Lung damage caused by smoking

Cigarette smoking is the dominant risk factor for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).  Tobacco smoke is a toxic mix of more than 7,000 chemicals and compounds.  Nicotine (NIK-uh-TEEN), carbon monoxide (muh-NOK-side), and tars are some of these substances.  When you smoke cigarettes, many chemicals enter your body through your lungs.  Therefore, burning tobacco produces more than 7,000 chemicals.  And these chemicals and compounds reach a person's lungs quickly every time the person inhales.  The blood then carries the toxicants to every organ in the body. 

    Due to inhaled tar a smoker’s lungs appear dark and mottled, and damaged lungs from a smoker being much harder and more brittle.

October, 2017, atmospheric pollutant of a research is published in the Lancet. It cost the researchers for two years to search the data of the relationship of the pollution and the health.  Pollution is the largest environmental cause of disease and premature death in the world today.  Diseases caused by pollution were responsible for an estimated 9 million premature deaths in 2015.  The diseases include IHD, stroke and COPD. 

In Taiwan, there are an estimated 9.02% deaths due to atmospheric pollutant.  Therefore, at least 10 thousand people death each year caused by atmospheric pollutant.  We can’t ignore this problem.


How should we restore our lung functions?

Eating tomatoes, apples…..

Case 1


    According to a study of Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School, it is found and published in the December issue, 2017 of the European Respiratory Journal, the former smoker may eat fruits, such as tomatoes and/ or apples to restore lung functions.

If the former smokers with a diet high in tomatoes and fruits especially apples, the natural decline in lung function over a 10-year period may be slower, suggesting certain components in these foods might help restore lung damage caused by smoking.

    The investigators had a test of research to more six hundred adults who live in Europe, such as Germany, Britain and Norway.  The research found that the adults who on average ate more than two tomatoes or more than three portions of fresh fruits and vegetables a day had a slower decline in lung function, compared to those who ate less than one tomato or less than one portion of fruits, respectively, on a daily basis.

Usually, the lung functions of person may decline after 30 years old, and the rate of the decline depends on healthy and constitution of each one.  Therefore, if you eat more useful diet, such as some fruits and vegetables well for people, they may restore lung damage caused by smoking or COPD, and they also may slower the rate of the decline of the lung functions from the people who don’t smoke.


Case 2


According to a study of Lead researcher Sarah Lewis, Ph.D. of University of Nottingham, the researcher Lewis, Ph.D., presented at the American Thoracic Society's 97th International Conference that eating fruits and vegetables, such as tomatoes and apples appears to reduce the risk of developing some types of lung disease and may even improve lung function in May, 2001.

There are important Researchers at the University of Nottingham, United Kingdom, studied the relationship between diet and self-reported wheeze, doctor-diagnosed asthma and lung function in 2,633 adults.  They found that eating five or more apples per week or at least three tomatoes a week were most strongly associated with increased lung function.  Eating a lot of apples and tomatoes also reduced the risk of wheezing.  Lead researcher Sarah Lewis, Ph.D., notes that it may be that any effect is due to the concerted action of all the nutrients in apples and tomatoes, especially the antioxidants that are particularly rich in the peel of apples and contribute to the coloring of tomatoes, and antioxidants may work by protecting the airways against the insult of tobacco smoke and other atmospheric pollutants.
