For those in retirement age or approaching such a stage in their life and think “what’s the point of stopping smoking now?”, it is actually never too late to give up and enjoy a boost in health, cutting the chance of dying from smoking-related disease.

A study carried out by U.S. researchers found that smokers over the age of 70 are three times more likely to die compared to people who have never previously smoked. Interestingly, when they looked at people in this age group that had quit in the sixties, only 27.9% had died, compared to a third that had never quit.
