New research findings indicate that triple Smoking tripled the risk of death by heart disease and stroke. The world’s most comprehensive study of the Australian National University shows for the first Time, as well as the Smoking only a few cigarettes a day and the entire cardiovascular System damage.
The research team followed for seven years, about 190,000 smokers and non-smokers aged 45 and over in Australia and she studied to cardiovascular diseases. They found that in smokers, a three-fold risk to die of cardiovascular disease. In comparison to people who have never smoked, you will die twice as often from a heart attack, stroke, or congestive heart failure. In addition, you can get five times more likely to have peripheral circulatory disorders, such as tissue necrosis.
The author of the study Emily Banks from the National centre for epidemiology and population health says: "If a smoker has a heart attack or a stroke, it is very likely that this was caused by Smoking." Particularly alarming, the researchers found that even in the case of persons who smoked only an average of five cigarettes per day, a doubling of the mortality rate due to cardiovascular diseases was observed.
But there is also good news: In every age many health benefits of stopping Smoking. 45 years, about 90 percent of the heart cycle can thus be risks due to Smoking to avoid. "No matter how much you smoke or how long you have smoked, the best time to stop Smoking, is jetzt", Banks says.
