Music Monday: Quit Smoking…for the Great American SmokeOut

Nov

I’m sure you know smoking isn’t healthy. Most discussions are about the risk of lung cancer. But did you know that cigarette smoking increases the risk of intracranial aneurysms in middle-aged women?  

 

According to a recent article published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery and Psychiatry, “Women aged between 30 and 60 years with a positive smoking history have a four-fold increased risk for having an unruptured intracranial aneurysm (UIA), and a seven-fold increased risk if they have underlying chronic hypertension. These findings indicate that women aged between 30 and 60 years with a positive smoking history might benefit from a screening recommendation.”

 

If you’re a smoker or have a family member or friend who is,  join the Great American SmokeOut on November 19th and start your journey to a healthier, smoke-free life!
