Smoking Doubles Your Risk Of Colorectal Polyps

Here’s another reason to quit the cigarette habit: Smokers have a two-fold increased risk of polyps in their digestive tract. The presence of those polyps demonstrates an increased chance of cancer.

“While the harmful health effects of tobacco smoking are well known, smoking has not been considered so far in the stratification of patients for colorectal cancer screening. Our findings could support lowering the recommended age for smokers to receive colorectal cancer screening,” says Albert B. Lowenfels, MD, from New York Medical College, Valhalla, New York, senior author of a study on the problem.
