Secondhand smoke triggers nicotine cravings.

A research published in the May 2 issue of the Archives of General Psychiatry,Guest Posting and funded by the U.S. National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), exposed that secondhand smoke directly affects the human brain just like how actual smokers are affected by it.  That is, exposure to secondhand smoke eventually causes craving for nicotine, and may need Canadian prescription drugs to alleviate such addiction.

With the aid of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scans, scientist found out that even an hour of exposure to secondhand smoke inside a fully closed place permits nicotine to access the brain, and link with receptors which is usually experienced by direct tobacco smokers.

"These results show that even limited secondhand smoke exposure delivers enough nicotine to the brain to alter its function," NIDA director, Dr. Nora D. Volkow highlighted. "Chronic or severe exposure could result in even higher brain nicotine levels, which may explain why secondhand smoke exposure increases vulnerability to nicotine addiction."  In lieu, doctors may prescribe certain Canada drugs in order to stop the hazardous nicotine craving.

Further, per U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, secondhand smoke triggers death of approximately 50,000 individuals every year in the United States.  U.S. Surgeon General came into conclusion that secondhand smoke brought numerous critical health predicaments among non-smokers, which include the following:

·         heart disease

·         lung cancer

·         sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS)

·         respiratory infections

·         severe asthma

"This study gives concrete evidence to support policies that ban smoking in public places, particularly enclosed spaces and around children," stated by Dr. Arthur Brody of the Department of Psychiatry & Biobehavioral Sciences at the University of California, Los Angeles. 

Indeed, it is a great feat to ban smoking in public places to protect the health of non-smokers, and lessen the number of people taking Canadian drugs for their medication.
