SMOKING AND CANCER

 

  • Cancer is a public health emergency!

 

  • Nearly 1/4 of cancer deaths are from smoking (~2 million per year worldwide)

 

  • Completely preventable

 

  • Not adequately addressed at a national level (minimal impact from all current “approved” strategies combined – over 5,000,000 current smokers in Canada!)
