube videos and tutorials, which have been popping up online, here’s how it works: Alcohol is poured over dry-ice, then heated up and inhaled through vapors using a straw. An alternative DIY method called “bike-pump” can be used by pouring alcohol into a bottle and vaporized with pressure from the bicycle pump.
So why all the fuss when throwing back a few shots could do the job just as easily? Doctors say that the trend, despite being dangerous, has led many to believe it’s “healthier” and a proactive way to lose weight while partying, since no calories are being consumed.

Gay Sutherland, director of the Maudsley Hospital Smokers Clinic in London, says, “Cigarettes contain 4,000 different chemicals and gases, some of them deadly. When you smoke, your blood carries around poisonous carbon monoxide gas which hijacks the red blood cells.

Hypnosis Denver – Will Obamacare Cost You More Money?
Lighting up may cost you under the Affordable Care Act. The health-care law bars insurers from charging people higher premiums for costly health conditions, so diabetics or cancer patients pay the same rate as healthy people the same age. But there’s an exception for the 19 percent of American adults who smoke: Insurance companies can charge them premiums as much as 50 percent higher than nonsmokers will pay.
Not all insurers will squeeze smokers. Some states, including California, New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts, ban the practice. Even where it’s allowed, insurance carriers may want to avoid alienating customers with higher premiums. Many are forgoing the surcharges or tacking on smaller fees than the federal law allows.

Vapers inhale those same gases and particles into their lungs. Rahman wondered what effects those vapors might have on cells there…
