Smoking and Breast Cancer

Thursday, January 27, 2011 by Susan Lark

Interesting news this week on the breast cancer front: Researchers have found that smoking does, in fact, raise the risk of breast cancer, but only in premenopausal women. What is disturbing is that they also found that smoking was linked to a slight reduction in the risk of breast cancer in women who have hit menopause.

Regardless of what this study has found, if you're a smoker, I urge you to stop now. Decades of research has linked smoking with countless diseases and medical problems, so this slight glimmer of "good news" for postmenopausal smokers does not negate the fact that smoking is an extremely dangerous habit.
