MMWR Introduction

According to the MMWR Surveillance Summary, "Surveillance for Cancers Associated with Tobacco Use—United States, 1999–2004," findings suggest that approximately 2.4 million cases of tobacco-related cancer were diagnosed during 1999–2004. High rates occurred among men, black and non-Hispanic populations, and older adults. Higher incidence rates of lung and laryngeal cancer occurred in the South compared with other regions, particularly the West, consistent with high smoking patterns in the South.
