Smoking tobacco cigarettes is not only bad for the smoker’s health but also for people living with him. Experts have found that non-smokers who share a house with regular smokers are risking of losing their memory by 20% compared to those who are not exposed to second hand smoke. The report was published in the journal Addiction.
The report found that non-smokers who tend to be more around regular smokers or share a house with smokers forget 20 percent more than non-smokers who have none or little exposure to second-hand smoke. The result also showed that smokers risked the highest rate of memory loss of all, recollecting 30percent less than non-smokers who are not exposed to passive smoking or second-hand smoking.
Researchers at the Collaboration for Drug and Alcohol Research Group at Northumbria University in the UK divided participants into three different groups in order to read and explore the connection other people’s smoke (second hand smoke) and daily memory problems.
The comparison involved two groups of current smokers with two groups of non-smokers comprised of people who were regularly exposed to second-hand smoke and the other which was not. The findings of the research showed that those who were exposed to smoke forgot 20 percent more in the memory tests than those who were not exposed to second hand smoke. The result with smokers was the worst who forgot 30 percent and they were outdone by both groups.
Dr. Tony Heffernan, lead researcher, said: "According to recent reports by the World Health Organisation, exposure to second-hand smoke can have serious consequences on the health of people who have never smoked themselves, but who are exposed to other people's tobacco smoke. Our findings suggest that the deficits associated with second-hand smoke exposure extend to everyday cognitive function. We hope our work will stimulate further research in the field in order to gain a better understanding of the links between exposure to second-hand smoke, health problems and everyday cognitive function."
Adam Davis, a heavy smoker for 10 years after using e cigarette said, "I felt that the main thing using electronic cigarettes did was a change in my smoking habits; therefore, making it easier for me to quit smoking. I had tried to quit several times before that, using patches and gums. This seemed like a more laid-back approach."
At the end of the day, everyone wants to have a healthier version of themselves. Electronic cigarettes is a viable option to get smokers on the path to a tobacco-free life. http://electroniccigarettehub.org not only provides information, but also free starter kits for those who would like to be proactive about quitting smoking.
