The latest figures, calculated from 2015 cancer data, showed that tobacco smoke caused around 32,200 cases of cancer in men (17.7 per cent of all male cancer cases) and around 22,000 (12.4 per cent) in women in the UK.

Poor lifestyle choices like abusing alcohol, overeating, smoking, and excess tanning boost cancer rates in the United Kingdom.

Other preventable causes of cancer included drinking alcohol and eating too little fibre, it said.

The CRUK research team hopes authorities would help curb cancer rates through tobacco and junk food taxes, advertising bans, and boring packaging for cigarettes. People regard being large as increasingly normal.

Rachel Rawson, of Breast Cancer Care, says: 'We can not turn a blind eye to the evidence that both being overweight and drinking alcohol increase the risk of developing breast cancer.

Last night Professor Linda Bauld, who leads the CRUK's prevention efforts, said the barrage of criticism levelled at the the charity had not influenced the change, but that the adjustment took place to make it "absolutely clear that not everyone who".
