Past, present smoking ups breast cancer risk
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A new study found that smoking may slightly increase the risk of breast cancer.
Researchers used the records of the long-running Nurses' Health Study. Scientists say any history of smoking increased a woman's chance of breast cancer by 6 percent.
Exposure to secondhand smoke did not appear to increase a woman's risk of breast cancer.
The study is in Tuesday's issue of Archives of Internal Medicine.
