Smokers ignorant of cancer cause

(This one would have been good for yesterday's Moron Monday.)

Australia: "Fewer Victorians die of lung cancer but most smokers do not know cigarettes cause it, research shows.

"Cancer Council figures show that lung cancer deaths dropped from 1805 in 2003 to 1777 in 2004.

"But when smokers were asked to name the diseases caused by smoking, six out of 10 did not mention lung cancer, despite it being responsible for 80% of cases."
