In the developed countries major risk factors are tobacco and alcohol consumption while in the developing countries like India, Indonesia, Iran, Bangladesh, China, Nepal, are betel quid chewing and
Dietary habits, ethanol and tobacco consumption as predictive factors in the development of esophageal carcinoma in patients with head and neck neoplasms.
TLDR
Investigation of esophageal cancer prevalence, its risk factors (ethanol and tobacco consumption) and dietary habits in patients with head and neck cancer found no association between carcinoma of the esophagus and dietary practices in patients who developed esphageal neoplasms.

TLDR
It was possible to conclude that patients who did not drink or smoke were older and presented with smaller tumor size, lower incidence of ganglion metastasis and lower tumor stage compared with alcohol and tobacco users.
SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA OF THE HEAD AND NECK IN NEVER SMOKER-NEVER DRINKERS: A DESCRIPTIVE
TLDR
It is likely that no single known factor is responsible for a majority of SCCHN in NSNDs, which are commonly young women with oral tongue cancer, elderly women with gingi- val/buccal cancer, or young to middle-aged men with oropha- ryngeal cancer.
Nasopharyngeal carcinoma risk by histologic type in central China: Impact of smoking, alcohol and family history
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cigarette smoking and family history of cancer could serve independently and jointly as risk factors for etiology of Nasopharyngeal carcinoma and might affect the risk of histology‐specific NPC differently.

TLDR
The analysis indicated that marijuana use may interact with mutagen sensitivity and other risk factors to increase the risk of head and neck cancer.
Tobacco use and oral cancer: a global perspective.
TLDR
All forms of tobacco represent risk factors for oral cancer, but on present evidence, snuff habits as they exist in Scandinavia and probably in the United States carry lower risks of serious health hazards, including oral cancer.
Risk factors for laryngeal cancer
TLDR
A role of diet in the causation of laryngeal cancer is suggested, and the habit of drinking a local tea called “mate” was associated with a threefold increase in risk, after controlling for the effects of age and tobacco and alcohol consumption.
Risk factors for cancer of the tongue in uruguay
TLDR
It was concluded that black tobacco smoking and alcohol drinking were the strongest risk factors for cancer of the tongue in Uruguay and their effects combine according to a multiplicative model.
Risk factors for oral cancer in Brazil: A case‐control study
TLDR
Tobacco and alcohol consumption were the strongest risk factors irrespective of the anatomical site and a significant protective effect was observed for consumption of carotene‐rich vegetables and citric fruits, but not for green vegetables in general.
Paan without tobacco: An independent risk factor for oral cancer
TLDR
An independent effect of paan without tobacco in the causation of oral cancer is identified, which may be of significance in South Asian communities where paan is used, and among health‐care providers who treat persons from South Asia.

TLDR
This review describes 21 published studies of the cancer risks associated with smokeless tobacco use, 20 of which are of the case-control type, and describes each study according to the specific anatomic sites and to the type of smokeless Tobacco products for which it provides relative risks of cancer.
Hereditary and environmental risk factors; clinical and laboratory risk matters for head and neck, especially oral, cancer and precancer.
TLDR
Tobaccos, heavy alcohol consumption, and areca nut remain the dominant risk factors, with confirmation of the protective effects of diets rich in antioxidants, and there is emerging evidence of a small, but real, risk associated with occupational and other air pollution.
Risk factors for laryngeal cancer
TLDR
This case-control study comprised 100 histologically verified laryngeal cancer patients and 100 hospital controls matched with cases by sex, age and place of residence to study the association of marital status, educational level, hard liquor consumption, cigarette smoking, and unfavorable working conditions with cancer of the larynx.
Marijuana Smoking and Head and Neck Cancer
TLDR
It will be of interest to examine potential field cancerization of the upper aerodigestive tract by marijuana and to explore marijuana as a risk factor for oral premalignant lesions.
