Smokers And Early MenopauseSmokers And Early Menopause, Smoking is harmful to health and long the debate has been demonstrated by many studies. Every time the bad habit is related to one or other inconveniences caused to women.

However, on this occasion, the magazine reports menopause made a statement very surprising in relation to smoking among women.

Journal reports that all women who smoke will no doubt continue addressing the problems of early menopause.

The statements became the center of attention after the results of Hong Kong University researchers’ new study says that, compared with non-smoking women, smokers became more likely to experience early menopause problems .

In order to study the most reliable results, the researchers decided to track nearly 6,000 women from different regions, including USA, Poland, Turkey and Iran.

Meanwhile, when study completed their tests, they were surprised to discover that all women smoke fall into the age group 43 to 50 without doubt to suffering a year later menopause than nonsmokers.

Meanwhile, the researchers said further that the episode of early menopause was associated entirely with the increase of other health problems like osteoporosis and severe damage to the heart.

Along with these findings, the researchers also tracked the previous study related to the same issue and when they combined their results with the findings of previous study, we observed that almost 40% of smokers affected early menopause symptoms.

Commenting on the findings from the Mailman School of the University Professor of Public Health, Jennie Kline, said the study findings certainly gave reason to doubt the doctors, who always believed that smoking undoubtedly have a major effect on how the bodies of women handle estrogen levels.

Royal Brompton Hospital Medical metabolic consultant, Dr. John Stevenson said: “There is no increased risk of heart disease and increased risk of stroke is significant only in women who took more than 10 years.”
