MONTREAL -- Beyond the lungs and heart, tobacco can also affect the digestive system, Quebec Council on Tobacco and Health (CQTS) says.

The council took aim at these unknown impacts of cigarettes in its 44th week for a tobacco-free Quebec.

Over time, the CQTS has often tried to educate Quebecers about the harmful effects of tobacco on the lungs and cardiovascular system. But this year, the council wanted to focus on the impacts of smoking on digestive cancers - liver, colorectal, pancreas, stomach and esophagus.
