Smoking is the leading cause of early death in Yorkshire. In the United Kingdom, 1.5m vapers have stopped smoking completely, and a further 770,000 people have given up both smoking and vaping.

"The Trust's Smoking Cessation Team has developed effective evidence-based services for people who wish to stop smoking and we would encourage anyone who wishes to take the first steps towards a healthier, Smokefree life for themselves and their families, to avail of the free service".

Deafness joins a list of adverse health effects that are caused by smoking.

Data was gathered from 50,000 workers between the ages of 20 to 64 who had not suffered from hearing loss.

Due to the relative safety of e-cigarettes and their success in helping people quit, Yorkshire Cancer Research is calling for more support to be given to those who wish to vape.

More people in Yorkshire get lung cancer than any other cancer type.

The longer that a person smokes, the higher they are at risk for developing for high frequency and low-frequency hearing loss. "The risk of hearing loss associated with smoking seems to decrease in the five years after stopping smoking", said the authors. "For example, if smokers who used e-cigarettes to help quit were twice as likely to actually quit compared to smokers who used nicotine-replacement therapy, then the benefits of e-cigarette use would approximately balance the harms of e-cigarette use".

The ultranationalist Slovak National Party that is the third coalition member said it was willing to negotiate an early vote. On Monday, Fico's ally, Interior Minister Robert Kalinak , said he would resign, bowing to the demands of Most-Hid.

She added: "I see the damage smoking does and I also see the health benefits of stopping smoking".

Scientists today discovered adults who smoke are 60% more likely too suffer hearing loss.

During follow-up, 3,532 individuals developed high-frequency hearing loss and 1,575 developed low-frequency hearing loss. However-and perhaps more alarming-the model estimated that, at the same time, an additional 168,000 adolescents and young adults who had never smoked cigarettes began smoking and eventually became daily cigarette smokers after first using e-cigarettes.

Most of the participants in the study were in their 40s, and 21,000 of them had never smoked.

"While we continue to encourage innovation of potentially less harmful forms of nicotine delivery for now addicted adult smokers, we can all agree no child should be using any nicotine-containing product", he said. Those who were current smokers were more likely to be overweight or obese and have chronic health problems such as diabetes and be in jobs with high levels of noise.

Some of the limitations of the study include the problems with counting on participants to accurately report their own smoking habits.
