Smoking and Lung Cancer

  • Lung Cancer is the most common cancer in the world.
  • In the UK, it’s estimated that 85% of lung cancer cases are caused by smoking.
  • 35,895 people died from lung cancer in the UK in 2014.
  • Over 45,000 people are diagnosed with lung cancer a year.
  • 120 people are diagnosed with lung cancer every day.
  • Current smokers are 15x more likely to die from lung cancer than life-long non-smokers.
  • If you start smoking before the age of 15, you might be twice as likely to develop lung cancer.
Remember that smoking is really really addictive and we firmly believe that no one deserves to die from cancer – any type of cancer (#nostigma)
