New study shows link between smoking and MS

New research into the impact of smoking on multiple sclerosis (MS) has found that quitting smoking may cause a slowing of mobility deterioration to match the rate of progression in people who’ve never smoked.

Previous studies have shown that smoking can make MS worse. It’s associated with a faster accumulation of disability and could accelerate the transition from relapsing to secondary progressive MS. This study provides further data that smokers’ mobility deteriorates more quickly, compared with non-smokers. This is independent of anxiety and depression – two factors also thought to influence motor deterioration.
