Research has shown that tobacco is linked to 17 different types of cancer, yet smoking can be avoided easily.
Cancers due to tobacco smoking are therefore the most easily preventable.
Of the cancers linked to tobacco smoking, lung cancer is the worst; lung cancer is one of the most common types of cancer and is the most deadly of all forms of cancer.Up till now, asking people to quit smoking has been by persuastion with little success but a new study published in the journal; THORAX, showed that scan scare tactics seem to work better by  increasing the number of those who quit by about two folds from 5 percent to 10 percent within two weeks of being shown the CT scan of their lungs.
The study was carried out by Cardiff, Liverpool and Queen Mary universities, all of them based in the UK.
