As of 2002 the leading cause of death in America was heart disease (for men and women). For those under 34 it was accidents. The website below has more info.

Your question is a little too general. Different age groups have different leading causes of death. So cancer and heart disease will be true for one age group but not another.

Here is one answer: (http://www.ballew.org/deathsum.html)

Heart Disease: 696,947 - CDC, 2002
Cancer (Malignant neoplasms): 557,271 - CDC, 2002
Smoking: 400,000 - USA Today, March 13, 2002
Sudden Cardiac Arrest: 250,000 - NBC News, March 19, 2002
Doctors: 250,000 deaths per year from iatrogenic causes (12,000 -- unnecessary surgery; 7,000 -- medication errors in hospitals; 20,000 -- other errors in hospitals; 80,000 -- infections in hospitals; 106,000 -- non-error, negative effects of drugs.)(Journal American Medical Association July 26, 2000;284(4):483-5)

Motor Vehicle Accidents 44.8 per 100,000 - CDC, 1994
All Other Accidents 16.9 per 100,000 - CDC, 1994

Infections caught in Hospitals: 90,000 - NPR, March 27, 2002

The number #1 on this list was abortion which is a whole different debate. Depends on your own opinion
