Morning smokers beware: Early cigarette has greater cancer risk

People who smoke soon after getting up in the morning are more likely to develop cancer than those who light up later in the day, say US researchers. Scientists at the Penn State College of Medicine looked at 4,776 smokers with lung cancer and 2,835 smokers without cancer, and found that patients who smoked in the first 30 minutes after waking up were 79 percent more likely to have developed cancer when compared to those who waited for at least an hour.
