Smoking and risk for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis: analysis of the EPIC cohort.

Cigarette smoking may heighten an individual's risk of dying from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

​This study examined the link between cigarette smoking and the probability of dying from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Researchers monitored the smoking habits and mortality records of more than half a million men and women.

Researchers observed that smoking doubled the risk of dying from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Evidence from this study indicate that cigarette smokers may have a high tendency to suffer from deaths due to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.
