I am so happy with this product Sulfonil. I have been trying for a long time to quit smoking, and when I found your ad in the book I ordered, - "Alternative Cures", and finally found you to order this Sulfonil. I trusted it to work for me because I believe in natural cures for every thing,
Sulfonil is working, and I want to say thank you for it. I am telling others about it, because the world of smokers needs to know about this.
Thank you again and again

Quotes from the abstract:
(Bolds and colors added by Dr. Z.)
"Smoking is a risk factor for several life-threatening diseases, but its long-term association with dementia is controversial and somewhat understudied. Our objective was to investigate the long-term association of amount of smoking in middle age on the risk of dementia, Alzheimer disease (AD), and vascular dementia (VaD) several decades later in a large, diverse population. ...."
"Conclusions In this large cohort, heavy smoking in midlife was associated with a greater than 100% increase in risk of dementia, AD, and VaD more than 2 decades later. These results suggest that the brain is not immune to long-term consequences of heavy smoking."

The worldwide costs of coping with dementia will reach $604 billion in 2010, more than one percent of global GDP output, and those costs will soar further as the number of sufferers triples by 2050.
The World Health Organization says 5 million people die every year from tobacco-related heart attacks, strokes and cancers. Another 430,000 adults die annually from breathing second-hand smoke.
Please share this with yourself or someone you know who wants to quit smoking.
Here are some quotes from: (bolds added by Dr. Z)
National Cancer Institute
Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body and diminishes a person’s overall health. Smoking is a leading cause of cancer and of death from cancer. It causes cancers of the lung, esophagus, larynx (voice box), mouth, throat, kidney, bladder, pancreas, stomach, and cervix, as well as acute myeloid leukemia.
Smoking also causes heart disease, stroke, lung disease (chronic bronchitis and emphysema), hip fractures, and cataracts. Smokers are at higher risk of developing pneumonia and other airway infections.
A pregnant smoker is at higher risk of having her baby born too early and with an abnormally low weight. A woman who smokes during or after pregnancy increases her infant’s risk of death from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
Millions of Americans have health problems caused by smoking. Cigarette smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke cause an estimated average of 438,000 premature deaths each year in the United States. Of these premature deaths, about 40 percent are from cancer, 35 percent are from heart disease and stroke, and 25 percent are from lung disease. Smoking is the leading cause of premature, preventable death in this country.
Regardless of their age, smokers can substantially reduce their risk of disease, including cancer, by quitting.
Does tobacco smoke contain harmful chemicals?
Yes. Tobacco smoke contains chemicals that are harmful to both smokers and nonsmokers. Breathing even a little tobacco smoke can be harmful. Of the 4,000 chemicals in tobacco smoke, at least 250 are known to be harmful. The toxic chemicals found in smoke include hydrogen cyanide (used in chemical weapons), carbon monoxide (found in car exhaust), formaldehyde (used as an embalming fluid), ammonia (used in household cleaners), and toluene (found in paint thinners).
Of the 250 known harmful chemicals in tobacco smoke, more than 50 have been found to cause cancer. These chemicals include:

The above list is a short version of all the damage smoking is known to cause. It also shows you that your body will heal to the extent possible if you will only give it a chance.
Heavy maternal smoking during pregnancy was linked to a nearly fivefold increase in early-onset type 2 diabetes and obesity in offspring. "In utero exposures to smoking during pregnancy may increase the risk to both diabetes and obesity through programming, resulting in lifelong metabolic dysregulation, possibly due to fetal malnutrition or toxicity."

I know, I smoked for 22 years!
Oxygen is critical - your brain depends on adequate oxygen more than any other part of your body. As we age this becomes more important - every year we lose some of our capacity to utilize oxygen - approx. 1% per year after the age of 20.
This is what some of Dr. Z's patients and friends report:
Because your brain controls ALL aspects of who you are, benefits are possible in any area of your life experience - in other words, its use may
