Research from Kings College

In a study that made headlines on Sunday on the BBC  found that smoking ‘rots’ the brain by damaging memory

Scientists at Kings College Hospital  have found that smoking rots the brain. Researchers at King’s were investigating links between the likelihood of a heart attack or stroke and the state of the brain. In a study that made headlines on Sunday on the BBC  found that smoking ‘rots’ the brain by damaging memory, learning and reasoning (you can read the report here).



Scientists involved said people needed to be aware that lifestyles could damage the mind as well as the body.


Dr Simon Ridley, from Alzheimer’s Research UK, said: “Research has repeatedly linked smoking and high blood pressure to a greater risk of cognitive decline and dementia, and this study adds further weight to that evidence.


This is yet another health reason to kick the chemical, emotional, and behavioral habit of smoking cigarettes.


My ‘One Session’ stop smoking programme, addresses all the emotional and habitual issues associated with smoking, making it easy to leave as a non smoker.
