Smoking related-diseases kill one in 10 adults globally. By 2030, if current trends continue, smoking will kill one in six people. What if I told you that more than 4,000 toxic or carcinogenic chemicals have been found in tobacco smoke? My guest is Dr. Aditi Satti, who says there are also radioactive elements in cigarettes that smokers are not able to expel from their lungs. It may not be enough to make you glow in the dark, but that’s more than enough ammunition to put those cigarettes down for good.
Nearly 20 percent of the population smokes, and when smokers are ready to kick the habit, one of their biggest worries is how much weight they will gain. My guest is Bradley Burnam who wrote “The Smoke Free Diet: Waist Away and Kick Those Butts!” He explains how smokers can kick the habit and actually lose weight simultaneously, rather than packing the pounds on. And, by following his regimen and dietary program, individuals will also lower their cholesterol, blood pressure and triglyceride levels.
