Breast cancer risk from passive smoking2nd March 2011
Research published in the British Medical Journal has suggested that exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke as a child or adult appears to increase a woman’s risk of breast cancer.
US researchers carried out a study of nearly 80,000 women aged between 50 and 79 and found that the breast cancer risk was a third higher among those women who had clocked up decades of passive smoking, although they do accept that further studies are still needed to confirm the findings.
