All these chemicals are everywhere. It is high dosages that cause problems. Do cigarettes contribute much more of a dosage of these that what is
already around us?
Long time secret-Since most of the black community in this area that do smoke use menthols. I was told once from a co-worker to smoke a few menthols
since I was horribly congested and the meds from the Dr. were not working. Guess what I was clear the next day. It is a nasty process but, all the
phlegm loosened and came up. Even though I don't regularly smoke for a long time I do still pick up menthols whenever I get chest congestion and it
is gone the next day as always.
It is moderation though. If you drink a shot of vodka every morning it is good for you. There is a huge difference if you drink a pint a day. You have
a problem and your health will be affected. If a person smokes a few a day vs someone that smokes several packs a day there is a difference. If you
eat a doughnut every day it is far different than someone that eats a box or two of doughnuts for a meal.
