Exercise Helps Smokers to Quit Smoking, to Remain Smoke-Free and to Reduce the Risk of Death

April 25, 2012   Exercise may help smokers to quit and remain smokefree, according to new data presented at the World Congress of Cardiology. Moreover, exercise increases life expectancy in smokers and non-smokers alike. The study of 434,190 people who went through medical examination program at a private fee-paying company between 1996 and 2008 in Taiwan revealed that active smokers (those engaged in at least moderate activity) were 55 per cent more likely to quit smoking that those that were inactive. Furthermore, these active smokers were 43 per cent less likely to relapse than smokers that were inactive.
