Two in Three Smokers Die from Tobacco
This is the terrifying statistic from research recently undertaken in Australia. These findings are based on the following of 200,000 Australian smokers over 6 years above the age of 45. Smoking what some to be considered a small amount of cigarettes (10 per day) doubled the risk of death, whilst those who smoked 20 per day are four to five times likely to die.
Though there is a difference in smoking behaviour between the UK and Australia in that in Australia 13% of adults smoke compared to 20% here in the UK, the implications of this research cannot be ignored. With the death yesterday of Leonard Nimoy from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), the former smoker, who quit 30 years previous to his death was previously quoted as saying “I quit smoking 30 years ago. Not soon enough.”
