Why shouldn't smoking be blamed? It is proven over and over again to be one of the leading causes of cancer.

There seem to be an awful lot of non smokers getting cancer from passive smoking that are never actually around smokers. 'Co-incidence' can be so deadly..

I'm awfully sorry for your losses, and hope the best for those who are still with you.
Cancer is still very foggy in the scientific community, and scientists still do not know what the direct cause of cancer is. I agree that non-smokers can get cancer too, but the proportions of non-smokers to smokers getting cancer makes them look like a drop in a bucket.
Things that we know to cause cancer, such as radiation, ultra-violet sun rays, and exhuast fume pollution are unfortunately around us everyday. But cars, cellphones, and sunlight are all essential things that we may need to survive.
