121. If you live or work with a smoker who won’t or can’t quit, eat more foods rich in vitamin C. Cigarette smoke is a major source of free radicals, which can damage cells; vitamin C and other antioxidants help inactivate these compounds, and are “used up” in the process. Passive smokers use up extra vitamin C and thus have low blood levels of this vitamin.
I smoked a pipe for a brief amount of time 40 years ago. I stopped . I am glad that smoking isn't so popular in the PacNW and lots of smoke free places. Even in France it is a lot better than it use to be.
We were just talking about this last night - how we take for granted the fact that we have so many smoke-free areas - like all restaurants and bars and public places in NY. It wasn't always like that. We were in Greece 14 years ago and people smoked everywhere - the airport, checking into your hotel, all cafes and restaurants. We talked about how sick that made us. How is it where you are, Cathy? Even in college classes, students smoked at one time. On airplanes too. We have come a long way.
