Middle-aged smokers with high cholesterol, BP 'cut life short by 10yrs'
London, Sept 18 (ANI): Middle-aged smokers with high cholesterol and blood pressure face a ten-year cut in their lives, warns a new study.
The warning follows an Oxford University study of 19,000 men over an average of 38 years.
According to researchers, the deadly combo cuts life expectancy by 10 years compared with individuals who do not smoke and have normal blood and cholesterol levels.
People with other health worries, such as being overweight, could be shaving 15 years off their lives, reports The Daily Express.
In the study, boffins found that people with three risk factors for heart disease were three times more likely to die from vascular disease than men sans the risk factors.
The study is published in the British Medical Journal. (ANI)
