New study results show that female smokers are at a much greater risk for bleeding in the lining of the brain than nonsmokers. Women who smoked 21 to 30 cigarettes a day were 8.35 times more likely to have a subarachnoid hemorrhage than nonsmokers.
While the risk increased for men, it was not as great, men who smoked the same number of cigarettes a day were 2.76 times more likely to have a brain hemorrhage than nonsmokers.
