smoke & bacteria
Defense cells attack alveoli mostly get it smokers: Each tenth
adult German suffers from chronic bronchitis, from their consequences
even eight per cent of the men gotten sick and a per cent of the
women concerned dies with the investigation of damaged lung fabric
found physicians now an unexpected "accomplice of the destruction":
Chlamydien, special bacteria, which survive within landlord cells,
provoke the immune system so much the fact that it harms the patient
more as if is useful. Tobacco smoke makes the Bronchialschleimhaeute
sensitive for viruses and bacteria, which let the respiratory
system swell by continual inflammations.
consequence: Inhaled air can leave the lung no longer
completely, it stays a remainder. With the time the pressure overstretches
the alveoli, it can up to several centimeters become large. Finally
the body diminishes the walls of the vesicles, "breath surface"
is lost. This lung damage is called "Emphysem".
cells attack alveolus the body-own immune defense have the task
to protect us against penetrating micro organisms. In the case
of a Lungenemphysems it follows its task too well: They attack
the Chlamydien, which cover the lung fabric like small balls.
The presence of the Chlamydien provokes the immune system to intensified
activity? Fresszellen form Auslaeufer to the Chlamydien and produce
digesting enzymes, which are to dissolve the intruders. Unfortunately
the enzymes perforate also the alveoli and support so still the
dismantling processes of the Emphysems.
The medical profession hope now to be able to switch one off of
the two lung destroyers. Antibiotics are to kill the Chlamydien
and to stop the chronic, obstructive lung illness. You should
vacate the other aggressor from the way:
best stop with smoking!
