Half of All Deaths from 12 Common Cancers Tied to Smoking

Nearly half of all deaths from the twelve common cancers can be linked to cigarette use reports Reuters. Of over 340,000 individuals above the age of 35 who died of cancer, approximately 160,000 could be directly correlated to smoking. Lung, bronchus, and tracheal cancers accounted for the majority of fatal cancers at 80%. These results are concerning to health officials because while smoking prevalence may be declining, alternative product use is on the rise.
