YOUR TURN: The dangers of lung cancer

This week’s "Your Turn" segment goes to B. Miller. Miller sent us an email because she’s concerned that more needs to be done to warn people about the danger of lung cancer. In her words:

November is lung cancer awareness month. Lung cancer kills more people than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined. You don't have to smoke to get it. Please look into this and give it some attention. Yes, smoking greatly increases your chances of getting lung cancer, but there are many young people and women being diagnosed who have never smoked. Your station did an excellent report on this several years ago, but the community needs to be reminded of this tragic disease.

That’s B. Miller’s turn. Now it’s your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, visit us on Facebook or send an email to yourturn@wafb.com.
