Smoking Cigerettes Causes Depression

Video Description

"(NaturalNews) A new study recently found that about half of the people with diagnosed depression smoke cigarettes. It's a large percentage and while the cause and effect relationship wasn't studied, it should have been. It wasn't even looked at whether these folks were depressed before they began smoking - because more than likely many of them weren't.

More than 4,000 chemicals are in cigarette smoke and 69 of them are known to cause cancer. Some of the chemicals include: carbon monoxide (which kills if you breathe enough of it), arsenic, hydrogen cyanide (a gas chamber poison), methoprene (a pesticide), freon (which damages the earth's ozone layer to say the least of what it does inside humans), tar (used to make roads), formaldehyde (used to preserve dead bodies), butane (cigarette lighter fuel), and cyanide.

Cigarette smoke also contains lead and cadmium - and both of these heavy metals are strongly correlated with depression. Lead in the body is infamous for its ability to damage the brain and nervous system. It's also connected with having a lower IQ - so it makes us less intelligent as well. Cadmium is well known to damage the brain and nervous system - and create disease in the liver and kidneys. Both of these metals build inside the bodies of smokers and unless steps are taken to remove them, they'll remain inside long after the exposure has stopped. The lead in cigarettes has a half life of over 22 years.

"My story starts 36 years ago. Still to this day I have trouble believing I became a smoker. Both of my parents smoked. I hated that, and was continually waving away the smoke, hiding their cigarettes, and complaining."
