Secondhand smoke linked to greater cancer risk in men

Cancer trial results in men may be affected by exposure to secondhand, or “outside ammunition,” found in cigarette smoke, a study suggests.
And while prevention is the primary way to reduce the number of prostate cancer deaths, more than half of men still don’t get screened for this devastating cancer, according to research funded by the National Institutes of Health.
More research is needed, on the nature of the relationship between secondhand smoke and cancer, and how best to address the issue in men’s health, the authors caution.
