Smoking and Cervical Cancer
José Alberto Fonseca-Moutinho *

Intriguing studies analyzing wood-smoke effect on cervical carcinogenesis have shown that among HPV-positive women a dose-response relationship is observed for exposure to wood smoke and cervical cancer that persisted in multivariate analysis [33] and chronic exposure to wood smoke significantly increased the risk of CIN III suggesting that chronic inhalation of carcinogens derived from wood smoke could have an effect on the progression to cervical cancer similar to that observed for cigarette smoking [34]. Probably the smoking effect on cervical carcinogenesis is not tobacco-specific.
• The Surgeon General has determined that there is no safe level of exposure to ambient smoke!

• If you smell even a subtle odor of smoke, you are being exposed to poisonous and carcinogenic chemical compounds!

• Even a brief exposure to smoke raises blood pressure, (no matter what your state of health) and can cause blood clotting, stroke, or heart attack in vulnerable people. Even children experience elevated blood pressure when exposed to smoke!

• Since smoke drastically weakens the lungs' immune system, avoiding smoke is one of the best ways to prevent colds, flu, bronchitis, or risk of an even more serious respiratory illness, such as pneumonia or tuberculosis! Does your child have the flu? Chances are they have been exposed to ambient smoke!
