Cigarette Smoking and Epigenetics

Cigarette smoking leads to some of the most preventable causes of death and illness in the world. Cigarette use is associated with a range of deleterious genetic changes.

The findings shed new light on the biological processes whereby smoking increases the risk of a variety of diseases and adverse health outcomes.

Besides damaging lungs, cigarettes can also wreak havoc on genes that control immune responses, sperm quality, and the risk of developing certain diseases.
