Bradford's adults unaware of number of UK cancer deaths

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Bradford's adults unaware of number of UK cancer deaths Bradford's adults unaware of number of UK cancer deaths

Few people in Yorkshire are aware of the level of harm caused by tobacco smoking each year in the UK, according to figures released today by Cancer Research UK.

Only about a sixth (16 per cent) of the 321 adults surveyed in Yorkshire and The Humber knew that there are 100,000 deaths as a result of smoking every year in the UK.

Smoking causes more than eight out of ten cases of lung cancer. At least 13 other types of cancer are also linked to tobacco, including oesophageal, mouth, bladder, bowel, pancreatic and kidney.

The findings also show there is strong public support to protect children from tobacco marketing and put all tobacco in plain packaging.
