One of my friends asked me a question and I had no idea about the answer. So here goes...Is there any link between smoking cigars and cancer, either lung or mouth? I did a medline search but I didn't find anything, so I'm not sure if any studies have been done on this topic directly.
Thanks for the info!

Of course, any tobacco product. Not lung, because you don't inhale cigars. Mouth, tongue etc. Ditto for chewing tobacco.

"Cigarette smoking is the cause of 85% to 90% of lung cancer cases; the risk for lung cancers in smokers is 30 times greater than in nonsmokers. Smoking cigars or pipes doubles the risk for lung cancer compared to non-smokers....."

Is it true that Cuban cigars have a very specific taste which makes them different (most experts agree the best), but you can find cigars ranging from light to full body in strength. cigars-topcubans.com (http://www.topcubans.com)

It's true you don't inhale when you smoke a cigar. but there is still the second hand smoke.
