 New Report Expands List of Diseases Caused by Smoking
Published 40 years after the surgeon general's first report on smoking - which concluded that smoking was a definite cause of three serious diseases - this newest report finds that cigarette smoking is conclusively linked to diseases such as leukemia, cataracts, pneumonia and cancers of the cervix, kidney, pancreas and stomach.
The report found that for a number of diseases and conditions associated with smoking, the evidence is not yet conclusive to establish a causal link.
For these illnesses, which include colorectal cancer, liver cancer, prostate cancer, and erectile dysfunction in men, additional studies are needed to reach the threshold of evidence required by the Surgeon General's strict causal criteria to declare that they are causally related to smoking.

While doing this survey, I came across at least one (1) disease that I am certain after research is autoimmune that was not on the AARDA list, so I included it, even though surgery cured the condition in the patient.
