Celebrity bodybuilder and 3-time 'Mr. Olympia' champion Jay Cutler is spotted at world famous intersection Hollywood & Vine and when asked what his New Years resolution is, replied that it's to quit smoking. Good one, Jay...especially for someone training their body. Here's some good reasons to quit smoking now: according to Canadian pharmacist Darlene Marlow, chemical analysis of cigarette smoke shows the presence of more than 4000 chemical substances, 43 of which are powerful carcinogen, and over 400 - toxins that otherwise negatively affect human health. In addition to highly addictive nicotine, the most dangerous chemicals in tobacco smoke include tar, formaldehyde (used to preserve corpses), carbon monoxide (known poison), DDT (insecticide that has been banned due to its highly poisonous qualities), arsenic (substance often used in rat poisons), ammonia (chemical toilet cleanser; damages the lungs), and hydrogen cyanide (deadly poison). Nicotine depresses the central nervous system and inhibits the nerve cell signals. In large doses, it is extremely poisonous to our hormones, blood vessels, circulation, heart, and the brain. Tar, the amount of which in cigarette smoke increases with every new puff, accumulates in the lungs and eventually causes dangerous lung diseases. Carbon monoxide slows down the transport of oxygen-carrying red blood cells to organs and tissues. So think about your loved ones...and think about yourself, and QUIT SMOKING, STARTING NEW YEAR'S DAY!
