Seo Young Kim from CHA University in Seongnam (South Korea) together with colleagues investigated the relationship between smoking, alcohol consumption, obesity and Meniere’s disease. All participants in the study were over the age of 40, and data on them were obtained from the Korea National Health Insurance Service. In total, the scientists compared 15,208 patients with Meniere’s disease to 499,658 healthy people.

The experts eventually concluded that alcohol consumption and smoking in general were not associated with Meniere’s disease in the adult population. However, smoking in men was positively associated with a higher risk of developing the disease. Additionally, people were generally less likely to develop Meniere’s disease when they were underweight.
