Medical Malpractice Lawyer — Lung Cancer Kills up to 24,000 American Non-Smokers per Year

It is a little known fact that non-smokers get lung cancer too.  In fact, 10-15% of lung cancer occurs in people who never smoked.  In the United States, 16,000 to 24,000 non-smokers die each year from lung cancer.  A new study of 2.4 million non-smokers conducted in Europe, North America and Asia reveals new information about the risk factors for lung cancer in non-smokers.  According to the study, male non-smokers are significantly more likely than female non-smokers to die of lung cancer. The study is available for free review online at PLoS Medicine.
