Just one cigarette a day can lead to early death: Study

A new study has found that those who smoke one cigarette a day or less still have greater odds of dying earlier than non-smokers.

The findings of the study released in JAMA Internal Medicine journal Monday said that the researchers from the National Cancer Institute conducted the study and analyzed the effects of low-intensity smoking compared to mortality rates for people who don't smoke.

The researchers reviewed over 290,000 people and some of whom had never smoked cigarettes. The study showed that those who had only smoked just one cigarette a day or less were still exposed to the risk of a high mortality rate when compared to those who did not smoke at all.

The researchers also analyzed the chances of developing lung cancer among people who smoked at low rates, or no more than one cigarette per day. The study showed that these people were nine times more likely to die from lung cancer compared to those who never smoked. According to researchers, people who smoked between one and 10 cigarettes a day were 12 times more likely to die from lung cancer.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, I more than 480,000 people die in the US only from effects related to cigarette smoking annually. The American Lung Association claimed in a report that over 130,000 Americans on average die from lung cancer caused by cigarette smoking a year.
