Smoking Doubles The Risk Of Stroke

| Filed under: HealthAddictionCancerSmoking

As if there wasn't already enough, here is more bad news for smokers!

A study of 982 stroke patients, 264 of which smoked cigarettes, has found that smokers are TWICE as likely to have strokes as non-smokers and they'll get them almost decade before non-smokers!

Dr. Andrew Pipe, one of the study's authors, said:

"The information from this study provides yet another important piece of evidence about the significance of helping people stop smoking. It also alerts the neurology community to the importance of addressing smoking in stroke patients."

The good news is that those odds will decrease to that of a non-smoker within 2 years of quitting!

We think you've looked "cool" long enough and it's time to take your last cancer-causing drag. If you have any questions or need help along the way, check out what FitPerez smoking counselor Craig Nabat has to say!
