Smoking and Atherosclerosis: Risk Factor Reduction
Atherosclerosis causes more deaths in developed societies than any other disease. It is a disease that has no cure, and it is unlikely that one will ever be found. While it is true that certain drugs and surgical procedures have some very limited palliative use, the real answer lies in prevention. Few would deny that giving up smoking (or better still never starting it) is an essential part of any preventive strategy. It is, moreover, an important factor at all stages of prevention; primary, secondary and tertiary.
