It is widely known that tobacco smoke causes lung cancer. New research shows that tobacco smoke, including passive smoking, leads to cancer not only in the lungs but also in other organs.
The scientists analyzed the data of the National Center for Health Statistics and concluded that smoking provokes the development of cancer. The effect of tobacco smoke, including passive smoking, was not the focus of research, researchers were studying such oncological factors as diet and pollution. But as it turned out, smoking is one of the main factors causing cancer.
The fact that lung and other organ cancers are closely related should make smokers and non-smokers think about the dangers of tobacco smoke. It is also necessary to introduce disease prevention reforms and promote healthy lifestyles. The study is published on the BMC Cancer website.
