Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Today (Monday August 1, 2016) is World Lung Cancer Day. " Lung cancer continues to be one of the most common cancers worldwide, claiming more lives yearly than breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. It is estimated that lung cancer accounts for nearly one in five cancer deaths globally. The History of World Lung Cancer Day: Lung cancer was a rare disease in early 20th century but its incidence has gradually increased with increased smoking and it has become the most common type of cancer in the world. The lung cancers accounts for 12.8% of cancer cases and 17.8% of deaths of cancer worldwide. Lung cancer is a preventable disease. The factors that play a role in cancer development include tobacco products, industrial products (uranium, radiation, asbestos) air pollution, and nutritional deficiencies. Recent studies have demonstrated that the critical factor increasing the risk of lung cancer is the long-term respiration of carcinogenic materials. How to Celebrate World Lung Cancer Day: It is important that IASLC members help communicate the vast threat lung cancer poses around the world. They need the public and the media to understand that new research, diagnosis and treatment breakthroughs in the last 10 years have brought new hope to patients and their families. To help spread the message about lung cancer, the IASLC created a series of fact sheets focusing on different regions around the globe and have translated them into several different languages. You could look up some of these and inform friends and family about the risks and factors contributing to them. ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year' . #fit #follow #like #pop #awareness #wp #fb #twitter #tweet #buffer #tagsforlike #pop #pic #photo #oftheday #ello #lungcancer #worldwide #cancer #spreadthemessage #communicate #stopsmoking #donotstartsmoking . @instagram @sharpharmade
