One-Third Cancer Deaths Linked To Cigarettes

By wochit 26 October 2016

A new study revealed that almost one third of cancer deaths among Americans over 35 are due to smoking cigarettes. The rate is a lot higher in the South, perhaps due to their lax smoking laws. Patricia Folan of the Center for Tobacco Control at Northwell Health said, “States with underfunded tobacco-control programs have the highest prevalence of smoking, as well as the highest proportion of cancer deaths attributable to cigarette smoking.” The study found that cancer deaths affected men more than women. Dr. Len Horovitz said, “Smoking continues to be the biggest threat to health in this country -- it's time to help people quit.”
