Mexico, Although women do not smoke does not mean free from the effects of cigarette smoke. Women are often exposed to smoke aka passive smokers 3 times more likely to suffer from breast cancer.

Has ample evidence to show that secondhand smoke is also a major health risk from exposure to cigarette smoke. Secondhand smoke is known 2 times more likely to die from heart disease and lung cancer.

But now, a new study also shows that women are passive smokers have a 3 times greater risk of suffering from breast cancer because of frequent exposure to cigarette smoke.

"Everyone should avoid cigarette smoke," said Lizbeth Lopez-Carrillo, a professor of epidemiology at the National Institute for Public Health, Mexico, as reported from Indiavision, Tuesday (05/10/2010).

According to Lopez-Carrillo, cigarette tobacco products generate two streams of smoke, the smoke that entered and inhaled by smokers themselves as well as securities issued smoke a cigarette burning. Smoke is that contaminate the surrounding environment, including endanger the health of the people who do not smoke as women and children.

In this study, Lopez-Carrillo and colleagues studied 504 women diagnosed with breast cancer and 504 healthy women other with the same age.

The researchers compared these two groups of participants. The result, compared with women who never smoked and do not or rarely exposed to smoke (passive smokers), women who are often exposed to smoke have an increased risk of breast cancer is 3 times higher.

Lopez-Carrillo explains, this is usually experienced by women who have family members such as husbands, fathers, children or other family members, who become active smokers. Another possibility is that women are working in an environment full of active smokers and cigarette smoke.

"Both active and passive smoking are both risk factors that can increase breast cancer risk. So to prevent any risks of disease, we not only have to reduce the active smokers, but also passive smokers," said Lopez-Carrillo further.
