Women Are More Susceptible To Health Effects Of Smoking

Women are more susceptible to the health effects of smoking. Women who smoke may develop severe lung disease at younger ages with lower amounts of smoking. That’s according to a new study. Researchers in Norway compared 954 patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder to 295 control subjects. They found that women with COPD were, on average, younger than men who had smoked for fewer years suggesting that women may experience lung damage with overall lower levels of smoking.
