Study: Quit Smoking Now, Worry About Weight Gain Later
New research shows that even if you gain weight when you quit smoking, it's still healthier than lighting up.
People do gain an average of six to 13 pounds after they quit, but a new study shows, even with that extra weight, ex-smokers are only half as likely to have a heart attack or stroke as they were when they smoked.
Researchers say people should first concentrate on quitting and then deal with any possible weight gain later.
New research from the Journal of the National Cancer Institute shows some breast cancer patients may develop post-traumatic stress disorder.

Younger women, and African-American and Asian women were most likely to develop the disorder.
