Why some smokers get cancer and others don't: Scientists discover genes that 'lower the risk of early death'
Smokers who live for a long time may have specific genes promoting a lengthy lifespan, their study found. And these 'longevity' genes were also linked with an 11 per cent lower incidence of cancer. Scientists say the genes help the body's cells maintain
