Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out. Our county health and crisis line is 1-855-278-4204.

How Tobacco Hurts Our World

This is a pamphlet dealing with societal ills from tobacco.  It lists plenty"
Tobacco hurts smokers.
Tobacco hurts non smokers.
Tobacco makes toxic trash.
Tobacco hurts pets.
Tobacco hurts the earth.  (This is a stretch because they talk about deforestation to raise tobacco.  It also mentions chemicals used in the growth.)
Tobacco hurst workers.  (I guess tobacco workers absorb nicotine too.)
Tobacco takes space that could be sued to grow food.  (I guess farmers grow what pays the most money.)
The cost of smoking hurts us all.  (I had hoped for a total cost, but it just says billions in terms of medical bills and lost work.)
