There are many reasons to stop smoking, but new research from South Korea adds one more. A recent study conducted there focused on people with and without aneurysms.  An aneurysm is a form of stroke in which a blood vessel explodes in the brain, causing significant brain damage and often death.   The researchers involved in this study found that smoking more than doubled the likelihood that its subjects would suffer a burst aneurysm.  Considering the high fatality rate of this condition and the severe deficits faced by survivors, this study provides yet another strong reason to avoid smoking.
