Mouth health: Tobacco use, alcohol, oral cancer
from The Huffington Post
More than 35,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year. Most of them will be tobacco users of some kind: smokers, former smokers and smokeless tobacco users. There is no nice way to paint the picture, so I'll just start swinging away with my brush -- of people 50 years of age or older and diagnosed with oral cancer, more than 75 percent of them are/were tobacco users. And some studies I've seen that include throat and larynx cancers put the number closer to 90 percent.
