  • Smokers Twice As Likely To Go Blind

    Smokers are twice as likely to lose their sight as non-smokers, according to the Royal National Institute for the Blind.

    The charity is launching a hard-hitting poster campaign across Britain to raise awareness of the connection between smoking and sight loss.

    The RNIB has found only 7% of people are aware of such a link.

    Experts believe around 54,000 smokers have developed a condition called age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

    The AMD Alliance UK claims the link is as strong as that between smoking and lung cancer.

    The RNIB is calling on the Government to introduce warnings on cigarette packets about the risk to eyesight.

    "Smoking is the only proven cause of AMD that people can do anything about. The message is simple - do not smoke," said Steve Winyard, head of campaigns at the RNIB.

    Research has shown the risk starts to decrease 10 years after smokers quit the habit.

      Aha. So are people who take viagra. It was on tv awhile ago...

      Anyways, being blind is better than getting lung cancer, there's enough reasons for people to stop smoking already.

                but smokers are NASTY - it's sickening, and fags taste like shit, i would know. that's when i stopped - after my first try - one try and i stopped. it's fucking sick and disgusting. ppl who smoke stink, cut years off their lives and kill other ppl around them.

                        Virgin lungs almost always cough. But people don't realy know how to inhale when it's their first time, most people, or atleast a lot, seem to try to swallow the smoke. I didn't gag my first time, small cough though.
