Second Hand Smoker
Dr. Sergio Jaramillo
Any advice that physicians give to their patients is proven and scientifically based, says Doctor Sergio Jaramillo, Neurologist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center.
There's just loads of evidence of the primary and the secondary effects of smoking. It's very clear, according to him, the link between smoking and the carcinogenic effect or the risk of developing many types of cancer.
Doctor Jaramillo explains, in a digital imaging, how every organ can be affected by harmful chemicals, because, if a person is inhaling not just oxygen but smoking nicotine and other chemicals from cigarettes, he gets sort of absorbed into his bloodstream and from the lungs. That blood gets pumped to the rest of his body.
