Parental smoking linked to genetic changes found in childhood cancer

Smoking by either parent helps promote genetic deletions in children that are associated with the development and progression of the most common type of childhood cancer, according to research headed by UC San Francisco. While the strongest associations

Two thirds of cancers caused by random genetic mistakes: U.S. study

Though most cancers are due to bad luck, people should not ignore sound public health advice that can help people avoid preventable cancers, including maintaining a healthy weight and avoiding environmental risk factors such as smoking, the team said.

Most Cancers Caused by Random DNA Copying Errors

But not all cancers have the same causation profile, and lifestyle and environment can still have a big influence on cancer risk. For example, in lung cancer, the leading cancer killer, 65 percent of mutations that cause the disease are environmental in

The most common cause of cancer? Simple bad luck: Random mistakes in genetics are to blame, scientists say

"It is well-known that we must avoid environmental factors such as smoking".... Copying mistakes were linked to 77 per cent of pancreatic cancers but only 35 per cent of lung cancers. The latter was mostly triggered by smoking and other environmental fac

Epigenetics and allergy: from basic mechanisms to clinical applications

Smoking, either as prenatal and/or postnatal tobacco smoke exposure or in its active form, is another extrinsic factor known to increase the risk of allergic disorders, especially asthma [177–181], and its effects on the epigenetic status have been clear

Shared Gene Expression Alterations in Nasal and Bronchial Epithelium for Lung Cancer Detection

These results support that the airway epithelial field of lung cancer–associated injury in ever smokers extends to the nose and demonstrates the potential of using nasal gene expression as a noninvasive biomarker for lung cancer detection.

Gene activity in the nose may signal lung cancer

Genetic changes in the cells lining the inside of the nose might someday help doctors diagnose lung cancer, a recent study suggests. “The idea that you don't have to sample the disease tissue but can diagnose presence of disease using relatively accessi

Nicotine Vapor Has Fewer Genetic Effects Than Cigarette Smoke

New evidence shows that in at least one area, gene expression, those groups should abandon their 'quit or die' mentality... Anisha Banerjee and coauthors from British American Tobacco R&D Centre (Southampton, U.K.) used a commercially available 3D airway
