Longevity Study

Longevity Study

Science magazine publishes a study by Raymond Pearl of the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health looking at the life spans of 6,813 men, roughly half of whom smoked. Pearl’s study shows that the life span of a smoker is significantly shorter than that of a nonsmoker. It is believed to be one of the earliest attempts to quantify the negative health consequences of tobacco use.2
