 Take It Seriously and Give Up Smoking

Smoking is bad for health and the list of its adverse effects on health just seems to be going up.

A recent research has pointed out how the risk of cancers of the bone marrow and immune system goes up with smoking.

The study which evaluated the risks showed that the chances of developing cancer were almost eight in every 1,000 smokers.

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.
