Passive Smokers More Easily Murdered

Ill because of smoking is the fruit of an unhealthy lifestyle. But if the disease by inhaling cigarette smoke from smokers really ironic. Now more and more evidence that passive smokers are more easily found murdered.

People who breathe only secondhand smoke aka tobacco smoke, even two times more likely to die from heart disease. Previously also been many cases of passive smoking lung cancer.

"These findings add to evidence that links between passive smokers are more susceptible to cardiovascular disease (heart disease and stroke)," Dr. Steven Schroeder, Director of the Smoking Cessation Leadership Center at the University of California, San Francisco, as reported from ChinaDaily, Friday (25 / 6 / 2010).

In the study Dr Mark Hamer of University College London and colleagues used the saliva test that can measure the number of people who have become passive smokers.

Researchers conducted tests on 13,000 people in England and Scotland. The study then continued for an average of eight years, to record the participants who developed heart disease and died.

During the study, 32 of about 1500 people who never smoked but high exposure to cigarette smoke reportedly died due to heart disease.

In the study which was published in the Journal of American College of Cardiology This latest edition, Hamer team also found evidence that secondhand smoke triggers inflammation in the body, known as risk factors for heart disease.

"Although the biological mechanism is not fully understood, there is growing evidence indicating that exposure to fine particles (such as those in cigarette smoke), can cause mild to severe inflammation," said Dr. C. Arden Pope III, an economist and environmental epidemiology at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
