Cigarette Smoke Attacks Your Lungs


Lung cancer was once considered a rare type of cancer, but not anymore. If you are above the age of 45 years and have been an active smoker for the last 20 years, then you must get yourself screened for lung cancer on a yearly basis. Cigarette smoking increases a person’s chance of getting lung cancer by 15 to 30 times. Smokers are more likely to die from lung cancer than people who do not smoke.
