Emphysema Bronchitis - Death by Cigarettes

Has long been known that smoking and lung cancer are causally linked. After having discovered this association though, much has been made of the heightened incidence of other forms of cancer caused by of smoking. I am going to highlight the data that reiterates the claims and suggest that the evidence is not so strong for other forms of cancer being causally linked with smoking. The evidence is analysed from the mortality statistics for the UK in 2002.

Death from cancer of the upper respiratory tract was found at a rate of 66% in smokers, nearly three times the percentage of smokers. Note though that women sufferers represented half of their cohort compared with three quarters of men, suggesting upper respiratory cancer is more likely in men than in women smokers. Ignorance is bliss, is it? Isn't it better to learn more than not to know about something like Chronic Bronchitis. So we have produced this article so that you can learn more about it!

Oesophageal cancer deaths numbered just under 5,000 and the deceased were found to be 66% smokers, 71% and 65% men to women respectively; again another clear link that smoking and oesophageal cancer are linked.

Next, bladder cancer takes over 1,800 lives per year of which 37% are found to be smokers. However, only 19% of female cases were smokers compared with 47% of male cases. It is fair to assume that there are other factors more prevalent in female bladder cancer other than smoking but the link is clear in men. It is with much interest that we got about to write on Emphysema Chronic Bronchitis. So we do hope that you too read this article with the same, if not more interest! :lol:

Deaths from COPD in 2002 in the UK numbered 28,500 of which 84% were smokers demonstrating a clear link between the inhalation of tobacco smoke and the disease as is the case with lung cancer. We were actually wondering how to get about to writing about Emphysema Bronchitis. However once we started writing, the words just seemed to flow continuously! :oops:

Finally, heart disease is the biggest single killer in the UK with over a quarter of a million deaths a year as a result of its various forms. Of all the major forms of heart disease, ischaemic heart disease, cerebrovascular disease, aortic aneurysm, myocardial degeneration and atherosclerosis, the percentage of smokers suffering from aortic aneuryism was just under 60%. All other forms of heart disease showed near 26% or below. This suggests that smoking may not be the main contributory factor but it almost certainly will have had an impact.

Some sources suggest that pneumonia is more likely to kill in smokers but only 17% of the 36,000 fatal pneumonia cases were found in smokers suggesting this is not the case. It is rather inviting to go on writing on Emphysema Bronchitis. however as there is a limitation to the number of words to be written, we have confined ourselves to this. However, do enjoy yourself reading it. :o.

Will work through the statistics because 26% of the population are smokers and so one might reasonably assume that any incidence of cancer where less than 26% of sufferers are smokers may have other more prevalent causes than smoking. Do not judge a book by its cover; so don't just scan through this matter on Chronic Bronchitis. read it thoroughly to judge its value and importance.

All in all, there were over 114,000 premature deaths in 2002 from cigarette smoking, mostly from cancer, but also from heart disease and pulmonary (lung) disease. The best way to improve ones chances of not suffering from a shortened life and succumbing to one of the diseases mentioned in this article is by quitting smoking once and for all. Benefits have been clearly documented and the sooner smokers quit, the bigger the benefits of quitting become on their life expectancy. Indeed, smokers who quit before they reach thirty, statistically negate virtually all the ill health effect of smoking and can generally expect to live as long as a non-smoking contemporary. Isn't it amazing how much information can be transferred through a single page? So much stands to gain, and to lose about Emphysema Chronic Bronchitis through a single page.

Bronchitis is a disease that occurs on the respiratory system wherein inflammation is experienced by the mucous membrane of the bronchial passages of the lungs. This irritation could cause thickness and swelling thus narrowing the tiny airways that can be found in the lungs. As a result, spells of coughing will be experienced by the patient accompanied by breathlessness and thick phlegm, which are also considered as among the symptoms of bronchitis. :)

One of main symptoms of bronchitis, as mentioned earlier, is a cough that is accompanied with green or yellowish-gray sputum or mucus. Although the presence of mucus is not unusual as it is normal for one's airways to secrete mucus every day, this doesn't usually accumulate. This is because these secretions are cleared continuously in one's throat and are just swallowed along with the saliva. However, when the bronchial tubes or the lung's main passageways for air get inflamed, large quantities of discolored mucus are usually produced and these are coughed up during coughing spells. If after three months, this symptom is still being experienced by a patient, then he or she already has a case of chronic bronchitis. Secondary infection is always looked into if there is mucus present that is not clear or is not white in color. ;)

There are also other symptoms of bronchitis that could accompany the coughing bouts and mucus. This is because it is common for acute bronchitis to be accompanied by the usual signs that are usually apparent in an infection on the upper respiratory tract. These include sore throat, chills and slight fever, breathlessness, soreness and a constricting burning feeling in the chest, wheezing, chest congestion, overall malaise and fullness of the sinus cavities. :evil:

However, the Symptoms of Bronchitis are Really Quite Deceptive in Nature

This is because there are cases of bronchitis wherein the presence of mucus is not there. This is especially hard in children, who oftentimes get to swallow the mucus that they coughed up, thus masking the presence of a possible secondary infection. There are even many smokers who have does the throat-clearing habit during mornings, immediately after they get out of bed. While they might think that this is just normal, it could actually be a symptom of bronchitis. If this clearing of throat goes on even after three months have already passed, then this could already be chronic bronchitis. Keeping to the point is very important when writing. So we have to stuck to Bronchitis Symptoms, and have not wandered much from it to enhance understanding.

There are actually two types of bronchitis and these are the acute bronchitis, which could last not more than 6 weeks and the chronic bronchitis, which reoccurs quite often in the span of two years or more.
