Cigarette smoke causes breaks in DNA and defects to a cell's chromosomes, Pitt study finds
PITTSBURGH, Sept. 30 The amount of smoke in just
one or two puffs of a cigarette can cause breaks in DNA and defects to a cell's chromosomes, leading to irreversible changes in genetic information being passed to a newly divided cell, according to University of Pittsburgh researchers. Their finding...

three weeks before, the oxygen levels were recorded as being extremely low. The dead zone has been studied and tracked since it was discovered 20 years ago, DiMarco says. "We need to do some further research to determine the specific mechanisms under...
