Vitamin C and another drug may combine to limit smoking’s assault on lungs

 ...an interesting turn away from the anti-harm reduction/quit or die rhetoric that we have grown accustomed to hearing from proponents of health:



Treatment with vitamin C and the nitric oxide synthase inhibitor
decreased the expression of nitric oxide synthases to levels comparable
to the control animals. This means that the joint treatment returned the
expression of these proteins to almost the same levels seen in tissues
that haven’t been exposed to cigarette smoke. In fact, treated animals
had a decrease in whole-lung nitric oxide generation from between 59 and
86 percent.
