 One More Reason Why You Should Not Smoke

Passive smokers run an increased risk of damaging their memory, a recent research has revealed.

When groups exposed to second hand smoke were tested on time-based memory and event based memory, results revealed that non-smokers exposed to second-hand smoke failed to remember to a greater extent in the memory tests, than non-smokers not exposed to second-hand smoke.


Researchers clearly perceived reduction in daily cognitive function with exposure to second hand smoke.
