Depends - there are different types of lung cancer.
Smoking is the main cause of small cell lung cancer.
Asbestos exposure is the main cause of mesophelioma lung cancer.

There are other types as well where it is not as clear cut.

Maybe so. But the greatest cause of deaths on the planet is alcohol. Be advised to alcohol by a bus driver, can kill about 40 people at once. That same driver would smoke a whole pack of cigarettes in 30 minutes before driving the bus will not be endangering the lives of others, only himself.
Because you no longer responds to emails and they send you?
