Tabak kan sepsis voorkomen

De actieve component van goedkope sigaretten kan de veel voorkomende en potentieel dodelijk ziekte Sepsis voorkomen.


Sepsis ontstaat wanneer het immuunsysteem ongeremd en massaal reageert op een ontsteking.


Cigarette smokers can now take heart. Here’s some encouraging news to warm the hearts of cigarette aficionados!


The active ingredient in tobacco may actually have a beneficial effect on the body in treating a common and potentially deadly type of infection process known as sepsis, new research shows.


Sepsis is the third leading cause of death in developed countries and accounts for nearly nine per cent of deaths in the U.S. each year. The condition begins as an infection that activates the entire immune system to an exaggerated degree.


The immune system then sets off a chain of events that can lead to uncontrolled inflammation in the body, shock, and eventually death.


Until recently, the only way doctors could treat sepsis was with powerful antibiotics and other supportive care. In 2001, the drug Xigris became the first available therapy for sepsis and has been shown to reduce the risk of death due to the condition.


But now there is encouraging news that tobacco, the raw ingredient in cheap cigarettes is good for the treatment options for sepsis.


Cigarettes at cheap may help treat sepsis

  • I've alllllllways said that asking smokers "do you want to quit?" and reporting the results of that question, as is, is horribly misleading. It's a TWO part question. After asking if one wants to quit it must be followed up with "Why?" Ask why and the majority of the answers will be "because I'm supposed to" (victims of guilt and propaganda), not "because I want to."
