Smoking is deadlier than we thought. So far it was linked to lung cancer alone. But a new study by US researchers shows that smoking raises a person’s risks of esophageal and stomach cancers. The study that followed more than 120,000 Dutch adults for 16 years, researchers found that smoking increased the risk of the two main forms of stomach cancer and esophageal cancer — by anywhere from 60 per cent to 263 per cent versus non-smokers.
