Blood vessel works fast get back after smokers leave the habit. According to a new research, leaving the smoking habit will lead to a reduced risk of heart disease and heart attack. This research included more than 1500 people taking part in the medical test to help them give up smoking. Before and one year after the participants stopped smoking. Doctors used high frequency sound to determine the patient’s flow-medicated dilation, a measure of the health of the brachial artery. It is the main artery of the upper arm.
If it is able to relax the brachial artery, it is a related ability to relax the heart arteries. According to The university of Wisconsin researchers, it predicts risk for future heart and blood vessel disease. They compared the FMD readings from patients who successfully quit with those who stop and then continue smoking.
According to the study made by the author James Stein, an associate professor of medicine at UW School of medicine and public Health, the patients who give up smoking had improved the functions of blood vessels. They gained weight which is considered as a common side effect of smoking termination.
FMD improved 1 percent of patients who had quit smoking for a full year. People who permanently quit smoking are less likely to have heart attack and heart disease.
