Home Science Health Lung cancer smokes breast cancer in Australian women
The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare reports that lung cancer, for the first time, will kill more Australian women than breast cancer because women are smoking more than men.


The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare (AIHW) report, released on Friday, December 19, 2008, states that lung cancer, for the first time in Australia, is more deadly than breast cancer for women.

In fact, the AIHW report called “Cancer in Australia: An Overview 2008” shows that the rate of lung cancer for women is predicted to increase by 0.4% annually for the next several years.

However, lung cancer rates for men will decrease by 1.1% for men for this same period.

The Canberra Times article “Gasp takes grasp: lung cancer top killer of Australian women” states that during the decades of the 1970s and 80s, many more women began to smoke than men.

In fact, during this time, man actually reduced their rate of smoking.

Consequently, now thirty years or so later, these female smokers are now finding out the devastating effects of smoking tobacco products.
