Do you smoke cigarettes, pipes, weeds? Do you know people who smoke? Do you have loved ones, friends, family members, who smoke? Then the information below is very relevant to their wellbeing.
Do you know that #smokers are reliable to die young? And very few human species have that immunity system that enable them survive longer than others? The reality on ground, however, smoking kills and people have often been encouraged to #quit smoking habits.
Though smokers are encouraged to quit smoking at any given age, #researchers have ventured to understand and find out the ideal age to quit smoking and the aftermath effect.
It’s never too late to stop smoking, experts say. They’ve found that even quitting after your 60th birthday can help add years to your life, reported LEADERSHIP.
#Scientists from the #German Cancer Research Center reviewed info from 25 different studies involving 503,905 people from #Europe and the U.S. age 60 and over. Of these people, 37,952 died from #heart disease.
The researchers found that smokers are twice as likely to die from heart disease as people who’ve never smoked.
The risk of dying depended on the number of cigarettes smoked over a lifetime. But after a person kicks the habit, that risk begins to fall.
On average, former smokers are just 1.37 times more likely to die from heart disease than those who’ve never smoked.
The good news for the over-60 crowd is that within the first 5 years of quitting, the risk of getting cardiovascular disease drops a lot. And the risk continues to fall as long as they stay smoke-free.
