Asthmatics, it pays to quit smoking

According to a recent research reported in the United Kingdom, asthmatics will witness almost a 15% improvement in their lung function within two months of completely// staying off cigarettes.

Researcher Dr. Neil C. Thomson said, "The improvement in lung function seen after smoking cessation was clinically significant. It demonstrates that there is a reversible component to the harmful effects of smoking on the airways in asthma. The degree of improvement noted for smoking cessation far exceeds that of high-dose anti-inflammatory treatment, such as oral prednisolone, 40 milligrams daily for two weeks, which had no effect on lung function in smokers in our current study and in our previous work"

The findings have been published in the July issue of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine.
