When it comes to cancer many people see it as something is not preventable. But when it comes to cancers linked to cigarette smoking that couldn’t be more untrue. Tobacco has been proven to cause lung cancers and yet they are still available to buy. Tobacco companies care more about making money then saving people’s lives.
