Everyone knows smoking can cause lung cancer. But it also causes a whole array of other varieties of the disease, from pancreatic cancer to leukaemia.
Now, new research sheds light on just how deadly tobacco can be when smokers get cancer.
Read on to find out more.
Smoking is responsible for many cancer deaths, new study finds
causes more than 48% of deaths from the 12 types of cancer
sometimes caused by smoking, according to the new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine.
Smoking caused more than 80% of lung cancer deaths as well as 77% of larynx cancer deaths. Other top cancers caused by smoking include oesophagus, kidney and liver cancer
Researchers analysed 2011 data from interviews conducted by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the study. Overall, researchers estimate that approximately 168,000 people will die of cancer due to smoking in the United States each year.

The real key to healing cancer is to wipe out the stealth disease lurking behind it...
I admit I was downright shocked when I found out that cancer isn't actually what kills most cancer patients! And I've been a doctor for well over 20 years - so not much surprises me anymore.
Even more astounding - this monumental discovery goes back to the 1970s when former US Air Force Dr Joseph Gold uncovered the REAL killer, a condition that no one in the medical field was even talking about!
That's right - the real culprit behind 3 out of every 4 cancer deaths isn't cancer at all. No! It's a syndrome you've probably never even heard of - called cachexia (pronounced "ka-kek-see-ah").
And if you or someone you love is battling cancer... You definitely can't afford to ignore what could very well be the only natural compound that stops this stealth killer in its tracks.
Researchers say tobacco use need be more controlled
The study’s researchers note that the prevalence of smoking has been on the decline in recent decades but argue that more needs to be done.
Continued progress in reducing cancer mortality, as well as deaths from many other serious diseases, will require more comprehensive tobacco control, including targeted cessation support,” they conclude.
