Smoking and other disorders
This chapter presents an overview of the effects of smoking on other disorders, using published reviews and the results of published meta-analyses where available. Smoking is a risk factor for many chronic and non-fatal disorders other than cancer, respiratory, and cardiovascular diseases. It is associated with significant morbidity, which significantly impairs quality of life. Disorders associated with smoking include peptic ulcer, Crohn's disease, psoriasis, hip fracture, and type 2 diabetes.
