What kind of diseases can you get from smoking ciggaretes off the ground?


One of my friends has this disgusting habit, and I would like to know what kind of diseases you can get from this. He says nothing will happen to him, but besides lung cancer, what illnesses/diseases can you get from smoking used ciggaretes off the ground?
----------

Depends on how old the cigarette and existing saliva is. Most diseases and viruses cannot like outside the body for extended period of time. Some Hepatitis strains can survive for several days, as can some worse strains of the flu. Honestly, I'd be more worried about the germs it has picked up off the ground than diseases. While it's not THAT big a risk, it is a risk and it's just plain gross. Try to talk him out of it.  (+ info)

I was doing some research (helping a friend) who complains of being constantly dizzy and disoriented. He had a panic attack in his car a few months ago and now everytime he gets into his car he comes close to suffering another one. However, the dizziness and disorientation (he also has problems sleeping) are constant, car or not. His parents think it's anxiety but I'm not quite sure.

What diseases does the doctor check for during a checkup?


I had to go to the doctor for a checkup and various immunizations before college. I wanted to also get tested for STDs. The thing is, I'm pretty sure I don't have any (I'm not sexually active) but I don't want any surprises like HPV from sharing lip gloss. Anyway, I went to the doctor last week for a checkup and I wanted to know what diseases the doctors check for.
