Norwegian researchers link smoking to more diseases

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - There's even stronger evidence now that smoking is hazardous to your health. This time, the results come from a 30 year study in Norway. It shows that smoking is strongly linked to death from all causes, especially cardiovascular disease.

Researchers in Norway followed 54,000 men and women beginning in 1974 and through the next three decades. They found that 45 percent of the heavy smokers died during the study, compared to just 18 percent of those who died, but had never smoked.
