I get letters (bolds and links added by Dr. Z)

Dr. Z!

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

Smoking can double the risk of Alzheimer's disease and Dementia


Listen to Dr. Z


On October 25, 2010, the online edition of Archives of Internal Medicine published the following research findings:

Heavy Smoking in Midlife and Long-term Risk of Alzheimer Disease and Vascular Dementia
Minna Rusanen; Miia Kivipelto; Charles P. Quesenberry; Jufen Zhou; Rachel A. Whitmer
Arch Intern Med. Published online October 25, 2010. doi:10.1001/archinternmed.2010.393

You can read the entire abstract online:


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."

End of quotes

These research findings speak for themselves.


Here are some terrifying Alzheimer's/dementia statistic, published by the Texas Department of State Health Services.

Listen to Dr. Z

Quotes: (Bolds and colors added by Dr. Z.)

  • Approximately 5.3 million Americans have Alzheimer's disease (AD). Unless a cure or prevention is found, that number will increase to between 11 and 16 million by 2050.
  • Alzheimer's affects up to 10 percent of people 65 and over and increasing to 50 percent at 85 and older.
  • Direct and indirect costs of AD and other dementias amount to more than $172 billion annually.
  • A new person develops Alzheimer's disease every 70 seconds -- this is projected to increase to every 33 seconds by 2050.
  • Between 2000 and 2006, deaths due to heart disease, stroke, and prostate cancer declined by 12 percent, 18 percent, and 14 percent, respectively, wheareas deaths attritutable to Alzheimer's disease increased by 47 percent.

End of quotes

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.



Smoking harms all organs, especially your Brain, Lungs, Heart

Listen to Dr. Z


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?

Listen to Dr. Z


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:

  • arsenic (a heavy metal toxin)
  • benzene (a chemical found in gasoline)
  • beryllium (a toxic metal)
  • cadmium (a metal used in batteries)
  • chromium (a metallic element)
  • ethylene oxide (a chemical used to sterilize medical devices)
  • nickel (a metallic element)
  • polonium-210 (a chemical element that gives off radiation)
  • vinyl chloride (a toxic substance used in plastics manufacture)

end of quotes


You might think it's too late to quit smoking, but here are some good news:

Why you MUST stop smoking now?

Listen to Dr. Z


  • Within 20 minutes: Blood pressure, body temperature and pulse rate will drop to normal.
  • Within eight hours: Smoker's breath disappears. Carbon monoxide level in blood drops; oxygen level rises to normal.
  • Within 24 hours: Chance of heart attack decreases.
  • Within 48 hours: Nerve endings start to regroup. Ability to taste and smell improves.
  • Within three days: Breathing is easier.
  • Within two to three months: Circulation improves. Walking becomes easier. Lung capacity increases up to 30 percent.
  • Within one to nine months: Sinus congestion and shortness of breath decrease. Cilia that sweep debris from your lungs grow back. Energy increases.
  • Within one year: Excess risk of coronary heart disease is half that of a smoker.
  • Within two years: Heart attack risk drops to near normal.
  • Within five years: Lung cancer death rate for average former pack-a-day smoker decreases by almost half. Stroke risk is reduced. Risk of mouth, throat, and esophageal cancer is half that of a smoker.
  • Within 10 years: Lung cancer death rate is similar to that of a non-smoker. The pre cancerous cells are replaced.
  • Within 15 years: Risk of coronary heart disease same as a person who has never smoked.

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.

More research:

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."

Your Personal Portable Oxygen Bar

Listen to Dr. Z


Your brain is in charge of ALL aspects your being - mental and physical. Your brain needs three things to be happy.

  1. Proper nutrition
  2. Stimulation
  3. Oxygen/O2

Smoking injures your lungs and interferes with oxygen transfer in the lungs.

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:

  • Feeling better overall
  • Clearer thinking
  • Enhanced moods
  • More restful sleep
  • Greater sense of balance
  • More stamina
  • and more....
Listen to Dr. Z


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

• Increase energy, stamina, concentration and alertness

Benefit smokers - of course, it is best to stop smoking
• Rejuvenate athletes, especially while training at higher elevations
