Women Who Quit Smoking Do Live Longer

Women Who Quit Smoking Do Live Longer | Healthy Living | Scoop.it
Life expectancy was dramatically improved among participants in Great Britain's Million Women Study who quit smoking compared with continuous smokers, confirming the previously uncertain benefits of smoking cessation in women, researchers said.

Although women who stopped smoking around age 50 remained at significantly higher risk of all-cause mortality compared with never-smokers (relative risk 1.56, 95% CI 1.49 to 1.64), it was much lower than the tripled risk of death seen in current smokers.

"Even cessation at about 50 years of age avoids at least two-thirds of the continuing smoker's excess mortality in later middle age."

"Stopping well before age 40 years would avoid well over 90% of the excess hazard in continuing smokers."
