Vaping is definitely not healthy for your lungs. Many e cigarette liquid solutions contain a substance called Diacetyl that has been studied and observed to cause what is known as “obliterative bronchiolitis.” When inhaled, this substance permanently scars the smallest airways within the lungs, which reduces their ability to function normally. Unfortunately, there are currently no government standards for diacetyl content in vape juice, so electronic cigarette juice producers are not required to mark products that contain this hazardous material.
Other precautions include making sure patients are well hydrated and nourished before surgery, which likely improves blood flow to the brain. After surgery, experts recommend orienting patients to their hospital stay by encouraging family and friends to visit, getting them up and out of bed during the day, encouraging a good night's sleep, and discontinuing any medications that could further alter brain activity. Although it remains unclear exactly how these interventions help, physical and mental activities stimulate communication between nerve cells, which could reestablish vital connections between brain regions.
The belief that laxatives are effective for weight control is a myth. In fact, by the time laxatives act on the large intestine, most foods and calories have already been absorbed by the small intestine. Although laxatives artificially stimulate the large intestine to empty, the “weight loss” caused by a laxative-induced bowel movement contains little actual food, fat, or calories. Instead, laxative abuse causes the loss of water, minerals, electrolytes and indigestible fiber and wastes from the colon. This “water weight” returns as soon as the individual drinks any fluids and the body re-hydrates. If the chronic laxative abuser refuses to re-hydrate, she or he risks dehydration, which further taxes the organs and which may ultimately cause death.
