It also stops the cilia in a woman’s ovaries that push the egg down the fallopian tube so there is a very great chance for (I don't know the technical name) but the egg can drop into your pelvic area outside of any reproductive organs and sperm can also get there. Sometimes when this happens it is fertilized and it's always fatal to the baby and sometimes to mommy if not treated etc... So the chance of this is a lot greater in smokers.

I think you're talking about ectopic pregnancy... :roll:

I hate smoking, so this is no ploy to endorse it, but i think iri_black is right, my freind has a problem with his attention and concentration due to ADD, and in his ADD medication there are several agents in it that act on the same basis as Nicotene. They help focus and concentration, and even negatively (as the episode on desperate housewives illustrates) can become very addicting. Not to say that desperate housewives is at all a reputable source :wink:

Another question about coffee:

Will you get the same effect taking pure coffee beans without using any water? By that I mean eating the coffee literally... 8)

Yes, I guess. Because there is no such kind of effect for water.

The effect will be the same, but the taste would be awful and you will get a stomach ache since coffee beans are probably very hard to digest...

As a matter of fact a few beans in "creme anglaise" (liquid vanilla custard) or coated with chocolate are very good. Use your teeth Andrew :wink:

but, anyway...coffee isn't all bad...in some aspects, coffee is good also.. :lol:

hey sounds quiet confusing but i believe caffeine contains Chlorogenic Acid, an antioxydant acid meaning it can reduct stress from oxidizing cells.
it also stops inflamation and pain on certain cells.

Anyway, 'bout your theory iri_black, I can say that there're no nicotine receptors in the cell


I knew i've read about nicotine receptors somewhere.... :)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicotinic_receptors

You should see the doctors in our country....I know a lady doctor that smoked even during pregnancy :x .....

ahh good comeback not to team up on ol' vicky. anyway i believe that nicotine alters the receptors on our membrane. sending responses to neurotransmitters to send more altered receptors for nicotine. thus helping makind it an addiction to fulfill the receptors need. thanks for the link. not a cigerette smoker but open for all biological studies.
