Cigarette Smoking, COHb Level and Physical Fitness
Many authors are of the opinion that tobacco smoking represents a very significant factor in the appearance of coronary diseases, lung cancer and some other disorders. In his recent comprehensive study, Hammond  has proved that the death rate due to cardiovascular insults is 5–10 times greater among smokers than among non-smokers. Doll and Hill  and Goldsmith and Ladaw  have also indicated the important role of tobacco smoking in the incidence and mortality of coronary disease.
