Study finds smokers at greater risk of hearing loss

Study finds smokers at greater risk of hearing loss

Researchers measured their smoking habits during this time to get a picture of each study subject's behaviour, satisfaction, reward and enjoyment from smoking cigarettes.

And the more cigarettes a person smoked on a daily basis, the more likely he or she was to experience hearing loss.

Healthcare professionals working in the region will be encouraged to support smokers who choose to quit by vaping.

This is according to a new report from Public Health England, which has indicated that four in ten smokers and ex-smokers incorrectly think that the nicotine content in cigarettes is the primary cause of smoking-related cancer risks.

The study, co-authored by former Western PhD graduate student Stefanie De Jesus, was recently published by the journal Addictive Behaviors.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, smoking is the No. 1 cause of preventable disease and deaths, and accounts for about 1 in 5 deaths. The study found even when participants cut the number of cigarettes they were lighting up, they didn't smoke the remaining ones more aggressively to compensate.

However, the research showed that most of the who used e-cigarettes to quit did not switch entirely and were still smoking traditional cigarettes.

"E-cigarettes could indeed provide more population benefit if they were more effective as a cessation tool", Soneji said.

Alex Clark, executive director of Consumer Advocates for Smoke-Free Alternatives Association, an e-cigarette industry lobby group, called the study's results "surprising", given government studies showing an overall decline in smoking.

He added: "E-cigs will likely cause more public health harm than benefit".

Representatives from Reynolds American Inc., which owns market-leading e-cigarette Vuse, and competitor Altria Group Inc., maker of MarkTen and APEX, didn't immediately respond to requests for comment. I determined to finally quit smoking. The study didn't set out to prove a link between hearing loss and smoking, but makes a case that it contributes to it. In October, the FDA addressed youth use of e-cigarettes and other electronic nicotine-delivery systems (ENDS) through its "The Real Cost" campaign. Studies suggest that 52% of users are ex-smokers and 45% are current smokers. "Vaping should be made a more convenient, as well as a safer option".
