Every now and then - usually following a discussion with an exercising, supplement-taking smoker - I feel compelled to point out the obvious. As noted in this Medical News Today article, smoking drastically reduces your life span: the typical smoker loses 25 years of healthy life. 25 years! Research groups are spending hundreds of millions of dollars trying to figure out how to add even a decade to the healthy human life span, and you smokers throw away more than twice that time. Nothing available today can give you those years back ... other than to quit smoking. So if you are interested in living a longer, healther life, first things first!
