Most people when faced with the challenge to quit smoking normally think of it as just a means to stop or reduce the risk of getting lung cancer. However, the benefits you get when you quit smoking are very many. Most people may not know this but you stand to benefit a lot when you stop smoking. These benefits can be a motivation for you to stop smoking; this is because everyone knows quitting smoking is a very hard and difficult affair.
Lung cancer is the cause of about thirty percent cancer deaths in men and about twenty percent cancer deaths in women. Lung cancer is therefore a big public health challenge. Even more interesting is the fact that almost ninety percent of people with lung cancer were once smokers or are still smoking. This is therefore an indicator that smoking is the major cause of lung cancer.
