Smoking doesn't slim girls

Why are teen girls still lighting up? Girls are using cigarettes for weight control, but it doesn't work. Teenage girls gain weight at exactly the same rate whether they smoke or not, but girls, who believed they are overweight are more likely to smoke than those who saw themselves as average or thin. Around one-third of girls consider themselves overweight.

The myth that smoking is slimming is a clever marketing ploy, courtesy of the tobacco industry. Young people are very important to the tobacco industry, because eventually the people who currently smoke will not survive, and those smokers have to be replaced. Smoking is not glamorous, and the tobacco industry is actually duping teen girls. They are out to get young people. Who else is going to replace all those smokers?

Lemon Detox Diet

The Lemon Detox Diet allows the body to cleanse itself naturally while taking a break from solid food. The body has miraculous powers to cleanse itself, but a growing proportion of us in the developed world eat too much food. Our system has to work harder and faster to eliminate the waste created by these foods. In addition, the numerous chemicals and toxins that have been introduced into the natural environment can find their ways into our bodies through the air we breathe and the water we drink. This puts added strain on the elimination processes in our bodies.

The Lemon Detox Diet is a drink consisting of pure water, fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper or ground ginger and Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup. Whenever you get hungry simply mix a glass of the drink.

The Lemon Detox Diet are successful while quitting smoking. It cuted cravings and helped slowly push out the tar. Furthermore you may need the Lemon Detox Diet to get weight that you gained after quit smoking off! Also this lemon juice, pepper, maple syrup diet is called the Master Cleanse or Master Cleanser or Lemonade Diet.

The Detox Drink
To make one glass of Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink take

Two small tablespoons (or 20 ml) of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup.

Two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice (about half a lemon). Use fresh lemons, not lemon drink or concentrate.

Half a pinch of cayenne pepper or ginger (adjust to taste).

Mix the ingredients and dilute with half a pint of hot or cold water.

Drink as much as you like, ideally 6 to 9 glasses a day.

If you prefer you can prepare one batch of Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink to last for the whole day. For 1½ liter of water (approx. 7 glasses) you will need 140ml of Madal Bal Natural Tree Syrup and 3½ lemons as well as the cayenne pepper or ginger.

The Challenge - It's all in the Mind
The main challenge of the program is mental. Because we are accustomed to eating whenever we feel like it, the discipline of not taking any solid food can seem a bit daunting. Eating has become a habit and like any other habits it is not so easy to break, even temporarily. It is often very tempting to cheat during the detox. Do not give in to temptation. Stick to it! Be strong! When you experience hunger simply treat yourself to another Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon Drink. Keep thinking of all the benefits you will achieve when you have finished the Lemon Detox Diet and can enjoy solid food again.

A true fast is complete abstinence from food of any kind, yet the Lemon Detox is liquid food - nourishing and energizing. It is important not to burden the body with solid food during the detox. Digesting solid food consumes much of the body's energy and overrides many of its other tasks. In the absence of solid food, the body can focus its energy on cleansing. Throughout history, experience has shown a periodic abstinence from solid food to be a blessing for the entire organism, the best investment in improved health and a longer natural life span.

While the actual inner cleansing and rejuvenation is performed by the body itself, the Natural Tree Syrup and Lemon drink fulfils important functions in assisting this process: It supplies the nutrients necessary for the body's continuing alert functioning, assisting to restore the biochemical and mineral balance in tissues and cells and expediting cell regeneration. It is assimilated directly into the bloodstream, placing no additional burden on the digestive system. It provides a liquid medium essential for the efficient flushing of wastes from the system.

The acidity of lemon juice assists the cleansing process, acting like an internal detergent to dissolve excess fats and the cayenne pepper or ground ginger helps speed up metabolism, thus promoting circulation and the elimination of toxins.

Love life affected

Most smokers find it easier to give up sex for a month than cigarettes and many view even parachute jumps less difficult than quitting smoking. A nicotine is addictive: the majority of smokers want to stop, the motivation is there, but nearly 3 or 4 from 5 smokers would give up sex rather than live without cigarettes for a month. In the same time smokers understand that smoking is affected their love life, but many of them have never attempted to stop smoking.

Because of traditional anti-smoking campaigns, fear of health problems is the biggest motivator to quit, but majority of those, who tried to quit began smoking again within a month. There are more targeted approaches which will drill down into the detail of how people live their lives as a whole and what levers will motivate people to change their behaviour. For example, stop smoking campaign focused on looks and sex appeal because for younger people, fears about attractiveness and fertility can be a stronger motivation to quit than fears about health.

If you have sexual health problems such as low desire, erectile dysfunction, or premature ejaculation, quit smoking. This will improve your health hard.

Real Marlboro Country

Real Marlboro Country

Although killing your customers is generally not a good business practice, the tobacco companies seem to be having incredible success. Looking at Philip Morris' Marlboro cigarettes, this phenomenon proves especially amazing. Virtually an unknown brand in 1955, Marlboro has steadily increased sales, being named the "top selling brand in the U.S. and an all-time-best seller in the world," in just 1975. Then, in 1989, it took hold of almost one-forth of all cigarette sales, and today it remains the world's most profitable brand of non durable goods, surpassing even Coca-Cola!

Marlboro Country permeates the attractive values of the cowboy, namely adventure, independence, freedom, and heroism. Although Marlboro has often been narrowly defined as a male brand, by both the people at Philip Morris and the general public, it also has enormous appeal to women. This is because, underneath the cowboy clothes is an authentic man who possesses all the qualities both men and women desire. When a man looks at the inviting landscape of Marlboro Country and the rugged cowboy, he is being exposed to a number of powerful messages. Looking at the open grassy fields, the viewer sees escape from the pressures, stresses, and routine of mundane life. When interpreting the image of the lone cowboy riding his horse, he feels a sense of independence and autonomy. Marlboro Man is portrayed as having immense control over things and his life. This idea of controllability has a dual influence, attracting women as well. Heroism and the concept of being "one with nature" also play important roles in enticing women. And, of course, sex appeal is surely at work in the cowboy's physique and symbolism.

The Marlboro Man appeal is absolutely overwhelming; Marlboro Country is more than a "paradise of the West." The entire campaign brilliantly allows its audience to project their innermost desires and fantasies into the very pages of the advertisements.

Smoking is a way of life in France

In the past, France has been evaluated quite highly, but this has partly been because French women's health has for a long time been better than men's, but recently the women also have started smoking more. Due to the raise in French women smoking, France's overall health rankings will fall now; Women have earned the right to die from smoking. The number of young smokers has increased also.

It is the end of a long myth France had enjoyed, what had been called a paradox that the French ate rich foods, drank lots of wine, smoked like chimneys, engaged in very little vigorous exercise, and yet enjoyed a greater collective health than most countries in the world. No longer: France's poor position in terms of cancer deaths can be explained largely by the high levels of deaths from lung cancer, throat and mouth cancers and liver cancer; this type of cancer is closely linked to two risk factors: excessive alcohol consumption and smoking.

Menthol cigarettes are not safer

Instead of going to the doctor and getting medicine I would switch to menthols. It was less harsh than my regular cigarettes. That's how the mind of a smoker works. Menthol, a mint-derived substance, causes skin to feel cooler by arousing nerve endings that sense cold temperatures. Cigarette manufacturers use menthol because it mellows the taste of burning cigarettes.

Interestingly, intake of menthol is pretty safe. But those who smoke menthol cigarettes take in a higher concentration of carcinogens and experience more smoking-related illnesses than do people who smoke regular cigarettes. Menthol has a cooling effect, an anesthetic effect, making it less harsh when smoking. So, when you are more comfortable smoking, you are probably less likely to quit. Menthol smokers seem to inhale more deeply, getting more of the toxins.

This extra intake of carcinogenic substances by menthol smokers may be the cause of higher incidences of smoking-related sicknesses. As a result, menthol cigarette smokers may become more quickly addicted and may smoke more cigarettes than those who smoke non-mentholated cigarettes. Thus, smokers of menthol cigarettes have a higher rate of smoking-related diseases than smokers of regular cigarettes.

Therefore, menthol cigarettes are not safer. Moreover, it may make it even harder to quit if you think smoking menthol cigarettes is cleaner or healthier. The solution is to avoid tobacco products regardless of menthol content.
