Smoking kills more women
Thursday 23 December 1993
A total of 10,994 women died from lung, bronchus and trachea tumours in England and Wales in 1992 - a 1 per cent increase on 1991 and a 24 per cent rise since 1982.
But fewer men are dying from these cancers - 22,668 last year, a 3 per cent decrease since 1991 and a 15 per cent drop since 1982. Male deaths from heart disease also dropped: 79,182 last year, 3 per cent down on 1991 and an 11 per cent decrease over the past 10 years.
Breast cancer claimed 13,663 lives in 1992, a 1 per cent drop over the previous 12 months, but a 10 per cent increase since 1982.
