I hadn't heard that before but I had heard somewhere else that smoking also reduces your chances of getting alzheimers. Now I don't know how true that is but when I mentioned it to a few people when I first heard it, the only response I got from non-smokers was "If you live to be old enough to get alzheimers in the first place eh?" Hmmm sour grapes methinks! x
