- PCBs in fish and shellfish. PCBs, or polychlorinated biphenyls, are highly toxic industrial compounds. These chemicals can build up in the fatty tissues of fish and other animals, and in high concentrations pose serious health risks to people who frequently eat contaminated fish.
- Products that may contain PCBs include:
- Transformers and capacitors.
- Electrical equipment including voltage regulators, switches, re-closers, bushings, and electromagnets.
- Oil used in motors and hydraulic systems.
- Old electrical devices or appliances containing PCB capacitors.
- Fluorescent light ballasts.
- Cable insulation.
- PCBs have been used as coolants and lubricants in transformers, capacitors, and other electrical equipment because they don't burn easily and are good insulators. The manufacture of PCBs was stopped in the U.S. in 1977 because of evidence they build up in the environment and can cause harmful health effects.

- Smoking seems to be one of several factors that work together to form ulcers. For example, smoking may increase your risk of infection with the bacteria that cause some peptic ulcers. Stomach acid also plays a big role in producing ulcers. Smokers are also more likely to die from ulcers.
- Among other things, the liver is responsible for processing drugs, alcohol and other toxins to remove them from the body. Cigarette smoking increases the risk of developing HCC among chronic liver disease (CLD) patients independently of liver status.
- Nicotine works on neurons in the brain that have nicotine receptors, & that's why cigs make you feel calmer & more focused. But the nervous system of your gut also has these receptors. Nicotine in the brain helps you to relax a little, and nicotine in the gut stimulates the gut to relax & move the poop along.
