Lung cancer is the one of the deadliest disease in the world. Cancer is a disease in which cells develop out of balance in the body. Lung cancer is the primary cause of cancer mortality among both men and women in the United States, and the second most diagnosed disease. After decades of growth, lung cancer levels decrease nationwide, with fewer cigarettes being consumed. The most frequent source of lung cancer is cigarette-smoking. Lung cancer may also be induced by the usage of certain kinds of cigarettes. In this paper we propose a classification of predictive analysis through Deep Belief Network and K-Nearest neighbor (KNN) classifier.

Smoking is a process in which a drug is ingested and smoke is absorbed into the blood stream. Tobacco smoking is mostly used as a prescribing pathway for illicit drug consumption because burning of the dried plant leaves vaporizes and absorbs illegal drugs with accelerated ingestion through the bloodstream through the lungs and enters the body's tissue. The dried leaves of the tobacco plant, which are rolled onto a tiny square of rice paper, are one of the most widely used in smoking and make a thin, circular ring which are traditionally called "cigarettes." Cigarettes are mostly developed by manufacturers, but may also be laminated by the hand using loose tobacco & rolling paper. Other tools include cigars, pipes, bidis, hookahs, bongs & smoking vaporizers. The paper explains the impacts of smoking on the health of the human race and seeks to identify obstacles and drivers for cessation of smoking.
