AML

A recent study by the American Journal of Hematology reviewed over 7,000 cases of AML in adults and found a direct correlation to smoking cigarettes. “So, now we know that both AML and lung cancer are linked to smoking,” says Incledon. “We know that smoking has damaging effects on our health and continued research will likely show that other cancers can be linked to smoking.” Gene mutations, exposure to certain chemicals or chemotherapy from other cancer treatments, and various environmental factors are also seen as creating higher risk for developing AML.
