In a new assessment of cancer data, researchers from the National Cancer Institute found that men are more than twice as likely as women to die of lung, skin, kidney and liver cancers. Overall, not including sex-specific or breast cancers, men's death rates are 1.9 times higher than women's, according to the new research. Lifestyle factors caused the divide. For example, researchers found that men are more than five times as likely to die of lip and larynx cancers, two cancers linked to tobacco and heavy alcohol use.
