smoking causes brain damage

A study of more than 8,800 smokers over the age of 50 revealed high blood pressure excess weight and cognitive decline. The study tested the study participants at the beginning of the study, four years later and again eight years after the initiation of the study.

The results revealed that not only did the smokers suffer an increased risk of heart attack and stroke, but cognitive decline was also significant – the greatest declines were observed in those with the greatest physical health risks.
