(NaturalNews) Smoking is a habit associated with numerous diseases, and the labels on cigarettes will soon more accurately reflect this. Obama recently signed a measure that might update warnings on cigarette packs to stronger and more accurate messages, like Smoking Causes Cancer and Smoking Kills. Graphic images of cancers and other diseases caused by smoking will be on the packages as well; they will be required to be on half of the pack when the measure takes effect.
News reports are calling the images to be used "gruesome," and their purpose is to detour people from starting the disease-creating habit and encourage them to quit smoking if they've already started.
But what's really gruesome is that twenty percent of the population legally uses a widely available product that creates such disease in the body. Are artists' graphic images really that gruesome? Or are the actual diseases in real bodies? Most would agree that it's the actual diseases, although we are visually spared the gore of many diseases in the body because our skin covers them from view.
The truth is, you just have to look at all of the diseases caused by smoking to understand a whole lot more about the causes of disease in general.
Smoking is known to cause heart disease, cancers that can be anywhere in the body, lung diseases, breathing problems, sexual dysfunction, clogged and blocked arteries to the point where limps may be amputated, infertility, wrinkling, birth defects, and many more.
So, what is it about smoking that causes so many diseases?
Most people will answer that it's the chemicals in the cigarettes that are the culprit, and they would be correct. There are almost 600 known toxic chemicals allowed in cigarettes, and 4,000 dangerous chemical compounds in the smoke. And the problems above, the diseases caused by smoking, are exactly what you get when you have large amounts of toxic chemicals trapped inside the body. Because while the body can detoxify itself, it can't do anywhere near the job that is required when it's being so actively polluted.
No one really doubts that all of the chemicals taken into the body from smoking cigarettes regularly cause disease and problems. Rather, it's seen as a fundamental and obvious fact. But many still don't get that even if you don't smoke, you're still bombarded by many chemicals in the world today.
Toxic, man-made chemicals are omnipresent in most diets, personal care products and lifestyles, and they are largely unavoidable in our environment. As a society, we're also bombarded with health problems. However, you'd think we'd be a little faster to make the connection.
Kim Evans is a natural health writer and author of Cleaning Up! The Ultimate Body Cleanse. Cleaning Up! offers deep cleansing and using methods in this book, people have gotten rid of dozens of different types of health problems, as well as just losing excess weight, thinking more clearly, and feeling better.
Kim's next book chronicles events in her life that happen to match patterns in the Bible. She's also found three places in the Bible that tell us its about these patterns and even asking you to match them. Here's a little from the upcoming book... In Isaiah 22:20, it says, "And it must occur in that day that I will call my servant, namely Eliakim." But, because these prophecies are cryptic and they aren't meant to be understood until they are understood, it's only the last three letters. A few lines later, it says, "From the land of Kittim it has been revealed to them." Here, you just take out any three middle letters, and again, it's the name of the person bringing you this message, or the sacred secret of the prophecy. Actually, if you take those two passages, Kim is about the only name you can get from both of them. In Numbers 1:1 – 1:18, it's talking about "the family" and mentions Pagiel. It also twice mentions February 1st, (Kim's birthday) and then says that the youngest is 20 years old. Kim's little sister Paige is currently 20 years old. In Chronicles 1 11:20 it mentions the brother of Joab and then in the same sentence uses the word brandishing. Kim's middle name is Jo and her older sister's name is Brandi. There are other patterns to her sisters too but these sort of mention them by name. Of course, it helps if you know that there is a magical spiritual reality available that comes deep cleansing and often major dietary upgrades. It's also why Jesus was teaching the same thing, if you find his teachings in the Essene Gospel of Peace. In this text, he even says things like, "You'll never see the father unless you clean your colon." But, this is paraphrased... In the Bible Jesus says things more like, happy are those who wash their robes, as they can enter the tree of life. The tree of life is elsewhere explained as God's paradise. He also said, first clean the inside of the cup and then the outside will also be clean. Kim's book Cleaning Up! is here http://www.cleaningupcleanse.com.
