Scientists are shocked by the results of a new study on smoking

Study Reveals The True Damage Of Marijuana Use (Health And Medical Video 2017).

Tobacco is even more dangerous than we used to think. The latest large-scale scientific work on this subject has yielded unexpected results.

A new study, conducted over 200 thousand people, gave the public very disturbing results. The work, published in BMC Medicine, showed that smokers die on average 10 years earlier than those who do not smoke.

"We knew that smoking was bad, but now we have our own proof. We were independent of all research, and it shocked us with our results," said Emily Banks, a researcher at the Australian National University, according to Lifter.

Before taking up the case, scientists assumed that about half of smokers were dying of illnesses associated with smoking. This is primarily a heart disease, cancer and respiratory disease. But in the end, the figure was significantly worse than expectations: 67% of all people who smoke cigarettes die one way or another. "We had a very large sample of respondents, so the results can be considered absolutely accurate," the Australians commented.

The researchers examined the personal medical cases of 20,4953 people who started smoking in the period from 2006 to 2009. By 2012 5593 of them died. On the whole, smokers have three times more chances to die ahead of time than those who never smoked.

And more. If you smoke a packet of cigarettes a day or more, then the risk of dying from the problems associated with your habit is four to five times as high as those who do not smoke more than 10 cigarettes a day.

But there are good news! The risk of premature death decreases with time after a person throws. People who find the strength to quit smoking before age 45, the risk of premature death is almost as low as those who never smoked at all.
