Review Ties Cigarette Smoking To Increased Risk For Developing Psychosis

Reuters (7/9, Kelland) reports that a review published online July 9 in The Lancet Psychiatry suggests that cigarette smoking may increase the risk for developing psychosis. Investigators came to this conclusion after analyzing data from studies including some 15,000 users of tobacco and 273,000 non-smokers. Also covering the story are BBC News (7/10, Gallagher) and The Guardian (UK) (7/10, Boseley).
