Another Smoke?

You will have to forgive me while I leave behind the world of positive thoughts and put on my clinical cap for a moment. Often I try to bring you the latest studies involving hypnosis, but today I bring you news that does not. Yet it is important and can benefit us.

Several studies have found that there is a link between smokers and Type 2 Diabetes. Smoking apparently increases the risk for the disease. And I do not know about you, but diabetes is a great fear for several of my weight loss clients, so I suspect it may help motivate a few smokers to give up that habit as well.

When the University of Lausanne compared 25 such studies, there was a 44% increase of the diabetes risk for smokers, compared to non-smokers. According to the Journal of American Medical Association, the more cigarettes smoked, the higher the risk. The numbers are pretty scary.
