In truth - this headline should read:
Radon linked to more lung cancer deaths than previously ADMITTED!"

Someday they they are going to find MANY things with a higher risk than they have ever admitted

and then they may have to admit - "maybe smoking doesn't have as heavy a risk as we thought"

Sorry Stupid - NOT NUMBER 1:

What causes an abdominal aortic aneurysm?
Physicians and researchers are not quite sure what actually causes an AAA to form in some people. The leading thought is that the aneurysm may be caused by inflammation in the aorta, which may cause its wall to weaken or break down. Some researchers believe that this inflammation can be associated with atherosclerosis (also called hardening of the arteries) or risk factors that contribute to atherosclerosis, such as high blood pressure (hypertension) and smoking. In atherosclerosis fatty deposits, called plaque, build up in an artery. Over time, this buildup causes the artery to narrow, stiffen and possibly weaken.

Besides atherosclerosis, other factors that can increase your risk of AAA include:

Being a man older than 60 years

Having an immediate relative, such as a mother or brother, who has had AAA

Having high blood pressure

Smoking

Your risk of developing AAA increases as you age.

AAA is more common in men than in women.

What causes an aortic aneurysm?
The wall of the aorta is normally very elastic. It can stretch and then shrink back as needed to adapt to blood flow. But some medical problems, such as high blood pressure and atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), weaken the artery walls. These problems, along with the wear and tear that naturally occurs with aging, can result in a weak aortic wall that bulges outward.

As far as smoking risk - you guys have made sure that EVERYTING is associated with smoking - so THAT really doesn't mean much anymore!
