DNA Isn't Destiny: Healthy Living Can Overcome Genes Linked to Heart Disease

New research shows that people can minimize an inherited risk for heart attack by living right -- exercising, eating healthy, staying slim and quitting smoking. Even with a little effort in these areas, people can cut their high genetic risk of heart di

Genetic Heart Disease Risk Eased by Healthy Habits, Study Finds

A new analysis of data from more than 55,000 people provides an answer. It finds that by living right — by not smoking... Meanwhile, the new study shows a new way to think about genes and lifestyle, researchers say....“If you are dealt a bad hand, there

E-cig vapor does not induce genetic mutations associated with cigarette smoke exposure

Scientists at British American Tobacco used a method called the Ames test to compare the mutagenic potential of cigarette smoke with that of vapour from Vype ePen, a commercially available e-cigarette. DNA mutations result in genetic instability, which m

[UK] DNA study lays bare devastating damage caused by smoking

The devastating impact of cigarette smoke on the body’s DNA has been laid bare by the first comprehensive study into the damage tobacco inflicts on human cells. People who smoke a pack of cigarettes each day for a year develop on average 150 extra mutat

Smoking Wreaks Genetic Havoc on Lungs, Study Warns

"Our analysis demonstrates that tobacco smoking causes mutations that lead to cancer by multiple distinct mechanisms," he said in a Los Alamos news release. "Tobacco smoking damages DNA in organs directly exposed to smoke as well as speeds up a mutationa

Smoking a Pack a Day for a Year Leaves 150 Mutations in Every Lung Cell

examined the DNA of more than 3,000 tumors from the bodies of smokers and nonsmokers. The results, published this week in the journal Science, were sobering: Researchers found deep molecular “signatures” etched in tumor cells, even in organs that were nev

Smoking a pack a day causes 150 mutations in every lung cell, research shows

researchers said the findings show a direct link between the number of cigarettes smoked in a lifetime and the number of mutations in the DNA of cancerous tumors. The highest mutation rates were seen in lung cancers, but tumors in other parts of the body

Smoking a Pack a Day for a Year Causes 150 Mutations in Lung Cells

"This study of smoking tells us that looking in the DNA of cancers can provide provocative new clues to how cancers develop and thus, potentially, how they can be prevented." Scientists have measured the catastrophic genetic damage caused by smoking in

Mutational signatures associated with tobacco smoking in human cancer [FREE FULL TEXT]

Consistent with the proposition that an increased mutation load caused by tobacco smoke contributes to increased cancer risk, the total mutation burden is elevated in smokers versus nonsmokers with lung adenocarcinoma, larynx, liver, and kidney cancers. H
