Effects of Neanderthal DNA on Modern Humans

determining how the effects seen in present-day people might once have affected Neanderthals themselves “is one of our crucial challenges.” For example, he says, “of course, Neanderthals were not smoking.”

[Australia] 'Bring us your worst smokers' – helping diehard smokers quit

"If someone needs a cigarette within half an hour of waking up each morning, it's a sign they may have this enzyme," says Renee Bittoun, who established one of the world's first quit smoking clinics at Sydney's St Vincent's Hospital almost 40 years ago.

‘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.

Chronic Cigarette Smoke-Induced Epigenomic Changes Precede Sensitization of Bronchial Epithelial Cells to Single-Step Transformation by KRAS Mutations

We define how chronic cigarette smoke-induced time-dependent epigenetic alterations can sensitize human bronchial epithelial cells for transformation by a single oncogene. The smoke-induced chromatin changes include initial repressive polycomb marking of

'Epigenetic' changes from cigarette smoke may be first step in lung cancer development

"Our study suggests that epigenetic changes to cells treated with cigarette smoke sensitize airway cells to genetic mutations known to cause lung cancers," says Stephen Baylin, M.D., the Virginia and D.K. Ludwig Professor for Cancer Research and professo

Alzheimer’s and smoking genes suggest we’re still evolving

In the 20th century, people in the UK evolved to be less likely to smoke heavily, but the effect was tiny. So claims a study of 200,000 genomes. A population can be described as evolving when the frequency of gene variants changes over time. Because most
