Exposure to cigarette smoke can cause cancer: Big findings from study

New Delhi: People who live around smokers may be more likely to get cancer. This is revealed in a new study published in ‘The Lancet Journal’. The study said that secondhand smoke from being around smokers is the 10th biggest cause of lung cancer.

Researchers at the University of Washington estimate that tobacco smoke enters the lungs of everyone who lives around a smoker every day.

They conducted a survey to find out the proportion of people affected in this way. Studies have shown that smoking, alcohol and being overweight are major risk factors for cancer.


After that, unsafe sex, high blood sugar levels, air pollution, exposure to asbestos pollution, low intake of grains and milk and presence of other people who smoke are also factors. 37 lakh people died in 2019 due to these things.
