Besides the poisons and chemicals, we enter more dangerous bacteria from the smoke of the cigarettes ! It is known that cigarettes are harmful to human health in many ways, but the latest research reveals that hundreds of bacteria that can cause a large number of infections and chronic illnesses are inhaled and ingested during smoking.
Previous research has focused on the impact of chemicals in cigarettes and particles that occur in tobacco burning. New research first puts bacteria that are found in tobacco, suggesting that they may be a potential source of disease.
Smoking hurts almost all organs in the human body. The chemicals and heavy metals found in cigarettes, which are about 3,000, are most responsible for all the bad effects on human health – lung cancer and chronic respiratory diseases, colds, flu, asthma, bacterial pneumonia.
Scientists have found that the amount of bacteria in cigarettes varies from producer to producer. The research has shown that more than 700 species of bacteria are found in tobacco. Amy Sapcota, an epidemiologist at the University of Meriland, who led the study, thinks the figure is larger and that there are actually 1,000 types of bacteria.
According to her, unprocessed, green tobacco has few bacteria, but in the course of production and fermentation, the number of bacteria increases. Instead of being removed, the bacteria in this process multiply. It has been found that harmful pathogenic organisms are present in 90% of cigarettes offered to smokers on the market. Most commonly that occur are bacteria Acinetobacter, Bacillus, Burkholderia, Clostridium, Klebsiella, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Serratia, Campylobacter, Enterococcus, Proteus and Staphylococcus.
What scientists fear is that dead bacteria can produce endotoxins that create cells and cause infections. With this, it is believed that harmful chemicals and bacteria from cigarettes together can accelerate cancer cells to become malignant.
