Sam was a military man who used to have recurring tonsil stones. He don’t know what caused them and how to stop them permanently.
One evening when he visited his friend’s house, his friend said that he feels that his tonsil stones were caused by his habit of smoking.
Sam knew that he has the habit of smoking cigarettes daily. Immediately sam met his ENT who told that tonsil stones are not dependent on his habit of smoking.
Sam was confused totally…
Are you too in the same confusion..?
Does smoking cause/increase tonsil stones in your mouth..?
I’ll tell you the truth today..
Does this really happen at all?
Yes there are number of cases, in which people experienced an increase in their tonsil stones due to smoking. Listen to these true stories..
True story: I frequently get tonsil stones, and I’m pretty sure its from smoking. If I remove one, then smoke a fair amount, withing 3 days I have another one. Anyone else get them from smoking?
True story:I smoked for three years in the army and have been smoke free for 4. What are the yellow hard pieces inside this huge cave now… they would not come out with tweezers. Please help
Why do ENT’s and other people don’t agree this..?
Though many people complain, they are getting tonsil stones while smoking, yet many ENT’s and websites don’t agree this.
They say “How can smoking cause tonsil stones? A tonsil stone is formed by food particles..” See How to get rid of my tonsil stones Quickly tonight?
The Truth that we have Discovered..
Yes, Today I am going to give you a complete clarity around this point. After days and days of research I have discovered this truth which many people don’t even know..
So First of all..
So in order to understand the truth we discovered, you first need to understand what a tonsil stone is and how it is actually formed..
A tonsil stone is an accumulation of food particle/mucus that combines with bacteria to form a solid stone like thing that is generally white/pale yellow in color.
In my book “Tonsil stones eliminator” I said that, a tonsil stone can be caused by two things i.e
- Food particles that got stuck in your mouth
- The post nasal drip due to mucus
How does smoking cause Tonsil stones?
Though many people complain that smoking caused them tonsil stones, still there is no correct evidence that was proved by researchers.
Now I’ll tell you how smoking can cause tonsil stones… See The Natural way for eliminating tonsil stones completely
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, or UPMC, reports that cigarettes affect phlegm production.
The lungs are normally cleaned by hairs called cilia, but their movement slows while a person is smoking and remains impaired for several hours afterward. Cilia cannot clean out the phlegm effectively, so it remains in the lungs and airway.”
This clearly proves that smoking can increase the production of phlegm in your body..
Thus here is the indirect relation..
Smoking -> Phlegm increase -> Post nasal Drip -> Tonsil stones
Yes.. It is already a proven by many researchers that smoking increases the phlegm. This phlegm then results in post nasal drip and settles in the throat and tonsils. The bacteria then start combining with this mucus, thus forming a hard calcium based stone which is nothing but the tonsil stone. See “Are your Tonsil stones because of post nasal drip? Do this now”
How Smoking can increase tonsil stones?
“Inhaling cigarette smoke drastically alters the composition of the oral microbiome, according to the results of a study published this month in the International Society for Microbial Ecology Journal.
To conduct this research, scientists from the NYU Langone Medical Center took mouthwash samples from a group of 1,204 individuals, made up of current and past smokers, as well as non-smokers. They analyzed the microbial DNA in these samples in order to determine the prevalence of the various bacteria present in the mouths of participants.
In doing so, they found that the oral microbiome of current smokers differed greatly from that of both past smokers and non-smokers, noting that cigarettes appear to promote the growth of over 150 different bacterial species while inhibiting the proliferation of a further 70.
Bacteria of the phylum Streptococcus were discovered to be more populous in the mouths of smokers than non-smokers.” See Should I Get my Tonsils removed? Is it the best way out?
The above study proves one thing..
Smoking increases the amount of bacteria present in the mouth..
Thus here is the indirect relation..
Smoking-> Increase in bacteria->More accumulations->More tonsil stones
Yes. Smoking proved to increase a large amounts of bacteria in ones mouth. This increase in the bacteria results in more accumulations and combinations of (mucus,bacteria) and (stuck up food particles,bacteria) thus resulting in formation of more number of tonsil stones.
It also can become your major cause for more and more recurring tonsil stones in your mouth. See “I am getting these stones again and again” What should I do?
This though smoking does not directly cause the tonsil stones. This is how smoking indirectly results in formation and increase in the amount of tonsil stones in the mouth.
So if you have the habit of smoking it is almost hard for you to get rid of your tonsil stones..
Smoking results in bacteria and mucus accumulation.
Again the Tonsil stones result in more and more bacteria accumulation resulting in sore, strep throats thus making your life so miserable.
Moreover the tonsil stones caused by smoking produces a terrible bad breath that is completely unbearable by anyone.
If you want to get rid of these tonsil stones caused by your smoking. If you don’t want to deal with these stones, for the rest of your life.
Here is what to do..
