*50% of new cases are former smokers, many who quit decades ago.<br />
*Another 10 - 15% have never smoked.<br />
*Lung cancer is the HIGHEST cause of cancer deaths;<br />more deaths than breast, prostate, colon andliver cancers combine...
*One in every three cancer deaths; three times as many men as prostate cancer twice as many women as breast cancer.<br />
*Only 16% of all new cases are being diagnosed at an early stage when lung cancer is curable. <br />
*The overall 5-year survival rate for lung cancer is still only 15%.. <br />
..while the 5-year survival rate for breast cancer is 90%, for prostate cancer 99% and for colon cancer 66%. <br />
*Lung cancer is the least funded of these cancers.<br />
Why?  <br />
*No priority or sense of urgency within federal research agencies.<br />
*Blame the victim mentality similar to AIDs.<br />
