Cancer caused by smoking

Cigarette smoking accounts for at least 30% of all cancer deaths. It is linked with an increased risk of the following cancers:

* Lung
* Larynx (voice box)
* Oral cavity (mouth, tongue, and lips)
* Pharynx (throat)
* Esophagus (tube connecting the throat to the stomach)
* Stomach
* Pancreas
* Cervix
* Kidney
* Bladder
* Acute myeloid leukemia

Smoking is responsible for almost 9 out of 10 lung cancer deaths. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in both men and women, and is one of the hardest cancers to treat. Lung cancer is a disease that can often be prevented. Some religious groups that promote non-smoking as part of their religion, such as Mormons and Seventh-day Adventists, have much lower rates of lung cancer and other smoking-related cancers.
