Cigarettes: Inhaling Dangerous Chemicals may Cause Depression

(NaturalNews) A new study recently found that about half of the people with diagnosed depression smoke cigarettes. It's a large percentage and while the cause and effect relationship wasn't studied, it should have been. It wasn't even looked at whether these folks were depressed before they began smoking - because more than likely many of them weren't.

More than 4,000 chemicals are in cigarette smoke and 69 of them are known to cause cancer. Some of the chemicals include: carbon monoxide (which kills if you breathe enough of it), arsenic, hydrogen cyanide (a gas chamber poison), methoprene (a pesticide), freon (which damages the earth's ozone layer to say the least of what it does inside humans), tar (used to make roads), formaldehyde (used to preserve dead bodies), butane (cigarette lighter fuel), and cyanide.

Cigarette smoke also contains lead and cadmium - and both of these heavy metals are strongly correlated with depression. Lead in the body is infamous for its ability to damage the brain and nervous system. It's also connected with having a lower IQ - so it makes us less intelligent as well. Cadmium is well known to damage the brain and nervous system - and create disease in the liver and kidneys. Both of these metals build inside the bodies of smokers and unless steps are taken to remove them, they'll remain inside long after the exposure has stopped. The lead in cigarettes has a half life of over 22 years.

To add to the destruction, cigarette smoke contains radioactive polonium. Lead and polonium end up in cigarettes from the phosphate fertilizers that the tobacco industry regularly uses. According to the EPA, lead and polonium pass into the lungs of smokers where they can accumulate in very high concentrations. By mass, the polonium in cigarette smoke is about 250,000 times more toxic than hydrogen cyanide - which remember is a gas chamber agent.

These are a handful of the chemicals that enter the body with each puff and it's striking that so few people realize that the regular inhalation of such toxic chemicals can make a person feel depressed - especially after years of accumulation. If you have trouble understanding that poisons in the body can make you feel badly emotionally, as it seems much of the medical community does, it's helpful to look at an example that might be more familiar. Think about this: Are children more likely to be grouchy when they're sick or feeling well? Most people acknowledge that people are more likely to feel badly emotionally when they're dealing with the effects of just a bacteria or virus. But with smoking, we're dealing with the effects of lead, polonium, arsenic, and even cyanide.

However, the really unfortunate thing about failing to look at the cause is that it also inhibits our understanding of the solution. Many newspapers are reporting the connection between smoking and depression but they're talking about using anti-depressant drugs for these people. Since many antidepressants carry a black box warning highlighting their tendency to promote suicidal behavior, they hardly seem the right choice for anyone who's already feeling crummy.

Plus, when you understand that it's more than likely the accumulation of toxic chemicals and metals inside of people that's causing the problem, the adding of more chemicals becomes a ridiculous solution. In contrast, taking steps to remove the chemicals that are already lodged inside becomes rather logical.

The researchers found:
Half of depressed women aged 20 to 39 smoked.
Forty-three percent of depressed women between 40 and 54 smoked.
Forty-three percent of depressed adults over 20 smoked.
Over half of depressed men aged 40 to 54 were current smokers.

About the author

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.
