Weird Health News

Here is some weird news which goes totally against the grain: nicotine can prevent joint replacements.

According to a study, people who smoked for the majority of their life have a decreased risk of needing joint replacements due to arthritis and/or related illnesses, because nicotine seems to 'stimulate the activity of the cells found in joint cartilage' and therefore diminishes the impact and lessens the damage of these conditions.

There is still too little know-how as to how it really works and more research is needed, but scientists and doctors are keeping a close eye on it and may eventually come up with a new treatment which could eliminate many joint replacements.

Even though and ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, this certainly is no justification for reaching for a cigarette and picking up smoking. Smoking is a real hazard to your health and can lead to all kinds of diseases like cancer, emphysema, heart disease and stroke.

It is better to leave it up to the researches, scientists and doctors and let them search for and come up with a good and safe solution to the problem.

God has the best and safest solution to all our problems, but it is up to us to trust Him and have faith!

Jeremiah 29:13
And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
