Smoking Linked to Schizophrenia

Smoking Linked to Schizophrenia

Another good reason to quit smoking!

New research from Kings College London has shown that smoking may increase the risk of schizophrenia. People who smoke may be twice as likely to develop psychosis (hallucinations and delusions). It is not clear yet whether smoking causes schizophrenia or whether, for people who are predisposed to the condition, it acts as a catalyst.
