Women who smoked close to 20 cigarettes a day face a two-fold risk of Hodgkin's lymphoma and some bone marrow cancers.

'These results highlight yet again how important smoking is as a cause of cancer. Smoking raises the risk of many types of cancer, not just lung cancer, and also the risk of heart attack and stroke, which many people may not be aware of,' researchers said.
