What is in the cigarettes are you smoking besides tobacco? Seriously, if you are a smoker you probably have no idea what kind of toxins you are inhaling. Every puff that a smoker takes he or she is depositing not only nicotine into their body but toxic heavy metals as well. The highly addictive nicotine is providing a bit of relief from the heavy metal overload. Therefore, it should not be too much of a shock that smoking is not just bad for you, it is dangerous to your overall physical health along with mental health. Some of the heavy metals and toxic elements found in cigarettes are lead, antimony, nickel carbonyl, and cadmium.
Mike Adams aka The Health Ranger says that cadmium is one of the most fascinating of heavy metals. Cadmium damages the kidneys, skin, lungs, bones and causes personality changes. Cadmium can give a surge of energy as efficient as coffee (Cadmium is also in coffee), which is why coffee is also addictive. Cadmium may be harmful to heart health as it tends to harden the arteries. Also, Speaking of hardening, people who have a cadmium overload and addiction are usually “hardened” in personality meaning they are easily agitated; they may often be angry and scream a lot. Smoking seems to go further than just health and lung cancer; it is also affecting the brain and causing aggressive personalities linked to Cadmium toxicity. If you are a smoker, I want to encourage you to get the help you need to quit smoking.
