Scientists have established the ideal time to stop smoking.

Scientists have established the ideal time to stop smoking.

In Dallas, at a meeting of the American Heart Association, doctors recommended smoking cessation within 40-45 years at the latest, because according to the latest research, the cardiovascular system is only in order after about 15 years after smoking cessation.

– We have shown that health has improved significantly after five years after quitting. The risk of having a heart attack, stroke and other heart problems decreases by about 38%. On the other hand, our study shows that these opportunities remain above the norm for at least 16 years. That is why it is now necessary to stop smoking., – said Meredith Duncan of Vanderbilt University in Nashville (USA).

She recalled that smoking-related illnesses are one of the main causes of premature death in old age. According to CDC statistics, about 6 million people die each year from tobacco and second-hand smokers, and every two out of three smokers die for reasons related to tobacco abuse.

Doctors have already established that tobacco and nicotine not only negatively affect the lungs. A year ago, biologists have proven that tobacco smoke accelerates the aging of all organs in the body. And it was previously confirmed that smoking contributes to the development of deafness and irreversibly changes the structure of the walls of blood vessels, making them more fragile.

In the long-term study of Duncan and her colleagues, almost nine thousand young people took part, their age at the time of the start of the observations was 27 years old. None of them at the beginning of the experiment did not suffer from chronic heart and blood vessels, and also had no problems with the lungs and tuberculosis. Moreover, they were in good physical and psychological form.

After 16 years of research, doctors have concluded that youth and good health do not guarantee protection against the effects of smoking. For example, the vast majority of heart attacks and strokes – about 70% – occurred in former and current smokers who consumed more than 20 years a day about a packet of cigarettes per day.

It also appeared that the more observant participants smoked, the more often they developed problems with the work of the lungs and the cardiovascular system. And the discontinuation of tobacco had only a major impact on health in the beginning, with time the efficiency of all indicators declined to normal. Even after 16 years, the body has not yet fully recovered.

This suggests that smokers, if they decided to take such a step, should leave cigarettes as quickly as possible to maximize their lifespan. And if after 45 years of bad habit, it is unlikely that the human body will recover.
