Being together matters, both in marriage and smoking

The risk of stroke is high among couples who smoke according to a new study// which has reported a six times higher relative risk of total stroke than cigarette-smoking women with non-smoking spouses.

The study recorded the smoking and marital status and the incidence of total stroke and ischemic stroke (a stroke caused by a blood clot blocking blood flow to the brain) among various groups of women. The relative risk of total stroke was 5.7 times higher in cigarette-smoking women with cigarette-smoking spouses and 4.8 times higher for ischemic stroke, it said.

Non-smoking women married to smoking spouses did not have a significantly higher incidence of stroke compared to non-smoking women with non-smoking spouses. The findings emphasize that it is not just one's own smoking that contributes to stroke risk but also spouses' smoking.

If physicians are to make a real impact on reducing stroke risk among their patients, they should not only address their patients' smoking habits but also those of their spouses or partners in view of the above finding.

Description: Remember your promise to protect your wife by all means? You could be doing more harm to her than anybody through passive smoking. Time for change.
