Passive Smoking and Infectious Disease: A Serious Hazard for Cardiovascular System  [PDF]
Aurelio Leone
International Journal of Clinical Medicine (IJCM) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ijcm.2011.25090
Abstract: Exposure to passive smoking is usually associated with heavy changes in both function and structure of the cardiovascular system at different levels: coronary circulation, heart metabolism, myocardial muscle. These changes may be transient but may have characteristics of irreversibility. Major determinant of cardiovascular alterations is hypoxia due to tobacco products of the environment although a large number of alterations affect immune t-cells and antibody response. All infectious diseases which involve cardiovascular system, including some tropical patterns, particularly Chagas disease, are adversely influenced as a consequence of a continuous although irregular exposure to passive smoking, which worsens the degree of cardiac muscle alterations at different levels like myocardium, coronary arteries and both these structures. Therefore, exposure to passive smoking must be avoided for those individuals suffering from infectious diseases of the heart whatever factor can be responsible.
Does Smoking Act as a Friend or Enemy of Blood Pressure? Let Release Pandora's Box
Aurelio Leone
Cardiology Research and Practice , 2011, DOI: 10.4061/2011/264894
Abstract: In spite of the great number of observations which show the certainty of cardiovascular damage from smoking, the opinions on that are not yet unanimous. There is a discrepancy that could be attributed to the lack of reproducible data particularly in some epidemiological studies. On the contrary, experimental findings conducted on both animals and humans give evidence of exactly reproducible results of cardiovascular alterations and among these the course of Blood Pressure (BP). Findings identify an increase in BP of active smokers or non-smokers exposed to passive smoking, while a lot of others refer a lowering of BP due to smoking. This discrepancy could be explained as follows. Initially, a vasoconstriction mediated by nicotine causes acute but transient increase in systolic BP. This phase is followed by a decrease in BP as a consequence of depressant effects played chronically by nicotine itself. Simultaneously, carbon monoxide is acting directly on the arterial wall causing, in the long run, structurally irreversible alterations. At this time, there is a change in BP that increases again, and often constantly, its levels following chronic exposure. Changes in response to antihypertensive drugs have been observed in hypertensive smokers since smoking influences metabolic steps of the drugs.
A Igreja católica, a política e a sociedadade
Alonso, Aurelio;
Estudos Avan?ados , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40142011000200010
Abstract: this essay aims to analyze the relations between the catholic church and the cuban socialist state over the years after the revolution. to this end, we established a chronology of these relations that includes the ensuing frictions, conflicts and dialogues - from the expulsion of a bishop and his deportation to spain after a procession dedicated to our virgin of charity [la virgen de la caridad del cobre, cuba's patron saint], which ended in a march against the revolution in havana in 1961, to the visit of pope john paul ii in 1998 and the reconciliation and restructuring of the catholic church on the island. as a constant background concern, the chronology takes into account the dilemma between "revolution" and "catholicism that was introduced in 1959. thus, the essay traces the long road from initial divergence to the current climate of religious freedom and conciliatory dialogue between church and state in cuba.
Cuba: a sociedade após meio século de mudan?as, conquistas e contratempos
Alonso, Aurelio;
Estudos Avan?ados , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-40142011000200002
Abstract: the revolutionary victory in 1959 transformed the social and economic structure, as well as the notions and collective imagination of the cuban people. this episode is already half a century old, during which time the mobile and contradictory nature of the situations, through external and internal factors, gave rise to victories, setbacks and very complex effects in cuban society today . the resistance of the cuban project against imperial hegemony over the last fifty-odd years surprised the world's centers of power, when cuban society chose a socialist path in the 1960s. the scope of its strategies of solidarity was also cause of surprise, with their prolonged and decisive struggle against apartheid over the two following decades. equally surprising, cuba remained standing after the worldwide fall of socialism. during this period, the country showed time and again that resistance is possible and necessary.
