Smoking Is Worse For Women

I apologize if I'm insulting any of my readers, but I'm not a fan of smoking. Never have been, never will be. Of course, my distaste comes with obvious health concerns, but new research is showing that women, especially, should stay away from the habit.

Recent cancer research conducted by the University of California in San Francisco shows that women who consistently smoke are actually even more likely than men who smoke to die of lung cancer.

Female smokers are also nearly 18 times more likely to die of lung cancer than women who don't smoke cigarettes. I know what most of you are thinking. These statistics apply to women with serious smoking dependencies.

Smoking a cigarette when you're drunk and out with your friends, socially, is not that big of a deal. Well, apparently not. The University of Montana has contributed to this research by finding that sporadic smoking can actually lead to a full-on smoking addiction when you least expect it.
