Housecall for Health: Who Quits Smoking Easier – Men or Women?
Quitting smoking may be a difficult habit to break, but it may be more difficult for one gender than the other. So who has an easier time, men or women?
FOX’s Colleen Cappon has the answer in today’s “Housecall for Health”:
When it comes to quitting smoking, a new study says it’s harder for women than men. Researchers at Yale School of Medicine find that women’s brains respond differently to nicotine.
When a person smokes, the number of nicotine receptors in the brain increase. But for women, both smokers and non-smokers have the same amount.
The findings suggest female smokers may benefit more from “stop-smoking” treatments that don’t involve nicotine.
