The Hazards of Smoking on The Big Stomach, Increasing Deterioration of Gastric Ulcer, Gastritis Condition!
Smoking not only causes lung cancer, but also hurt the stomach, increasing the incidence of gastric cancer.
Smoke into the stomach, the nicotine will directly stimulate the gastric mucosa, making the mucous membrane of vascular contraction, spasm, gastric mucosa appear ischemia, hypoxia symptoms, the long run, it is easy to form stomach ulcers, leading to erosive gastritis, atrophic gastritis, These symptoms are danger signals of gastric cancer.
In addition, nicotine and other substances in smoke inhalation after the stomach difficult to discharge, and was a substantial absorption of gastric mucosa and gastric acid in synthesis of carcinogenic nitrosamines under, will be induced gastric cancer. Nicotine also make the pyloric sphincter relaxation, resulting in bile and duodenal juice reflux into the stomach. The bile acid on the role of gastric mucosal damage a lot, it will also become a cause of stomach erosion, bleeding, cancer risk factors.
Some smokers think that as long cigarette holder with a filter can reduce the intake of harmful substances. Research shows that 70% -80% in cigarettes, nicotine, 90% of arsenic can enter the body through the filter tip.
Therefore, the risk of atrophic gastritis, gastric ulcer disease patients in particular, should stop smoking. No obvious symptoms of early gastric cancer, no stomach discomfort usually smokers, if there is bloating, heartburn, belching, anorexia, melena and other symptoms, we must promptly to the hospital.
Physicians believe that smoking will increase gastritis, ulcer disease condition is not conducive to gastritis, peptic ulcer healing. The major impact of smoking on the stomach has the following three points:
First, the increase in the incidence of stomach. It is found that the incidence of ulcer disease of smokers non-smokers in the 2 to 4 times.
Second, the lower the cure rate of stomach. Someone has compared to the same chronic gastritis or ulcer disease patients using the same drug treatment, non-smoking group, the cure rate was 90%, compared with only 63% of smokers.
Third, easily lead to relapse. Withdrawal of these two groups were made after one year compared to non-smoking group the recurrence rate was 53%, 84% smokers.
Smoking and nicotine increase the stomach is the culprit, it can act on the vagus nerve system, disruption of normal gastrointestinal motility, pyloric sphincter to relax, gallbladder, bile is easy to make alkaline gastric reflux, resulting in damage to gastric mucosa. And it also prompted an increase in gastric acid secretion, inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis, thereby reducing the secretion of gastric mucus. These can damage gastric mucosa, leading to stomach problems.
