Suffering

Life is so precious and everything we go through or do leaves us better or worse. Suffering is part of our life and until we embrace it we will never seize being devastated and frustrated. Most of the people who wallow in it end up adapting to miserable lives which we all can avoid. I do agree with the first noble truth; it is not settled that we should suffer all our lives. I believe suffering is a choice and it takes perseverance and patience to adapt from suffering. Additionally, Craving may institute suffering at some point. When we crave for anything, and we do not have the ability and strength to acquire it we up suffering psychologically.

Nonetheless, our minds are the substance of our daily suffering. It should be clear that to come out of the shackles of suffering we have to control our minds and also live a fulfilling life.  Moreover, if we have the capability to work hard to meet our needs, we will for sure freeing ourselves from suffering. The theory of reincarnation is based on the fact that some memories and characteristics of our past are transferred or moved to those who we are close to. Apparently, this may sound right but it is a myth that most of the people in the world believe in. Our parent does not have the same temperaments as do. In that light, I do support that the theory should not be taken seriously since it does not lay enough evidence.

The proverb “like father, like son,” always lives unanswered questions. Most of us think that the characters, behavior, and morals we possess are embedded in our parents which are a Myth. Everyone is different and their perspective about life also differs. Sometimes perseverance and patience does pay and further strengthens the victim. If the victim ends up in the same situation again he or she ends up handling it with minimal struggle. Moreover, there is no success without struggle. In that light, we should plan and prepare for activates we undertake which will, in turn, affect our success positively. Ignorance should be avoided at all cost since it brings much suffering.

Vaping Can Damage Your Body

 

When smoking becomes a problem due to addiction, many smokers experience issues when trying to stop the habit. If possible, quitting smoking is what smokers can best do to themselves to boost their health. Every organ in our bodies is important. Heart, lungs and the liver are the major casualties of cigarette smoke. One-third of deaths resulting from heart diseases are from active smoking and passive smoking, shocking?

One might be tempted to turn to smoke e-cigarettes (electronic cigarettes). Reason being that most smokers think that e-cigarettes make it easier for them to transit from tobacco smoking to eventually stopping the smoking habit. The new research report says vaping is as bad as traditional smoking! Be wise. Here is why;

Vaping Puts Vital Immune System Cells at Stake

E-cigarette vapor can disable critical immune cells; found the research. At the same time, it increases chances of the lungs inflammation. Researchers now caution vapers to hold onto the widely held belief that e-cigarettes are safe.

E-cigarettes are by far much less harmful, advises Public Health England. It thus says people willing to stop smoking can consider them as an avenue to quitting cigarettes. A small experimental study carried out by a team led by Prof. David Thickett at the University of Birmingham has its report published online in the Journal Thorax.

The study took a different approach from the ones used previously. Previous researches have dwelled on the chemical composition of e-cigarettes. However, Prof. Thickett and his team came up with an improvised procedure to camouflage electronic smoking. They chose to use eight people who do not smoke and utilized their lung tissue samples.

The vapor caused inflammation on the tissues and alveolar macrophages cells which remove dust particles with damaging capacity were impaired. Among the eight lung tissue samples, some showed effects recorded from cigarette smokers. Others had results present in patients suffering from chronic lung disease.

The researchers say that these results are only in laboratory condition. They, however, encourage further research to understand thoroughly the long-term health effects of vaping. Recorded changes took just forty-eight hours only!

Bad to Health

While results indicate e-cigarettes are safer than traditional cigarettes, they may prove harmful in the long-term. Research is still in its early stages. E-cigarettes vapor has reduced numbers of carcinogenic molecules compared to traditional cigarettes smoke.

Prof. Thickett said electronic cigarettes are safer regarding cancer risk. He, however, observed that they still need time to know whether vaping for more than twenty years can cause Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

He stressed the importance of being cautious on believing that they are safe as other research reports show.

E-cigarettes contain carcinogenic molecules; this means one is not safe from the risk of contracting cancer by vaping. Be cautious!

Addiction

Traditional cigarettes, as well as e-cigarettes, contain nicotine. Researches indicate that nicotine is addictive like heroin and cocaine. Vapers are still even in a worse position; they can inhale more nicotine than they could from a traditional cigarette. One can buy cartridges which have extra-strength. These cartridges have a higher concentration of nicotine. An e-cigarette smoker can also increase voltage and get a higher hit of the substance.

There was an independent review of the latest evidence on e-cigarettes which was published by Public Health England. The evaluation concluded that e-cigarettes are far safer than smoking. Their effects on bystanders are negligible. The review even recommended e-cigarettes for a prescription to smokers wishing to quit the habit. The primary reason behind the advice is that vaping has helped many to quit tobacco smoking.

Martin Dockrell of Public Health England says that electronic cigarettes are not 100 percent free of risk, but they are less harmful than smoking, He goes ahead to encourage those wishing to quit smoking to proceed to vape without hesitation.

We are guided by the three reasons elaborated above, in our conclusion. Vaping has no difference with smoking. One is not safe if he/she ended up having inflamed lungs, poor health or even getting addicted to the e-cigarette. Try other methods that do not have the same effects as smoking when quitting smoking. Do not be fooled!

 

 

Aging

 

In one video, Thomas makes an argument that the new life stage is likely to evolve out of the increasing number of baby boomers in the ranks so that the human cycle is defined as childhood, adulthood, and elderhood. Thomas believes that the obsession with adulthood is misplaced and that the elders are disappeared into the retirement communities since they do not fit the mode of existence that has been defined by the rest of the populace. Relocation is foisted upon the seniors since they are perceived as having nothing new to contribute to the society. The impact of the baby boomers in the society is unclear. The influence that they will have in their old ages is uncertain because there will be an influx of retiring individuals seeking benefits in large scales for a lengthy time. As the baby boomers get older and attain the retirement age, they will present an increasing challenge and opportunities for healthcare. The upsurge of the elderly patients from this generation together with the loss of boomer-age providers will further pressure the health care system.

Most of the senior citizens are in good mental health. The issues of depression and alcoholism can be reversed with treatment. Some of the conditions such as the Alzheimer’s disease are irreversible. The elderly persons are perceived to be unproductive and that they consume goods and services to a less degree than the other members of the society. The doctor suggests that the baby boomers are likely to redefine aging in a similar manner and to the same extent which they redefined adolescence and the youthful rebellion. In both contexts, there is the depiction that elderhood real, rich, deep, and meaningful and it is potentially contributory to the society. Thomas states that aging is good and that the ultimate mortality is the cornerstones of humanity.
