Study: Women Smokers Catch Men in Cancer Risk
A report from the American Cancer Society has found that women, who have long lagged behind men in cancer risk, have caught up to their male counterparts when it comes to smoking-related lung cancer.
FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso has details:
The American Cancer Society calls it a massive failure in prevention: Their latest research that shows American women who smoke today have a much greater risk of dying from lung cancer than they did decades ago.
(Dr. Lichtenfeld) “Women, in a sense, were relatively late to the game.”
Dr. Len Lichtenfeld says women are starting younger and smoking more, causing them to catch up with men in their risks. Researchers also found that even though cigarettes have changed, they’re just as dangerous for women and men.
(Dr. Lichtenfeld) “If you’re a smoker, stop. And if you stop before age 40, you can probably avoid most of the damage that you’re going to cause if you keep on smoking.”
