Smoking a Cigar increases risk of dying by heart diseases and lung cancer

Researchers have found that smoking increased the risk of death from coronary heart disease and lung cancer. Women smokers are highly vulnerable to heart disease and lung cancer compared to men smokers and non-smokers. //

The study, which was published in the British Medical Journal, has found that smoking 1 to 4 cigars a day triples the chances of developing heart diseases and lung cancers compared to non-smokers, with women more likely to be affected by the habit. Light smokers group are the one who smoke occasionally and study has found that these smokers have a chances of developing 1.5 times complications, which are not serious health problems, has experienced by heavy smokers. The study also quashes the notion that 'light' smokers escape the serious health problems faced by heavier smokers. It was found that light smokers during the course of life increased their daily consumption of cigarettes up to 9 cigars a day and many had also given up their habit of smoking.

The research study was conducted by reviewing statistics and data from 43,000 men and women aged between 35 and 49 from mid 1970s up to 2002 whose health and death rates were taken into consideration.

People who smoked between 1 to 5 cigarettes a day were almost three times vulnerable to development of heart diseases and lung cancers, whereas women smokers were almost 5 times more likely to die of these complications compared to non-smokers. Light smokers had a risk of developing complications of about 1.5 times more than non-smokers. This indicated that the risk of death from coronary artery disease would have been 7 percent higher, and the risk of lung cancer would have been 47 percent higher in women.
