Smoking cessation

Smoking causes about 30 percent of all cancer deaths in Canada. (Health Canada- Quit Smoking)

 

Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemicals and at least 60 percent of these are cancerous. Tobacco use has been linked to many cancers including lung, lip, pharynx, larynx, oesophagus, stomach, pancreas, kidney and bladder. Tobacco use also increases the risk of colorectal, cervical and possibly breast and liver cancer. (Canadian Cancer Society- Smoking & Tobacco)
