November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month (Part 1 of 3)

November is lung cancer awareness month and in helping spread awareness, we are dedicating this month's articles to focus on the two biggest contributors towards this type of cancer: smoking, and occupational conditions.

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide, with 1.8 million new cases being diagnosed yearly. Educating oneself and acknowledging the issues is the best preventive measures in protecting yourself and your people. (Family, friends, guests, employees).

Did you know?

Because tobacco smoke is such a potent carcinogen, secondary causes of lung cancer are often diminished in perceived importance.

Most occupational lung diseases are caused by repeated, long-term exposure, but even a severe, single exposure to a hazardous agent can damage the lungs.

Stay Tuned!

Our next article will focus on how smoking affects our lungs, as well as what precautions people and businesses can take to significantly improve their air quality and overall health.
