Association between exclusive pipe smoking and mortality from cancer and other diseases.

Pipe smokers may be much more liable to die from stroke, coronary heart disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cancers of the oropharynx, esophagus, larynx, lungs, colon, rectum, and pancreas.

​This study examined the correlation between pipe smoking and the risk of dying from cancer and other diseases. Researchers tracked the smoking habits and mortality records of more than 135,000 men for 10 years. 

Researchers noted that compared to never smokers, current pipe smokers had higher tendency to suffer from deaths due to stroke, coronary heart disease (CHD), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and cancers of the oropharynx, esophagus, larynx, lung, colon, rectum, and pancreas. This study adds to the body of evidence supporting the view that pipe smoking may put an individual at high risk of dying from cancer, stroke, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and coronary heart disease.
