Did you know that smoking is responsible for an estimated 30% of all cancer deaths in Canada? It also causes about 85% of lung cancer cases. The facts are clear. The more you smoke and the longer you smoke, the more you increase your risk of developing lung and other cancers. In fact, any smoking at all may cause lung damage. But that doesn’t mean it’s too late to quit! No matter how old you are or how long you’ve been smoking, you can reduce your risk of cancer by quitting.
Infographics, videos, games and visual aids help to educate on smoking as a risk factor for cancer on the Canadian Cancer Society website.
