Study Puts Cigarette-Related Deaths At Higher Rate Than Before.

The Washington Post (2/26) reports in its “Wonkblog” that two-thirds of smokers “will die early from” cigarette-related diseases, “unless they choose to kick the habit,” citing new research from Australia published in BMC medicine. The study of more than 200,000 people, unveiled this week, “found about 67 percent of smokers perished from smoking-related illness.” The rate, according to the Post, “is higher than doctors previously estimated.”
