LCA is indeed a good group.
Altho, they do bow to current PC thinking. They say: "Over 60% of new cases are never smokers or former smokers, many of whom quit decades ago."

Their data shows that about 80% of new cases are never-smokers or former smokers. :roll:

Their data shows that 20.9% of new lung cancers happen to current smokers; but, about that same percentage of the adult population are current smokers.

Sooooo, what is the big deal??? :roll:

I know Gary...I know...I feel like they are caught between a rock and a hard place....like they don't want to be PC, but feel that they have to be out of fear of the establishment and the media, etc...

Political Correctness is a disease, a plague.
It is a contagious mental disorder that once infected by it, is damn near impossible to cure.
