Cigarette smoking and colorectal cancer mortality in the cancer prevention study II.

​Cigarette smokers may have a high tendency to suffer from colorectal cancer-related deaths.

This study analyzed the correlation between cigarette smoking and colorectal cancer mortality risk. A group of scientists at the American Cancer Society tracked the smoking habits and mortality records of more than 1 million men and women recruited from the Cancer Prevention Study II.

The team of investigators discovered than cigarette smokers had higher probability of dying from colorectal cancer than non-smokers. On the other hand, early cessation of smoking was associated with a significant decrease in colorectal cancer mortality risk in this study. The results of this study agree with the view that a significant proportion of deaths from colorectal cancer is due to cigarette smoking.
