Women Understate Lung Cancer Risk
Few American women realize that lung cancer is more likely to kill them than any other type of cancer. A recent survey asked women to pick the top killer of women from a list of cancers, 51% picked breast cancer. Only 22% picked lung cancer. The American Lung Association (ALA) did the survey. It included 1,000 women. About half of them said they were not concerned about lung cancer because they didn't smoke.
