it does not cause cancer but is the main contributer and following it is ionizing radiation and viral infection.
In the United States, smoking is estimated to account for 87% of lung cancer cases (90% in men and 85% in women). Among male smokers, the lifetime risk of developing lung cancer is 17.2%; among female smokers, the risk is 11.6%. This risk is significantly lower in nonsmokers: 1.3% in men and 1.4% in women

Using of tobacco, smoking and pan etc causing so many deceases:
cancer,tb,lung cancer & etc
This is world known truth: and in all country they have banned these items:

yes it cause lung cancer!

Many years ago, it was already known that there are approx 8000 different chemicals in the smoke. No wonder at all that every part of the body suffers from it. Yes: EVERY part of the body.
1: it causes different types of cancer, not just lung cancer. It also causes cancer for non smokers who just happen or need to be around where someone smoked/smokes. It's been proven that cig.smoke is 5 times more harmful for non smokers than for smokers. I don't know how they calculated that - probably they took in account that smokers already are sick because of the smoking. And you won't get much sicker when once sick. Not so for non smokers, who would be even healtier if no smokers would be around.
2: once you've got cancer (be it caused by the smoking or something else): the smoke will considerably break down our natural resistance against all kind of diseases, including cancer. Because, again, already many many years ago, it's been made public that there are 8000 different chemicals in cig. smoke. Many of those have a very bad effect on the health and the natural resistance to diseases.
No wonder that on average a smoker lives approx. 7 years less than a non smoker. In itself that's not a big problem - but also, during their lives, an average smoker, although he/she lives much shorter, still needs much more healthcare than the average non smoker. Some people think smoking is good for the taxes (income to the government). Which is bull - because the extra healthcare needed, is more expensive than what the extra taxes brings in.

Anyway, smoking is a cancerous addictive habit which we should weed out with all kind of means. Especially because only a tiny percentage really cares about others around them - they really don't care **** if they have to breath in their toxic gases. And all smokers that i ever came accross, just throw away the cigarette stumps in the nature (causing fires and environmental damage including toxics going into the food chain). So, i didn't meet any smoker yet who isn't unneccesarily pollutioning the same environment which non smokers have to live in to. It's sooo egocentric to throw those stumps in the environment.

Don't forget: cigarette manfacturers add all kind of things to let it be more addictive and to give it a calming effect. But the calming effect is only short lived. It's designed that way, by the manufacturers. So that after a small while, you will want another cigarette to get the same calming effect (subconsious). Cigarette manufacturers are nothing less than legalized drug lords. I think they are big criminals, who earn money at the expense of the populations health and safety. It's totally ridicilous that selling cigarettes still is allowed AT ALL. Well... Not that ridicilous, if you keep in mind that short term thinking is always what the politicians who are in charge do - they think it's good for employment and income of the government. Firstly, they just can't calculate (you have to take in account the negative effects, like healthcare and house and company fires, which they don't). Secondly, employment in itself isn't a goal - it's a means to live. People should share the available employment more. But many people are egocentric and don't want to share their job opputunity with others. This, while it only has positive effects: people can work less hours and have more fun.

PS: my mother smoked for many years, and stopped approx. 25 years ago. She can now somewhat more easily climb stairs, but her lungs are still demolished for a large part. And she got some other health problems. She thinks the smoking can't be the cause after 25 years. It IS the cause. She's just ignorant and stubbern about it as many smokers are.
