The risk of heart disease and stroke is 38 percent lower in pre-smokers, 15 years after giving up smoking, according to US researchers.
According to research, the risk of having a stroke in pre-smokers stabilizes within the five years after the decision. But a new study has gone long: smokers who smoke one pack of cigarettes a day for 20 years should wait for 15 years to see returning to the normal levels of the risk of heart disease and stroke.
These results were received by researchers from the University of Vanderbilt in the United States, published by the Daily Mail, and will be presented at the American Heart Society. Their analysis was based on data of approximately 8,700 people aged 50 and over, half of whom are heavy smokers. The researchers found that if the risk of cardiovascular disease decreases after five years of giving up smoking, the heart of smokers is light, it will take more than 10 years to get rid of all Destructive damage caused by smoking.
Love goes down but it's still
After 5 years, participants who stopped smoking were experiencing a risk of 38 percent less cardiovascular disease than those who did not give up smoking. But you have to wait for 15 years, so that the risk of cardiovascular disease for pre-smokers returns to the corresponding levels of those who never smoke. Meredith Duncan, leading study author and researcher at the University of the British Medical Center, who interviewed her, said the heart and blood vessels are the quickest to recover. But full and complete recovery will take a number of more years.
After just 20 minutes of giving up the last cigarette, the person's rate of heart and arterial weight of the person who has given up the quit returns to normal level w / . After 12 hours, the level of carbon monoxide is completely stabilized in its blood. After a week, the cardiovascular system "reduces their prominence to the chemicals that contain cigarette smoking, which also produces blood (adhesive) strains, and so cause clot – unwanted clot, "according to the American researcher. Although the risk of heart attack is low, it continues.
"So we can not over-benefit the benefits of smoking cessation to people who smoke well" he said. And cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death in industrial countries. Smoking, drinking alcohol, sugar and an inactive way of life are the four main causes of death. Smoking has been steadily increasing among women for almost 50 years.
