  1. Quit smoking and wounds heal better

    New York (Reuters) - Quitting smoking for as little as 4
    weeks can dramatically reduce the odds of wound infection
    after surgery, according to a report.

    Dr Lars Tue Sorensen and colleagues from Bispebjerg
    University Hospital in Copenhagen, studied the healing of
    small incisions in 78 volunteers.

    Wounds became infected in 12 per cent of smokers,
    significantly more than the 2 per cent of never-smokers.

    In addition, wounds broke open in 12 per cent of smokers,
    while no ruptures were seen among never-smokers.

    After 4 weeks, abstinent smokers were significantly less
    likely to develop a wound infection than continuous
    smokers.

    Just 4 weeks of abstinence from smoking "reduces wound
    infections to a level similar to never-smokers,"
    Sorensen's team concludes.

    Let us sit on the grass and tell stories of Dr. Jai Maharaj

    <snip lots of scientific data>

    You wont get many replies in this group, people here have a see no evil,
    hear no evil mentality. You see 'we' are the enemy (were fascists you see),
    not an addictive, body destroying bunch of inhaled chemicals. Go figure.
