Smoking Increases Risk of Psychosis

 

Researchers at King´s College London say they have found a link between smoking and mental illness.

A study has shown that people with a first episode of psychosis were three times more likely to be smokers of cigarettes.

"While it is always hard to determine the direction of causality our findings indicate that smoking should be taken seriously as a possible risk factor for developing psychosis, and not dismissed simply as a consequence of the illness," says Dr. James MacCabe.

There is NOTHING good about smoking for the smoker and the victims that have to breathe the second-hand smoke. It is a vile habit.

packet cigarettes must be fare worse than say an addictive free rolling tobacco. Especially when smoked outside.
