Male smokers also have the potential to get lung cancer as much as 25 times… while female smokers are 25.7 times.

Smoking can also trigger cancers such as bladder, blood, cervix, throat, liver, pancreas, stomach, kidneys, and ureters.

The World Health Organization (WHO) also notes that smoking causes more than 8 million deaths every year. 7 million of them are active smokers, while 1.2 million others are passive smokers.

“Undoubtedly, quit smoking. If you quit smoking, you dramatically lower your risk,” says Kurtis A. Campbell, MD, a board-certified surgical oncologist at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore.
