Smokers 10 Years Faster heart attack

Despite the dangers of smoking have long and often featured, but the number of smokers in the world is still very much. Smokers tend to be faster 10 years of heart attack compared to nonsmokers.

"Someone who smoke are more likely to suffer a heart attack. And a heart attack will experience approximately a decade or earlier," said Dr.. Gregg Fonarow, a cardiologist from the School of Medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles as quoted by FoxNews, Thursday (13/10/2011).

The results also indicate that a person can suffer a heart attack in the absence of other risk factors if someone is smoking.

The study, led by Dr. Michael Howe of the University of Michigan Health System in Ann Arbor was studied about 3,600 people treated for heart attack or unstable angina. Unstable angina is a pain caused by poor blood flow to the heart is often a precursor to heart attacks.

Currently a quarter of patients with heart disease are smokers. And on average younger and with fewer health problems than someone who is not a smoker who suffered from heart disease.

Male patients who did not smoke in the hospital because of heart attacks on average at the age of 64 years. While men on average smokers hospitalized for a heart attack at age 55.

Female patients who never smoked on average 70 years old when admitted to hospital because of a heart attack. While the average women smokers hospitalized for a heart attack at age 57 years.

Smokers tend to have other health problems associated with the risk of heart disease, including high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes. In addition the researchers also found a smoker makes it possible to die within 6 months after a heart attack compared with someone who does not smoke.

Dr. Fonarow said the results of these studies is one example of the dangers posed by smoking to heart. And based on these findings can be emphasized stopping smoking can reduce the risk of heart disease.

"It's never too late to quit smoking. Even in a few days to stop smoking will be no reduction in risk of heart disease. As time goes by, in 1 or 2 years of much lower risk for heart attack. While from the standpoint of the risk of coronary heart disease, there will be direct benefits and who continue to extend over time, "explains Dr. Fonarow.

The results of these studies have been published in the American Journal of Cardiology. Research also shows female smokers are more likely to have a heart attack or other heart problems in the next few months after the initial attack or angina compared with male smokers.

"Based on the results of these studies can also be emphasized that, smoking is a risk factor that is extraordinary to be able to lead to acute coronary heart disease. And that the risk may be greater in women than in men," said Dr. Fonarow.
