Everyone knows about Breast Cancer awareness and all the activities that take place throughout the year. You see NFL players with pink socks and everyone is wearing pink ribbons. That is all great and I completely support those efforts.
But did you know that Lung Cancer kills more women each year then Breast cancer cases? The CDC statistics for 2011, last available numbers, is 40,000 Breast type deaths in women and 443 in men. For the same year 70,000 Lung type deaths in women and 86,000 in Men.
I just want to get it out there that some forms of Lung Cancer can be prevented. Number 1, stop smoking if you do. Easier said then done I know. Number 2, test for Radon gas and fix if you test high. It’s that simple.
Lets try to eradicate both types of and save some lives. Test for Radon today.
