Date: 26th October 2012
A latest Norway-based study leads to the conclusion that smoking cessation helps in improving the symptoms of Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux in some of the patients.
The experiment was undertaken by enrolling around 30,000 individuals suffering from reflux symptoms and when it came to a close, it became apparent that people who minimized their cigarette intake or those who quit smoking had experienced a significant improvement in symptoms in comparison to those who were sticking to smoking cigarettes on a regular basis.
According to Dr Eivind Ness-Jensen, who worked at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology and Levanger Hospital`s HUNT Research Centre, the results obtained from this study offers convincing evidence and makes it apparent that quit smoking can be utilized as an effective scheme for treating gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD).
