Smoking lowers skin cancer risk

Thanks to Audrey Silk for posting this on Facebook via NYC CLASH-

Now this is interesting:

Men who had ever smoked had a significantly lower risk of melanoma (relative risk 0.72) compared to men who had never smoked, and current smokers had an even lower risk (0.52), according to the study involving 145,709 people pooled from two large national cohorts.

Cohort studies are the most reliable epidemiological studies, are they not?
