Researchers have reported that the damaged lungs of people who quit smoking still recover up to 40 percent of those who smoke, that too naturally. Researchers recently conducted a study of the dropout smoking habit that is mentioned in the lungs can be healthy yourself again. Smoking can cause lung cancer, but by quitting smoking, the body can deal with damaged cells on its own.
On the other hand, researchers of the Velcus Sanger Institute said in a joint statement that the most important thing of the study is that this habit can be abandoned at any time. Many of those who included different sections in the study had finished packets of about 15,000 cigarettes in their lives. Within a few years when such people quit smoking, the cells that destabilized their airways showed no evidence of tobacco damage.
16 people participated in the study. Among them were some people who have smoked throughout their lives. Some relied on this habit, adults who never smoked, and some children were included. Lung biopsies of these people were analyzed in the lab.
Research on 16 different categories of people
- In smokers, 9 out of 10 lung cells were found to have mutations that can cause cancer, while the damaged cells of smokers were replaced by healthy cells. His lungs were exactly like those of never smokers.
- Up to 40 percent of lung cells in the first smokers were healthy, ie 4 times healthier than smokers. Campbell stated that damaged cells have not magically been able to repair themselves, rather healthy cells take their place.
