NHL Risk Factors Studied

A recent Italian study confirms what we knew about smoking - heavy smoking doubles the risk of non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. The same study also determined that persons who are infected with the hepatitus C virus and who are heavy smokers had a 4 fold risk of developing NHL.

The study was published in the International Journal of Cancer, July 1, 2005 and a report appears in Reuters Health.
