Smoking vs. Increased risk of lung cancer

Most people know that smoking greatly increases the risk of lung cancer, coronary heart disease, and respiratory diseases. According to research, people who smoke more are at a higher risk of covid-19 than older people.

The head of the Turkish Anti-Addiction Group also confirmed to a private agency that smokers can be 14 times more affected by the coronavirus and have a higher risk of dying. Professor Mokihat Ozturk, president of the anti-addiction group Turkish Crescent, urged smokers to quit smoking to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Ozturk added that the use of tobacco and its products increases the risk of contracting the coronavirus.

Therefore, avoiding tobacco and other narcotics can play an important role in preventing this virus. According to medical research, people who smoke heavily have a higher risk of dying from the virus than the elderly. The human body naturally begins to recover when a person quits smoking. Remember that constant smoking weakens the human immune system, which has a negative effect on the treatment of Covid-19. A weakened immune system is a threat to human health because it delays the healing process, especially during epidemics. In this case, the occasional use of drugs can also be dangerous. The World Health Organization (WHO) has also expressed concern that smokers may be more susceptible to coronavirus. The fingers of smokers constantly touch the lips, which increases the chances of the germs being transmitted through the hands to the mouth and then to the body. Tobacco products such as shared waterpipes can also spread the virus to people.

Since its first appearance in Wuhan, China, last December, the covid-19 has spread to at least 209 countries around the world and beyond. According to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University in the United States, there are about 2.2 million reported cases of coronavirus worldwide, with more than 147,000 deaths. But the negative effects of smoking are not limited to the lungs but can affect the whole body.

World No-Tobacco Day is observed on May 31 every year across the country to prevent the millions of deaths caused by the habit each year. A 2018 study found that tobacco contains more than 7,000 chemicals, of which at least 69 can cause cancer and other diseases. When these chemicals are inhaled, they travel from the lungs to the bloodstream and from there to other parts of the body, affecting health. You may be aware of the many disadvantages of smoking, but one of its effects is known to very few people and that is hair loss.

Yes, it is not entirely clear what smoking has to do with hair loss, but there can be several factors involved. How does smoking cause hair loss? Smoking can damage the hair follicles, which can increase the risk of baldness.

A study in 2020 included men between the ages of 20 and 35, some of whom were addicted to smoking and some who avoided it. The problem of hair loss was compared between the two groups. The researchers found that 85% smokers had experienced some degree of hair loss, while only 40% smokers had such problems. The researchers said that the nicotine and related chemicals in tobacco could possibly accelerate the rate of hair loss, but also stressed the need for further research to confirm this.

Here are some other ways to lose hair from this habit. Oxidative stress Smoking accelerates the formation of harmful molecules in the body and damages the DNA of cells. Oxidative stress occurs when the amount of these harmful molecules in the body is greatly increased. The main causes of oxidative stress are smoking, pollution, radiation and ultraviolet rays. Decreased blood flow to the hair follicles and the chemicals in tobacco affect health and the substance begins to accumulate in the arteries, which increases the risk of blood clots, heart attack and stroke. Infection of the blood vessels also affects the blood supply to the hair follicles, which can lead to hair loss or damage. Other reasons Smoking causes a number of changes in the body, such as increased levels of proteins that increase the level of inflammation, and damage to the hair follicles as the amount of these proteins increases.

Changes in the levels of enzymes that control hair growth. Other effects of smoking on the hair One study found a link between smoking habits and graying hair before the age of 30. Decreased blood supply to the hair follicles affects the process of making a hormone called collagen and the hair becomes full. The oxidative stress caused by smoking accelerates the aging of hair and dries hair in youth as it does in middle age or old age. Is it possible to compensate for this hair loss? If a person gets rid of the habit of smoking, it is possible to reverse the
effect of some of the harms to the body. However, it is clear whether the damage caused by smoking can be reversed, but if the hair has fallen out too much, it is more likely that it will not grow back.
