Lung cancer in smokers vs non smokers, all breathing the same air

Studies in other countries have broken down the risk further to differentiate between never smokers, former smokers, and current smokers.

In a 2006 European study, the risk of developing lung cancer was:

0.2 percent for men who never smoked (0.4% for women)
5.5 percent of male former smokers (2.6% in women)
15.9 percent of current male smokers (9.5% for women)
24.4 percent for male "heavy smokers" defined as smoking more than 5 cigarettes per day (18.5 percent for women)
An earlier Canadian study quoted the lifetime risk for male smokers at 17.2 percent (11.6 percent in women) versus only 1.3 percent in male non-smokers (1.4 percent in female non-smokers).
