Tele Management: Chinese Americans May be Genetically Less Likely to Get Lung Cancer

CATEGORIES

smokingA new study looked at why Chinese Americans are less likely to have lung cancer, even if they are heavy smokers, reports Tele Management.

Researchers wondered whether something in the genetic make up of Chinese Americans could be causing this.

A study by the University of California looked at a diverse group of volunteers–37 Chinese Americans, 40 Latinos and the rest white.  Scientists found that Chinese Americans actually took in less nicotine than the other two groups and at a slower rate.

The slower breakdown is significant because it means Chinese Americans can smoke less cigarettes to get the same satisfaction.

You can find out how these findings could lead to more effective ways of getting people to quit smoking in Tele Management.
