Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death

Most cases of lung cancer death, is caused by cigarette smoking. Around 90 percent of men are the victim of lung cancer caused by smoking, while 80 percent of women are the victim of lung cancer.

Is there a difference in gender related to this lung cancer caused by cigarette smoke? Are men more sensitive to the cigarette smoke, which contains over 4000 chemicals, or is it easier for women to get lung cancer due to smoking? In general, are there more women smoking than men, and is this related to lung cancer as well? Is cigarette the only cause for lung cancer, or can the demographic surrounding also influence the chance on lung cancer? How can we mainly reduce lung cancer, can we make a different cigarette that doesn’t contain so many chemicals? These are the questions I will be focusing on in my localization story.
