Second Hand Smoke Increases Risk of Cervical Cancer

Women have a new reason to stay away from second-hand smoke...it could increase their risk of cervical cancer.

A new study at Johns Hopkins School of Public Health reviewed the cervical cancer rates of over 50,000 women. It found non-smoking women who lived with a smoker had a 40% higher risk of developing cervical cancer compared to women living in a smoke-free household.

Doctors say this makes second hand smoke a women's issue now and another good reason for people to quit.
