Quitting smoking, genetic predisposition linked

Filed under:

Many of us have heard that a genetic predisposition may make us more susceptible to certain diseases and even lifestyle choices in some form. How about smoking?

New research shows that smokers without certain DNA may face an even tougher battle kicking the habit. So, genetic predisposition comes to the forefront of kicking the smoking habit for good. Perhaps this demonstrates why some folks are successful at quitting smoking while others fails repeatedly?

the new research stated that people who were able to quit smoking had variants in 221 genes that weren't found in smokers who weren't able to kick the habit. Now, if those genes can be proven to be linked to the heightened possibility to eradicating smoking, that's great. Where is the solution for those without the disposition?
