To what extent steroid hormones contribute to lung cancer in male and female never smokers and smokers is unclear. We examined expression of hormone receptors in lung tumors by sex and smoking. Linear regression was used to examine differences in expression by sex and smoking status. Cox proportional hazard models were used to estimate survival associated with the receptors. All statistical tests were two-sided.
Is Vaping After Sex a Thing?
Urban Dictionary: Smoke sex
However, the biological contribution of chronic smoking and sex on the cecal microbiome has not been previously investigated. Adult male, female and ovariectomized mice were exposed to air control group or smoke for six months using a standard nose-only smoke exposure system. The microbial community was different between male and female mice, while ovariectomy made the cecal microbiome similar to that of male mice. Chronic smoke exposure led to significant changes in the cecal microbial community in both male and female mice. The organism, Alistipes , was the most consistent bacteria identified at the genus level in the cecal content that was reduced with chronic cigarette exposure and its expression was positively related to the whole-body weight of these mice. Chronic smoke exposure is associated with changes in the cecal content microbiome; these changes may play a role in the weight changes that are observed in cigarette smokers.
Smoking, Sex, and Pregnancy
The worldwide spread of tobacco use in recent decades raises questions about the relative prevalence of smoking among men and women. Does the degree of gender equality in nations promote equality in cigarette use? Does rising use of cigarettes by women stem from the stage of cigarette diffusion and earlier increases among men? Or have changes in economic factors and smoking policy affected the sexes differently?
Filed Under: Health. But what is it about smoking that makes us so tempted to reach for the cigarettes after sex? And could vaping after sex replace the smoking phenomenon? We take a look at whether post-coital vaping could be the next big thing.
