SMOKE THAT CIGARETTE

This is a very curious report from Australian researchers.

First, understand this-- Many traditional cultures (read that backward cultures) of the world smoke heavily, AND they almost all have little or no lung cancer.

Why'

Answer: They raise their own tobacco which is not baptized in pesticides, Round Up, and chemicals added by the tobacco processing companies.

US and world base regulatory agencies, as well as the FDA and USDA, will never look into this because of the cash cow in smoking products by very high tax on them.

Thus, we are on our own here.

 

Men Who Smoke at Lower Risk of Joint Replacement

FRIDAY, July 8,2012 (HealthDay News)

It is well-known that smoking is unhealthy, yet men who smoke are less likely than nonsmokers to require total hip or knee replacement, according to a new study.

The researchers also found that being overweight or doing vigorous physical activity increased the likelihood of joint replacement.

In the study, Australian researchers analyzed the medical records of 11,388 men who were followed from 1996-1999 to March 2007. During that time, 857 of the men had either total knee replacement (59 percent) or total hip replacement (41 percent).

The investigators found that being overweight independently increased the risk of total joint replacement, while smoking lowered the risk. This reduced risk was most evident after 23 years of smoking, and men who smoked 48 years or more were up to 51 percent less likely to undergo joint replacement than men who never smoked, the study showed.

The University of Adelaide researchers also found that vigorous exercise increased the risk of joint replacement in men aged 70 to 74, according to the study published in the July 8 online edition of the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism.

"Our study is the first to demonstrate a strong inverse correlation between smoking duration and risk of total joint replacement. The independent inverse associations of smoking with risk of total joint replacement were evident also after adjusting for major confounders and after accounting for the competing mortality risk in this elderly [group] of men," study author George Mnatzaganian, a Ph.D. student, said in a journal news release. "Further investigation is needed to determine how smoking impacts the development of osteoarthritis."

According to the 2007 National Hospital Discharge Survey, about 230,000 Americans had hip replacements and 543,000 had knee replacements that year. Severe osteoarthritis was the most common reason for the procedures.

If you are smoking commercial tobacco, you have a death wish. Even alleged "Organic" tobacco will not be properly regulated by the USDA. The only tobacco you can believe is organic is the tobacco YOU grow yourself. There is much online on growing and processing tobacco, so it is rather easy. You can buy your heirloom tobacco seed at Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.

I also have to wonder if a safer way to get the health benefit from tobacco would be the nicotine patches used by people trying to break a smoking habit. The problem is that the research above made no effort to find alternatives to inhaling it.

This is definitely a Do It Yourself proposition, and I would have to totally disclaim anything here. However, I also may look into this for my wife and I. I am not growing tobacco here in Texas Hill Country, and it thrived this first time. I bought heirloom seed- Louisiana Piroque. Piroque has something to do with boats in French, so I have no idea what that connection is.

It also flowers very nicely, and some varieties are very fragrant. It would make a beautiful accent along a back fence or in from of a home. It grows tall and full, and it is a lovely green color. It also makes a great bug killer when boiled.

It is a felony to sell tobacco leaves or seedlings. But, as near as I can determine, you can sell a whole plant cut off at the ground for some sort of agricultural use. And, you can sell the seed. You should check this yourself before you venture into selling anything from tobacco because the BATF goes into a total panic with anyone selling tobacco products without a license. The tax money they get drives them to manic behavior to stop even the least offensive transactions.
