Today Cancer is the Deadliest Killer

But the heart health benefits are seen far more quickly, “If you stop smoking, you benefit from that for heart disease within three to five years - your risk comes down to that of a non-smoker,” he said. “Whereas if you stop smoking, it takes about 20 years before your risk of lung cancer drops down to that of the non-smoking population.”
