ABSTRACT
The authors estimates how much reductions in tobacco smoking have contributed to the decrease in mortality rates from cancer in the U.S. They reveal why it is difficult to quantify the benefits of large scale, preventive interventions taken in the past. They consider the impact of smoking reduction on the number of deaths from cancer. They recognize that active smoking causes many other cancers besides lung cancer.
