According to the National Cancer Institute, cigarette smoking causes 87 percent of lung cancer deaths. It is also responsible for many other cancers and health problems, such as lung disease, heart and blood vessel disease, stroke and cataracts. Quitting smoking can reduce your risk of these problems. The earlier you quit, the greater the health benefit. For more information, please visit the National Institutes of Health websites.
