Hi,

I am Dr. Nikhil Modi, Pulmonologist. Today I will talk about smoking and breathing-related issues. Smoking aaj kal trend ban gaya hai. Almost har ek person smoke karta hai. But smoking se humari body ke har hisse mein problem ho sakti hai. Jiske baare mein log anjaan hain aur uske khatare ko samajhna nahi chah rahe hain. Mai ye batana chahunga ki smoking humare andar kaise bimari karti hai. Air pollution bhi humare liya utna hi khatarnak hai jitna smoking hai. Ise bhi agar hum control kar paayein toh vo humare liya fayda karega. Jo hum smoke karte hain usmein 300 se bhi jyada cancer bnane vale bacterias hote hain. Ye humare cells ko break down karke cancer paida karte hain. Cancer ke alawa aur bhi bimariyan hoti hain jo jaan lewa ho sakti hain jismein se ek hai COPD. Ismein smoke andar jake saans lene ki linings ko damage kar deti hain.

Lungs balloon ki tarah ho jaate hain and oxygen absorb nahi hoti. Saans ki naliyan patli ho jaati hain. Iske shurati symptoms mein khasi aati hai, safed bulgum, chalane firn mein saans lene mein bhi problem hoti hai, aage chal kar baithne mein bhi ye bimari saans lene mein problem karti hai. Oxygen ki itni kami ho jaati hai ki ye bimari jaan lewa ho jaati hai. Chronic bronchitis bhi patient ko ho sakta hai. Lungs mein ched ho kar pneumothorax hone ka bhi risk hota hai. Smoking sirf humein hi nuksan nahi karta, in fact ye aas paas e logon ko bhi preshan karta hai. TB and pneumonia hone ka risk bhi badh jata hai. Smokiing jab saans ki naliyon se khoon mein absor ho jaati hai, toh khoon ki naliyan heart ko block kar sakti hai jis se heart attack ka risk ho sakta hai.

Brain stroke ka risk bhi badh jata hai. Haathon and pairon ki nasein block hone se bhi gangrene ka risk ho sakta hai. Situation aisi ho jaati hai ki haath pairon ko katana bhi pad sakta hai. Toh is se aap samajh sakte hain ki smoking se humari poori body damage ho sakti hai. Isliye aap smoking quit kariye. Agar aap smoking nahi chor paa rahein hain toh clinics mein consult kar ke counseling le sakte hain and medicines, chewing gum bhi le sakte hain. Iske baare mein sochein and smoking quit karein.

Thank You!
