Study: Smoking tobacco ‘rots’ the brain
Monday, November 26, 2012


It’s well known that smoking cigarettes has many adverse affects on the body, but it may come as a surprise to some that it also has some pronounced effects on how the brain functions as well.

http://ageing.oxfordjournals.org/content/earl...

In a study published Sunday in the scientific journal Age and Aging, researchers discovered that regular exposure to tobacco smoke caused significant declines in cognitive performance among older people who had elevated cardiovascular risk factors like high blood pressure.

A study published by Archives of Internal Medicine in 2010 similarly found a link between cigarettes and a more than 150 percent increase in the likelihood of Alzheimer’s and vascular dementia.

The Centers for Disease Control said in 2010 that 21 percent of Americans — about 46 million — smoke cigarettes regularly. According to The Harvard School of Public Health, cigarettes remain the number one cause of preventable deaths in the U.S., responsible for more than 400,000 deaths per year.

We weren't allowed to smoke in school; however, as the student of educators, I smoked in the bathroom just to get caught. I remain a rebel.
Well, that was in the 1960's and 70's!!

Y'know, the good old days when teachers hit the girls on the legs with the stick and boys on the hands and the boys had to swim naked while taking swimming classes at the boys club!!
And girls had to wear skirts or dresses even in a snowstorm, we could wear snowpants under our dresses and hang them up in the "cloakroom"!!

Oh yes; the rightwingers love their Christmas stories:
Gun club owner:‘Holiday tradition’ for kids to hold machine guns in Santa photos
The general manager of the Scottsdale Gun Club in Arizona is defending his organization’s “Santa machine gun event” as a “holiday tradition.”
Ron Kennedy on Monday told Fox News that his gun club was simply trying to “add a little holiday spirit into people’s Second Amendment rights” when it began allowing members to bring their children to take photos with Santa Claus and firearms three years ago.
Raw Story ( http://s.tt/1uRoD )
A couple of years back, InSession featured a trial where some kid went freaky deaky and blew himself away with a machine gun at one of those holiday fund raising gun show gatherings.

Massachusetts vs Fleury iirc.

As an agnostic, I have my own feelings. However, if I don't what to see the nativity scene, then I look the other way! My opinion - they are a symbol of the holiday season like wreaths, greenery, colored lights, etc. I don't care to worship in a church, so I make the decision not to go. However, this doesn't mean I don't feel churches should be banned.
When does it stop? My rights should not inflict on the rights of others, and in a likewise manner your rights should not inflict on mine. You like to smoke? Fine! However, I will excuse myself from a situation if you decide to light up because I don't choose to smell like your smoke. I don't care to own a gun (red-headed with quick temper - not a good idea). However, that doesn't mean you can't own a gun. If I were to learn the fetus I carry will not survive in the world without many surgeries, will need tube feedings and similar treatments to sustain its life, it is MY decision to terminate the pregnancy. My fetus, my body, my decision.
I think it all falls back to having respect and honor for other human beings.
When you surrender another person's rights to the government, expect your rights to be surrendered next.

You're probably around my age then, I'm 57. Everyone smoked then
(not in my family though) except for my brother who went to the Korean war and came back a smoker, I remember those packs of Chesterfields!!
Ever watch Mad Men? Everyone smokes, that's the way it was.

With the fiscal cliff looming for the United States, some Republican members of Congress said Sunday they are ready to break a long standing pledge not to raise taxes.
"The only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid becoming Greece. And Republicans should put revenue on the table," South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on ABC's "This Week."
Read more of the discussion of the fiscal on "This Week" today.
Graham's comments followed those by another Republican senator, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, who said last week he'll no longer abide by the pledge.
"I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge," he said in a local interview.
He got support today from House member Peter King, another Republican from New York.
"I agree entirely with Saxby Chambliss -- a pledge he signed 20 years ago, 18 years ago is for that Congress," King said on NBC's "Meet the Press." He added, "The world is changed and the economic situation is different."

Republicans are coming apart at the seams.
"Revenue" and tax rates are not the same thing.

And they will not agree to more revenue without spending reductions.

Homer would never be so forward.
I read a person's name and draw my own conclusions.

Take Carol for instance, definitely female, unless one thinks Carroll O'Connor playing Archie Bunker, hmmm so in that sense I suppose Carol could be a man.

Of course Peppy could be female name until you read his posts and then just assume he is a little light in the loafers.

I think I've digressed far enough.

What was the question?

Sigh, if only Bush hadn't stolen the election in 2000 we might have continued the 8 year of peace and prosperity we had enjoyed under Clinton.
But alas.
Hang on I have to grab a tissue, I always shed a tear when I think back to the 2000 election and what might have been
Gee Whiz Homer, that complete screed is a fabrication. Bush has been gone for almost four years, when is your boy going to step up? But, but, he never had a real job, actually never had a job.. But you voted him into the highest office with no experience, who has egg on their face??
How did Bush steal the election? You keep beating that dead horse? Explain?

55. And yeah they hit us with rulers, their hands, pointers, you name it. An angry bunch of women. Both my parents smoked, Lucky Strikes and Pall Mall. My father passed a long time ago but my mother is 81 and still smokes! We took her in with us 3 years ago so she has cut down alot,,we give her a hard time, but she'll never give em up. Mad Men is exactly what it used to be like. Brings back memories.
