In case you missed it, UK-funded researchers of Cancer from the Wellcome Sanger Institute and UCL have discovered that compared to current smokers, individuals who have stopped smoking had more genetically healthy lung cells, which have a much lower risk of developing into cancer.

This shift in proportion of healthy to damaged cells could help protect against cancer.
