August
2008

A recent study of non-smokers who are, or had been married to smokers found that those who lived with smokers were at significantly higher risk for stroke, with individuals whom had also been smokers themselves at the highest risk. Non-smokers who were married to former smokers were not at higher risk for stroke.
