Thread: Is nicotine "alone" bad for you?

  1. #1

    Default Is nicotine "alone" bad for you?

    http://www.google.com/#hl=en&safe=of...edebf4d2ba1424

    I've read through several things that came up on google.
    sure smoking is bad...so nicotine gets a bad rep...

    there is the benefits as usual to nicotine, but is nicotine alone bad for your heart and blood vessels?

    any insight on this topic is appreciated.


    edit:
    interested article on nictine and how it may be good for you

    This was a pretty good read:

    "The effects of nicotine itself are similar to that other popular drug, caffeine. See our (nicotine reading list.) There is no evidence that nicotine causes any substantial risk for cancer, and the research shows that the risk for cardiovascular disease is minimal. The confusion about nicotine comes from anti-smoking activists talking about nicotine and smoking as if they were the same. While it is true that people smoke mostly because of nicotine; nicotine users die mostly because of the smoke. "

    also remember, it is a poison and is used as a very powerful - very effective industrial pesticide.. so while, in small quantities - it is about as harmful s caffeine.. but understand it is a poison and it can kill you..

    but so can caffeine.. how much caffeine can kill you?

    Yah its a biased article...But you have to know BOTH sides of the extreme to ever even be able to guess at the truth

    Even in adults nicotine is a "big player" in the harm caused by cigarettes. One of the chemicals nicotine is transformed into is NNK, one of the most potent lung cancer causing chemical of all. Recent data suggests that nicotine also adds to cancer risks by preventing apoptosis (normal programmed cell death), and by inducing angiogenesis (the creation of new blood vessels) which nourish, feed and accelerate existing tumor growth rates
    Nicotine is not only a "big player" with cancer risks but has been linked to hardening of the arteries and cardiovascular disease, memory impairment, dementia, and chronic depression

    How dangerous something is depends on the concentration. Take IRON for example you have it in your blood BUT if you get too much of it it SQUASHES you !
