Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in the United States among every ethnic group... 1 in every 3 cancer deaths. 

Lung cancer will kill:

Over three times as many men as prostate cancer.
Nearly twice as many women as breast cancer.
An average of 437 people a day.

Over 60% of new cases are never smokers or for

mer smokers, many of whom quit decades ago.

One in five women and one in twelve men diagnosed with lung cancer have never smoked.
