Smokers are three times more likely to die
New research has shown that smoking is even worse for you that we thought. In he past it was estimated that half of all smokers will die because of their habit, but it’s now believed around 2 out of every 3 smokers will die early.
The study followed 200,000 smokers over four years and found that:
- two thirds of deaths in current smokers can be attributed to tobacco use
- Smoking reduces life expectancy by 10 years
- Light smokers also face double risk of early death
