This year we are reminded to close the care gap as we fight against lung cancer. Let us add more meaning to today by creating more awareness about lung cancer.
The most crucial step to preventing lung cancer is to stay away from cigarette smoke. Quitting smoking can reduce your risk of lung cancer. However, passive smoking is equally dangerous. If you don’t smoke but have exposure to cigarette smoke, you are also at a higher risk of lung cancer.
Nonetheless, regular exercise helps improve lung function, reduce inflammation and improve overall health. Similarly, a healthy balanced diet will prevent chronic diseases. Identifying lung cancer at an early stage helps to increase the chance of success with treatment.
Happy World Lung Cancer Day!
