An analysis of data from more than 34,000 women in Sweden found that smoking one to seven cigarettes per day was associated with a more than twofold greater risk of developing rheumatoid arthritis. The risk remained significantly higher even among women who had stopped smoking for 15 years compared with those who had never smoked. The findings appeared online in the journal Arthritis Research & Therapy.
