Menthol cigs may increase chance of stroke

Breaking news! This is big, big, big, news. Smoking can kill you.

Here’s some more bad news; a new study says menthol cigarette smokers are twice as likely to stroke out. The experts don’t know why menthol increased the risk of stroke, but triggers no other conditions like heart attack, lung disease or hypertension.

The risk of stroke was three times higher for women and non-blacks.

You’ve heard it before and you’ll hear it again… smoking can kill you! If that doesn’t convince you to quit, the possibility of a stroke probably won’t either.

Oh well, different strokes for different folks.
