We all know smoking is bad for you and of course raises your risk of cancer.  A surprising study now reveals that people who smoke within thirty minutes of waking double their risk of cancers.  Why?

They showed that patients who smoked in the first 30 minutes after waking up were 79% more likely to have developed cancer than those who waited at least an hour.
