Many smokers believe very light smoking or not smoking every day may reduce their health risks. In a study of 290,000 middle-aged and older smokers, researchers found long-time, low-volume smokers had significantly higher mortality risks compared with those who had never smoked or quit. Those who reported consistently smoking 1-10 cigarettes a day had an 87% greater chance of dying prematurely. These associations were similar for men and women.

LifeTip: All smokers—even light smokers—can benefit from smoking cessation. Watch “Overcome Addictions Naturally” with Dr. David DeRose for more recommendations.
