Housecall for Health: Smoking Women’s Hearts
Developing certain health problems from smoking may depend on your gender.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon reports in today’s “Housecall for Health”…
A new study proves that women who smoke are 25% more likely to develop heart disease than men.
The study, published in the Lancet Medical Journal, reviewed data from more than two million people internationally. The reason? Researchers say women may extract a greater amount of toxins from cigarettes than men.
Previously, smoking was thought to double the risk of a heart attack for both men and women.
