Smokers could lose one third of their everyday memory, warn experts
September 22, 2011
People who smoke could lose around one third of their everyday memory, researchers say.
A study by a team at Northumbria University has shown that smokers lose more of their memory when compared to non-smokers.
And the research also found that those who kicked the habit saw their ability to recollect information restored to almost the same level as non-smokers.
Those who took part were asked to recall small details, such as music acts listed to play at the students’ union and tasks completed at various points – known as real world memory test. Smokers performed badly, remembering just 59 per cent of tasks.
