Death rates remain high among cancers caused by cigarette smoking
Despite significantly decreasing rates of smoking over the past 50 years, cigarette smoking continues to be the cause of death for various types of cancer, according to recently published data in JAMA Internal Medicine. "From 2000 to 2010, smoking prevalence decreased from 23.2 to 18.1 percent. In contrast to this favorable trend, recently published data revealed that the risk of cancer death among smokers can increase over time," Rebecca L. Siegel, MPH, of the American Cancer Society, and colleagues wrote.
