Quit Smoking Now - Live 10 Years Longer

It may surprise you to learn that, in both the US and the UK, smoking ranks higher than obesity as the leading cause of preventable deaths. This fact has spurred UK researchers, funded by Cancer Research UK, the British Heart Foundation and the Medical Research Council, into conducting one of the largest studies ever undertaken into the effects of smoking and, crucially, the benefits of quitting.

To do this, a team of researchers, led by professor Richard Peto of the University of Oxford, recruited 1.3 million female participants aged between 50 to 65. This age group was important for one vital reason: they were the first generation who smoked in a sustained way through to the modern day and in a way comparable to today’s smoking habits.

In a review beginning 1996 and lasting to 2001, the scientists set out to track the lives of the 1.2 million women who were viable for the study to see what prolonged smoking did to their health and also whether the benefits of quitting smoking would be as pronounced as had been hoped. The study, published in the Lancet, contained some eye-opening, and encouraging, findings.  Read the results.
