According to Fox, a study in England found that the decline in cognitive function will appear at the early age of 45.
“Although we already know that smoking is the cause of respiratory disease, cancer, and cardiovascular disease, this study also indicate that smoking has a detrimental effect on cognitive aging,” said Severine Sabia, head of the research team at University College London.
In an interview published in the ‘Archives of General Psychiatry Journal’, she also describes the effects of cognitive decline are more experienced men. The study involved 5,099 men and 2,137 women.
“A male smokers aged 50 years showed the same cognitive decline as men age 60 who does not smoke,” said Sabia.
She also found that if men who quit smoking for 10 years, before the first study, still showed a degradation in the cognitive.
Sabia and her team, will conduct further studies on the difference in risk in men and women in this study. She will examine more deeply the mechanism of smoking and a greater risk in men.
