Disgusting Photos On Packs of Cigarettes to Encourage Quitting

Isn’t it interesting how smokers will continue to smoke despite the warnings from their doctors, friends and family members? I think we’ve all seen disgusting photos of what smoking does to our lungs and yet we continue to smoke. You want to quit, but the addiction is too strong.

When you see those disgusting photos, it really makes you want to quit right? You don’t want that diseased black lung at the museum to be yours. It’s for this reason that the FDA wants to start placing disgusting photos on packs of cigarettes.

Yup, right on the pack.

This means every time a smoker pulls out that pack of cigarettes to grab a smoke, they get to see an image of a body, post-autopsy. Or a message saying “Smoking can kill you.”

Now that the FDA has more power to regulate the marketing of the tobacco industry, these are just a few of the plans the FDA has in store for “big tobacco.”

I hope these ideas come to fruition and happen soon. The sooner we can get people to quit smoking, the better.

If you want an alternative to smoking, consider vaping. Buy an electronic cigarette from South Beach Smoke.

Prevent Lung Cancer Caused By Smoking By Eating Fruits and Vegetables

Dr. William Li recently gave a speech at a Ted Conference where he spoke about a new treatment for cancer. The treatment inhibits angiogenesis, the growth of blood vessels, and has had great success rates on a variety of cancers. Sadly, lung cancer isn’t one of them, but Dr. Li still offered some great news for smokers.

It turns out that there are actually lots of foods and drinks which can help prevent cancer before it progresses into a deadly disease.

  • Green Tea
  • Strawberries
  • Blackberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blueberries
  • Oranges
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemons
  • Apples
  • Pineapple
  • Cherries
  • Red Grapes
  • Red Wine
  • Bok Choy
  • Kale
  • Soy Beans
  • Ginseng
  • Maitake Mushroom
  • Licorice
  • Turmeric
  • Nutmeg
  • Artichokes
  • Lavender
  • Pumpkin
  • Sea Cucumber
  • Tuna
  • Parsley
  • Garlic
  • Tomato
  • Olive Oil
  • Grape Seed Oil
  • Dark Chocolate

All of the foods above are antiangiogenesis and have various levels of potency. By smoking, you may have already caused the mutation of DNA in your blood cells to the point where they may form into cancer later in life. You should do what you can now to prevent it.
