    It's just another thing that causes cancer. I'm not surprised in a way because burning something can make it carcinogenic. I'm not 100% sure how it works but lots of things that have been burned or cook do it. Look at chips, they have acrylamide in them. It's something to do with the high temperatures causing chemical changes to certain safe compounds to make them into dangerous / carcinogenic compounds. I bet you'd find a heap load of carcinogens if you breathe any kind of smoke fumes in.

    Interesting... http://www.burningissues.org/smoke.htm
    The U.S. EPA estimates the cancer risk from wood smoke is twelve times greater than that from equal amounts of tobacco smoke.

    I read about a cure for cancer last night but supposedly because it's not patented nobody is really interested. Conspiracy theory....

    So, breathing in smoke increases the risk of cancer. The phrase "no shit Sherlock" springs to mind...

    Stating the obvious, religous groups using it for meditation doesn't mean it isn't harmful

    there are far many ways to get cancer than burning incense sticks.Its just a media hype.the benefits of incense is far more than its side-effects.
