facts on smoking and fitness


high levels of carbon monoxide (co) reduce amount of oxygen (o2) absorbed into the blood from lungs

co in bllod rduces the of o2 released from blood to muscles

WHy would you wanna smoke and do something to keep fit or compete in. Confused
smoking and fitness its an oxymoron surely

I find it odd when you pair up with someone and you can tell theyve had a last puff before coming to class, its all over them on their breath, YUK

The faxts are interesting and enought to put me off wanting to smoke but I guess its not that easy for those already hooked to get off em.

I find it amazing that things like Growth Hormone are illegel yet they can help promote growth of dead cells, make you healthier, make you better as in rehabilition and over all (when not abused) is a performance ENHANCING drug.

Smoking, kills you, affects the people around you in a negative way, makes more money then any drug dealer could dream of, the packaging tells you that if you take this, it will more then likely kill you, is helping to destory the environment (like the butts, smoke etc) and to get you hooked on it, they sell lolly cigarettes to little kids!

I tell you that the government is taking a big payoff in the back pocket and isnt out to help us, more like to make us sick to keep the doctors and hospitals etc working

Anyway, smoking is bad. Dont do it Exclamation
