Benefits of Nicotine

14 posts in this topic

I don't condone smoking but this subject of nicotine intrigues me .

I don't know about you but I am fed up with the lies and hiding of facts by this government administration so I research everything !

Nicotine

This notorious stimulant may enhance learning and help treat Parkinson's, schizophrenia and other neurological diseases. 

Every drug of addiction must have its day. Morphine remains one of the most potent painkillers ever discovered. Cocaine’s chemical cousin lidocaine is still used by physicians and dentists as an effective local anesthetic. Even demon alcohol, when taken in moderation, cuts the risk of heart attacks, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis and a hodgepodge of other ailments.

Now comes nicotine, perhaps the most unlikely wonder drug ever to be reviled.

If dozens of human and animal studies published over the past six years are borne out by large clinical trials, nicotine — freed at last of its noxious host, tobacco, and delivered instead by chewing gum or transdermal patch — may prove to be a weirdly, improbably effective drug for relieving or preventing a variety of neurological disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, mild cognitive impairment (MCI), Tourette’s and schizophrenia. It might even improve attention and focus enough to qualify as a cognitive enhancer. And, oh yeah, it’s long been associated with weight loss, with few known safety risks. (Although, in truth, few safety studies of the increasingly popular e-cigarettes have yet been published.) 

 

I CSB op of this thread personally know a man of 76 years old that has Parkinson's disease I can vouch that when he starts shaking he chews the nicotine gum then he stops shacking in just a few moments !!!!

A added bonus to this thread being that we are on the subject of nicotine .

Nicotine has an adverse effect on Fluoride which is a neuro-toxin

The ingestion of nicotine protects the brain against all the fluoride in our water, food, and now they are actually chemtrailing / dumping it in conjunction with other chemicals to affect our DNA and our brain.  It will be the smokers that will have the best chance of avoiding those affects on our body.  How ironic is that?

Nicotine in smoking is the least harmful of the substances. Its the other stuff that causes problems. The tar and the habit. Hell you can quit smoking and be free of nicotine in 24 hours but most people still crave and that psychological.

I like nicotine as a stimulant. It works. Although i dont think about it much. Considering the forms of intake that are bad for your health.

This is fact it's the chemicals in tobacco that will cause the addictions and health issues . My dad smoked cigars and he never had a craving but enjoyed the comfort with a beer or a shot of scotch after dinner . But though out the day he never smoked anything .

I too have first hand experience of a case where a woman had horrible hallucinations (like little monsters crawling up from under her bed) when she wasn't smoking. Her tobacco was home grown, dried and rolled - no additives or preservatives. I'd never heard that she was diagnosed as schizophrenic, but I do know it runs in their family, particularly on the female side. Sadly she passed from lung cancer, of course attributed to smoking. I'd lay my money on the damage being done in the first 40 years of her life rather than the last 20 as she was very off the grid self sufficient during the last many years.

Related, there's a really newly discovered use for Tobacco! It can be used to grow EBOLA for making potential vaccines for it, as opposed to having to use live mouse-cell cultures. Much easier to keep stable. Nice to see that there good sides to many demonized substances! 8-)

If I'm going to be eaten I'm going to make myself as poisonous as possible before I'm served.

Smoking cigarettes is bad for you - period!  Like Ukshep says it is the additives that are the buggers in the salad.  Nicotine as such may even have benefits - in moderation - but the cent, tar and other additives are what gets to you.  I have seen four people close to me die as a result of emphysema which is 99% due to smoking and in most cases smoking "mild" cigarettes.  

The best way to stop smoking is never to start!

I was a smoker - I smoked the old Gitane and Gauloises  stuff which was neat tobacco - I also smoked a pipe from time to time - In 1999 I contracted a bacteria in my lung. Specialists say it is caused by a fungi that grows on airport luggage trolleys - at the time I traveled a hell of a lot throughout most of the African countries (for those who know, it is not all that hygiene) In 2000 I stopped smoking - cold turkey.  The only way to really stop (I suppose any adiction) is to get the head psychologically in the right space first then do the rest - easy.  Within 36 hours the nicotine is flushed and what remains is the habit of subconsciously just lighting up.  My take is if you try and replace the smoking habit with another then you are no better off.  So chewing gum, eating peppermints or other sweats or sticking shit behind your ears will not help.  Drinking psychotic drugs adapted to stop people from smoking is another problem.  The side effects of stuff like Zyban brings with it a fate worse than the one you want "cure"

WARNING

NEUROPSYCHIATRIC REACTIONS; AND SUICIDAL THOUGHTS AND BEHAVIORS

Neuropsychiatric Reactions In Patients Taking Bupropion For Smoking Cessation

Serious neuropsychiatric reactions have occurred in patients taking ZYBAN for smoking cessation [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS]. The majority of these reactions occurred during bupropion treatment, but some occurred in the context of discontinuing treatment. In many cases, a causal relationship to bupropion treatment is not certain, because depressed mood may be a symptom of nicotine withdrawal. However, some of the cases occurred in patients taking ZYBAN who continued to smoke.

The risks of ZYBAN should be weighed against the benefits of its use. ZYBAN has been demonstrated to increase the likelihood of abstinence from smoking for as long as 6 months compared with treatment with placebo. The health benefits of quitting smoking are immediate and substantial.

Suicidality And Antidepressant Drugs

Although ZYBAN is not indicated for treatment of depression, it contains the same active ingredient as the antidepressant medications WELLBUTRIN , ® WELLBUTRIN® SR, and WELLBUTRIN XL®. Antidepressants increased the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior in children, adolescents, and young adults in short-term trials. These trials did not show an increase in the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior with antidepressant use in subjects over age 24; there was a reduction in risk with antidepressant use in subjects aged 65 and older [see WARNINGS AND PRECAUTIONS].

In patients of all ages who are started on antidepressant therapy, monitor closely for worsening, and for emergence of suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Advise families and caregivers of the need for close observation and communication with the prescriber [see WARNINGS ANDPRECAUTIONS].

I looked up the stats some time ago and the US is low on the list of smoking countries yet has higher rates of lung cancer. It's probably not just one thing that gets you but the accumulation of toxins from air, food and diminishing water quality. I wonder if European countries produce ciggies with the same additives and carpet glue that is a standard in the US. Anyone that smokes indoors knows it's unhealthy because all the furnishings and carpet reek! If you wash the walls down you'll find a brown film in your wash bucket.

The thing that is most disturbing is all the propaganda associated with it. Smokers are now second class citizens and cannot light up within so many feet of their workplace. Then there is second hand smoke paranoia. Holy crap, how did any of us survive with parents that smoked? Obviously, common sense prevails when babies, children and non-smokers are present....like don't fan it in their faces. If there is one thing for sure, smoking wasn't banned because .gov cares about it's citizens. Maybe it's about insurance and if I remember correctly, the people that manufacture the gum and patches are in league with the likes of Philip Morris. Oh, smoking is still allowed in the halls of congress. Go figure.

So, if you ask why it's so important to quit then it brings us back to the lizard people. :chuckle:

Radioactive polonium in cigarette smoke

Cigarette smoke has been called many things – smelly, dangerous and cancer-causing for a start. But radioactive? Yes, that too. Tobacco smoke contains a radioactive chemical element called polonium-210. It’s the same substance that poisoned the Russian Alexander Litvinenko in London two years ago.

Now, a new study reported in the Independent and to be published in the American Journal of Public Health suggests that tobacco companies have known about the danger of polonium in cigarette smoke for over 40 years. Monique Muggli, who led the review, examined over 1,500 internal documents from tobacco companies. Most of these have never been published and were made available through legal action.

15 Shocking Facts About Smoking

Statistically, the chemicals in tobacco are far less dangerous than most people think, and the numbers don’t exactly add up. However, scientists have determined that tobacco is so bad for you because it’s actually radioactive. In the 1930’s farmers began using a cheap fertilizer called apatite, which causes the tobacco to taste sweet, but also has uranium in it. By inhaling the smoke from this apatite, we inhale radioactive particles, severely damaging our body and organs. 

Tobacco in its natural form, not processed cigarettes, has very different qualities than the tobacco Americans consume today. Tobacco that can cause hallucinations are the strains that Native Americans used to, and still do, smoke. What exactly is different from this tobacco? 

There are chemicals in the tobacco plant called harmala alkaloids, harman and norharman. They’re hallucinogens that can cause intense hallucinations. The reason the tobacco that we smoke does not cause this is because it is so processed that the harmala alkaloids are usually inadvertently removed. Also, the tobacco that Native Americans and South American tribes smoke is much more potent and they consume much more of it at a time, which, when the harmala alkaloids reach the brain through inhalation, cause visions to blur and the mind to be warped.

This tobacco was used by wise men throughout history such as shamans to gain wisdom and increase spiritual development. It was an extremely spiritual practice that allowed the wise men to expand their minds and consider the world from many different points of view. Although we cannot reach this level from smoking cigarettes, if you were to travel to South America and consume the tobacco strains that have been carefully cultivated for hundreds of years, the effects would be shocking.

As the WHO also notes, Po-210 is “5,000 times as radioactive as uranium.” Which leads me to the other interesting point in this fact sheet. It was produced in 2006, shortly after the Litvinenko poisoning and it answers a key question about exposure by association:

The Tobacco Conspiracy

A history of the tobacco industry's lies and scams. From the US in 1953 to Africa today, the controversy between individual responsibility and corporate greed is portrayed in a lucid, undaunted manner.

From scientific frauds to working with organized crime, tobacco companies show their hidden agenda more clearly than ever in this theatrically released documentary.

More than three years of investigating all over the world has allowed Nadia Collot to decipher the attitudes of an industry that, in spite of many prevention campaigns still expands its power at the cost of public health. Three aspects of industry behavior are studied: vid
