Lung cancer kills more men and women in the United States than any other type of cancer. The American Cancer Society says nearly 160,000 people die from lung cancer every year. Unfortunately, Kentucky is at the top of the list when it comes to lung cancer deaths, with 74.8 deaths per 100,000 people. If you currently smoke or have a history of smoking, it’s important to pay attention to your body, get regular checkups with a physician and get screened for lung cancer if you’re a candidate.
Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of death and disease in the United States. Cigarette smoking kills more than 480,000 Americans each year, and more than 41,000 of those deaths are from exposure to secondhand smoke, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The menu on the left provides insights and tips to help you make the decision to quit using tobacco today. Do it for yourself. Do it for those you love. Do it for your health.
