The study also evaluated the concentration of vitamin D. Results showed that: A rise in the number of white blood cells and red blood cells, as well as a high concentration of hemoglobin and platelet count in smokers.An increase in the volume of red blood cells, mean hemoglobin concentration, and Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration in smokers’ blood.
