Men who continued to smoke, even intermittently, after learning they had cancer were 76% more likely to die from all causes than those who stopped at time of diagnosis, according to a 25-year study of 1,632 men in China. After cancer diagnosis, those who stopped smoking lived an average of 4.4 years compared with 2.1 years for those who didn't quit. The findings appear in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.
