KatieB Posted September 25, 2012 Share Posted September 25, 2012 Help a girl out. I'm conflicted. I have been asked to write an article on awareness and prevention for a health organization. You know my quandry...the smoking issue has long stigmatized lung cancer efforts (many people think only smokers get LC and that it's a 100% preventable disease) and we know now that stopping smoking or never smoking at all doesn't make you immune to getting lung cancer. Half of people diagnosed are ex or never smokers ...SO, my quandry...how do I write an adequate article about awareness and importance of prevention (being healthy) without feeding the misconceptions about who can get lung cancer? is that even possible? Maybe talk about prevention and the importance of follow up care for people who did once smoke and have higher risk factors? I just want to do it right. Thanks for any advice.
