[Health] More Smoking Risks

Yes, we all know smoking is bad for you. Despite this information, there are thousands upon thousands of people in the world who choose to smoke. Allow us to give you yet another reason not to smoke - and this time it's for the ladies.

A recent study has claimed that smoking dramatically increases one's risk of developing cervical cancer when also infected with HPV - you can search [define HPV] to learn more, in case you don't know what this is. The study reports that smokers with the virus are six times as likely to develop cancer and 14 times as likely to develop cervical cancer within 9 years .

This is just another item to add to smoking's rap sheet, so to speak. There are a million and one ways that it kills people - and yet people still light up.

It just does not make sense.
