Are you kidding me?

I just read this abstract from a medical study of the linkage between cigarette smoking and Ulcerative Colitis and Crohn's Disease.  It looks like they are saying that people who have quit smoking are at higher risk for recurrence of the disease (in the case of Ulcerative Colitis) and even that smoking reduces the chance of needing surgery.  Weird.
