What impact have conventional tobacco cigarettes on athletes and represents an alternative to the electronic cigarette? There are many famous smokers such as Helmut Schmidt, Ludwig Erhard, Romy Schneider, Marlene Dietrich or even James Dean, where the cigarette was not part of his Rebellentums. And also in hobby sports one area often meets the traditional cigarette. But how it actually looks at the elite level, there are still athletes who occasionally take the cigarette, or what might be considered heavy smokers? This question can be answered with a straightforward 'yes', so there are many prominent examples of smoking just in football: in addition to the parade example Mario Basler also others such as Rudi Assauer, Jogi Low, include Klaus Augenthaler who approved himself a cigarette after the one or other game or Werner Lorant, should be been consumed even by a linesman with a smoking ban. Speaking candidly Kay Merrill told us the story. Of course, there are fervent smokers in other sports like Franziska van Almsick, Dennis Rodman or Shaquille O'Neal and the "Unreported" should be much higher. As reported for example the world doping agency that tracks in 19% of urines of footballers of nicotine has been found and that 2009 almost half were all players of smoking or nicotine users during the ice hockey world championship in the Switzerland. The cigarette and sports but not really tolerate why tobacco cigarettes and sport is actually unable to tolerate actually is. It is not something Kay Merrill would like to discuss. The vernacular speaks of the smoker "get bad air" or cigarettes "beat on the lungs".
Can these statements be scientifically, because scientifically the following occurs when the smoking: the burning of tobacco, carbon monoxide, which is absorbed into the lungs through the smoke of the cigarette as at any other combustion also occurs. In the lungs this carbon monoxide on the red blood cells deposited, thereby carrying less oxygen. But this is only half the truth.
