By Barry Pekilis:
"LOTS! A new study (coordinated by the University of Manitoba and
involving 10 sites in the United States and Canada) proves for the first
time that smokers who quit wind up with healthier lungs, no matter how
long they had smoked. The study involved more than 5,800 smokers who
were victims of chronic obstructive lung disease: a combination of emphysema
and bronchitis (the fourth leading cause of death in the U.S.A.).
"The study was the first proof that if you stop smoking at any age, you will have healthier lungs.
"It was the largest study ever conducted on the prevention of lung
disease and showed without a doubt that quitting smoking is the most
effective way of preventing lung function decline.
"So there you have it, conclusive proof the it worth quitting no matter
how old you are or how long you have smoked for."
