Burning Incense Linked to Respiratory Cancers

Have you ever used a product and wondered if "they" are going to find some defect years after you start using it i.e., plastic or incense.
It seems our concerns are valid. New studies indicate that regularly inhaling the smoke from incense increases your risk of cancer of the respiratory tract.
The findings of this study have been published in the medical journal Cancer. The study conducted involved more than 61,000 ethnic Chinese living in Singapore. This particular was conducted over 12-years and various respiratory cancers were present in individuals who used incense regularly. This is the first study that has linked the practice of burning incense to an increased cancer risk over time.
