CDC African-American Men and Lung Cancer Awareness Sheet
According to the CDC, African-American men have the highest rates of lung cancer in the U.S. Smoking causes most lung cancers. There is no safe way to smoke and when someone smokes around people, everyone smokes! Secondhand smoke can cause lung cancer and other health problems for people who have never smoked, including children. Risk for lung cancer goes down when a person quits smoking. It’s never too late to quit.
