lung-cancerThe major cause of cancer deaths in men and women is lung cancer; this situation is relatively new and is mainly due to cigarette smoking. In 1876, a machine was invented to make rolled-up cigarettes and thus provided cheap tobacco products to almost everyone. At that time, lung cancer was relatively rare.

Radon gas, pollution, toxins, and other factors contribute to the remaining 10%.
