Smokers should be aware of the potential damage done to the brain and other vital organs through toxins in cigarettes entering the blood, England's chief medical officer said, as Public Health England launches a new stop-smoking campaign. Professor Dame Sally Davies added:
Smoking is the major cause of premature death, with one in two smokers dying prematurely from smoking-related diseases, and it is extremely worrying that people still underestimate the health harms associated with it.
However, it is not all doom and gloom for smokers looking to quit this New Year. Within five years of stopping smoking, your risk of stroke can be reduced to the same as a lifetime non-smoker.
