Cigarette Smoke and Cancer

Question:

How many people die each year from a cancer caused by cigarette smoking?

Answer:

For the most up to date information about cancer causes, risks and prevention, I suggest you check out the website for the American Cancer Society or the website for the National Cancer Institute (one of the National Institutes of Health).  You will find all the information you need as well as additional links to scientific literature and patient information.
