New findings published in the journal Lancet Psychiatry reveal that smoking could increase the risk of developing certain mental illnesses.
Have you ever been told that someone might be dealing with hallucinations or delusions? Though it might seem rare, new findings published in JAMA Psychiatry tell us that these issues are a bit more common than once thought.
