Scientists at British American Tobacco used lab-based cellular tests to examine the impact of cigarette smoke and Vype e-cigarette vapour on human lung cells. The most serious kind of DNA damage is double-strand break, which effectively means that both

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

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

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.

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).

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

People who smoke cigarettes may boost their risk of clogged heart arteries by weakening a gene that is otherwise protective of these important blood vessels, US researchers said Monday. The findings point to a genetic explanation for how smoking can lea

[UK] E-cigarettes ARE safer than tobacco, study confirms: Vaporizers harmed just 2 genes in human lungs - compared to 123 genes mutated by cigarette smoke
But a new set of experiments performed in the UK have shown lung tissue is barely affected at all by e-cigarettes - compared to the crippling affect cigarette smoke has one our organs. Lungs exposed to tobacco suffered changes in 123 genes - mutating c
