More evidence about smoking

Doing healthy things make you less of a stroke risk - that just makes sense.

So a recently story about more such research didn't contain any big surprises.

But I did want to highlight one element in the story about how healthy habits linked to lower stroke risk:
“Being a former smoker was not associated with stroke risk, showing that cessation of smoking is effective in stroke prevention,” the researchers write in the journal Stroke.
So - stop smoking now, and you could wind up lowering your stroke risk! Better yet, if you've never started, just don't do it.
