Regular smoking can cause damage to the spine

Smoking is the number one killer of health. Recently, a new study published in the Journal of health psychology once again warned that smoking may harm the spine.

Researchers from Curtin University in Australia investigated and followed up nearly 3000 volunteers, most of whom were young people around 20 years old, and some were 14-17 years old. The results show that people who smoke regularly have an increased risk of spinal problems in the future, including back pain, inflammatory diseases, and even degenerative diseases of intervertebral discs. Further analysis found that this risk is “two-way”, that is, among people with spinal problems, the probability of smoking addiction is also higher.
