American scientists have come to the conclusion that cough and other respiratory disorders in young people associated with smoking go away after two weeks of quitting it, reports EmaxHealth.
Researchers at the University of Texas recruited students in whom persistent smoking caused daily coughing or other respiratory symptoms to participate in the study. The age of the participants ranged from 18 to 24 years old. All of them smoked 5 to 10 cigarettes a day for a period of one to five years.
One group of volunteers managed to abstain from smoking for two weeks, the other continued to smoke.
After this period, the students from the first group experienced a significant improvement in their health - cough and other symptoms worried them no more than two days a week. The condition of the members of the control group did not change.
According to researchers Karen Calabro and Alexander Prokhorov, the findings should be used when counseling young people who quit smoking - that the improvement in well-being occurs within the first weeks after quitting smoking is a strong motivating factor.
The research report is published in the journal Pediatric Allergy, Immunology, and Pulmonology.
