Last year, researchers from the American Cancer Society reported results showing a 24% higher rate of breast cancer among women who smoked.
The risk was much greater among those who started smoking young, either before they started menstruating or before having their first child.
The new study, published in the British Journal of Cancer, covered a period of around 10 years. During this time, 7,500 of the women were diagnosed with breast cancer.
