Female smokers triple their risk of early death

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

Women who smoke more than triple their risk of dying early.

Kicking the habit can virtually eliminate this increased risk of premature death, according to a new study of over a million women.

Researchers found that women who smoked cigarettes throughout their adult years had three times a greater risk of dying compared with nonsmokers and women who quit well before middle age.

Even light smokers had two times the mortality rate of nonsmokers.
