•  The correlation between smoking and incidence of cancers

A significant body of scientific literature exists which provides a strong link between smoking and the incidence of cancers

  • Cigarette smoke contains over 4,000 chemical compounds, over 60 of which are known to be carcinogenic

There appears to be a strong positive correlation between the frequency of smoking and the development of cancer

  • The risk of lung cancer is strongly correlated with smoking, with ~90% of lung cancers attributable to tobacco use
  • Smoking also increases the risk of over a dozen other cancers, including mouth, stomach, liver, panceas and bowel
