Both intensity and duration of smoking have long-durationeffects on the peril for three main atherosclerotic diseases: peripheral artery disease(PAD), coronary heart disease(CHD), and stroke, according to a new study. The research was published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.Ning Ding—from the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine(JHUSOM), Baltimore—along with colleagues analyzed data from 13,355 participants (aged from 45 to 64 Years) in the Atherosclerosis Risk In Communities(ARIC) study without CHD, PAD, or stroke at baseline (1987–1989). The scientists sought to assess the long-duration connection of cigarette smoking and cessation with the occurrence of CHD, PAD, or stroke.

The researchers stated that during afollow-up of 26 Years, there were 1,798 CHD cases, 492 PAD cases, and 1,106 stroke cases. There was a dose-reactionlink between pack-years of smoking and the three results; this link was strongest for PAD. The outline remained constant while examining duration and intensity disjointedly. While anextended period of smoking cessation was constantly related to a lesser risk for CHD, PAD, and stroke, an importantly elevated risk remained for at least 30–20 Years after smoking cessation for PAD and CHD, respectively.

On a related note, recently, a study showed that quitting smoking is linked with decreasedjeopardy of bladder cancer in postmenopausal women. A latest study of postmenopausal women showed that quitting cigarette smoking was linked with considerably reduced peril of bladder cancer. The most significant decline in risk was seen in the first 10 Years following quitting, with anuncertain but persisted decline in later years.The research was published in the journal Cancer Prevention Research and was conducted by Yueyao Li from Indiana University in Bloomington.The research showed that, compared to never smokers, former smokers had twofold risk of bladder cancer and existing smokers had over threefold the risk.
