The increase in the rates of diabetes has dramatically increased in the last several years. It is noted that as of 2017, over 100 MILLION American adults are living with Diabetes or Pre-Diabetes. Of course, this is a major problem not only for the health of each individual, but also the survival of our current healthcare system – which also a problem with rising costs for care.
It’s estimated that over 75 MILLION Americans have hypertension. That’s 1 in 3 people (if you are in a room with two other people, at LEAST one of you has high blood pressure). Only about 1/2 of those people have blood pressures that are controlled.
Worldwide, the number of smokers has increased, but here in the US the number has decreased. Before you get too happy… the use of e-cigs has increased, which brings up concerns for potential threats and new health hazards that are mostly unknown.
Tobacco use and hypertension are the top two causes for PREVENTABLE mortality worldwide.
The direct affect of cigarettes on hypertension and diabetes are largely unknown, but what we do know is that the impact – both short and long-term – is negative.
Cigarette smoking causes free radicals to increase, antioxidant levels to decrease, blood flow to be compromised, plaque formation to increase, and organ function to diminish. This all spells PROBLEMS.
