Further Information

An interesting 1999 article from the Journal of Theoretics that uses the data of the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control to show us that the data does not say what we are told they say.

"Yes, a US white male (USWM) cigarette smoker has an 8% lifetime chance of dying from lung cancer but the USWM nonsmoker also has a 1% chance of dying from lung cancer.  In fact, the data used is biased in the way that it was collected and the actual risk for a smoker is probably less.  I personally would not smoke cigarettes and take that risk, nor recommend cigarette smoking to others, but the numbers were less than I had been led to believe.  I only did the data on white males because they account for the largest number of lung cancers in the US, but a similar analysis can be done for other groups using the CDC data.

"You don't see this type of information being reported, and we hear things like, 'if you smoke you will die', but when we actually look at the data, lung cancer accounts for only 2% of the annual deaths worldwide and only 3% in the US.

"If everyone in the world stopped smoking 50 years ago, the premature death rate would still be well over 80% of what it is today.1 (But I thought that smoking was the major cause of preventable death...) ."
