Heavy Smoker? Lose a Decade

Heavy Smoker? Lose a Decade

Want another reason to quit smoking ? A new study says that the unhealthy habit robs almost 10 years off your life. Finnish researchers looked at the cardiovascular risks and smoking habits of 1,658 healthy men in 1974. After re-evaluation 26 years later, they found that participants who had never smoked lived an average of 10 years longer than those who were heavy smokers (more than 20 cigarettes per day).

The data also revealed that the quality of life of heavy smokers who survived greatly differed from those who never smoked. Heavy smokers had more problems functioning physically and role limitations caused by health issues. Also, even though almost 70 percent of the heavy smokers quit by 2000, researchers found that the effect of smoking still strongly impacted ex-smokers’ death and quality of life for study participants.

Translation: While quitting is key for living a better and healthier life, it’s best not to start smoking.

Smoking Tied to Memory Loss

Middle-aged smokers are more likely to suffer from memory loss than middle-aged people who do not smoke, according to a new study.

Researchers at the Institut National de la Sante et de la Recherche Medicale in Villejuif, France, examined data on 10,308 people between the ages of 35 and 55. They found that smokers ranked in the lowest 20 percent of cognitive tests gauging their memory, reasoning, vocabulary and verbal fluency.

The researchers also found, however, that people who were ex-smokers had considerably higher cognitive test results than current smokers, showing that smoking cessation had a positive effect on reversing the ill effects.

The study also found that people who stopped smoking had better overall health than current smokers. Visit smokefree.gov for tips on how to kick the habit.
