Smoking smothers your genes, a new finding indicates

A new study has found strong evidence that tobacco use can chemically modify and affect the activity of genes known to increase the risk of developing cancer. The finding may give researchers a new tool to assess cancer risk among people who smoke. DNA

Association of nicotine dependence susceptibility gene, CHRNA5, with Parkinson's disease age at onset: Gene and smoking status interaction

Our preliminary results suggest that the ND risk variant, rs588765, has a protective effect in PD, and is associated with later AAO, but only when the individual was previously exposed to nicotine. This may be explained by modulating the neuroprotective

Motivations for genetic testing for lung cancer risk among young smokers

In addition to learning about health risks, young people may be motivated to seek genetic testing for reasons, such as gaining knowledge about new genetic technologies more broadly.

Three new lung cancer genetic biomarkers identified

SNPs (single-nucleotide polymorphisms) are variations in our DNA that determine our susceptibility to developing some diseases. Using the largest genome-wide SNP-smoking interaction analysis reported for lung cancer, a research team has identified three n

Cigarette Smoking alters Epigenetics

smoke from cigarettes actually changes the epigenetic makeup of DNA, thereby paving the road to lung cancer. Unfortunately, smoking is responsible for death in about 50% of the people who don’t quit. Unfortunately, second hand smoke affects children and

‘Epigenetic’ Changes From Cigarette Smoke May be First Step in Lung Cancer Development

say they have preliminary evidence in laboratory-grown, human airway cells that a condensed form of cigarette smoke triggers so-called “epigenetic” changes in the cells consistent with the earliest steps toward lung cancer development.

Stop smoking: This is the hidden danger that YOU didn’t know

The University of North Carolina (UNC) have created a method for recording the damage at high resolution across the genome. They can now map all harm caused by the major chemical carcinogen - benzo[α]pyrene (BaP).

Largest genome-wide study of lung cancer susceptibility identifies new causes

Although tobacco smoking is the main risk factor, past studies have shown heritability of lung cancer estimated at 18%. Previous genomewide association studies have identified several lung cancer susceptibility loci but most of its heritability remains un
