Lung Cancer Screening Holds Significant Promise in Saving Millions of Lives
Date:11/4/2010

ddition, costs for infrastructure and screening may be expensive and could be born by a tobacco product user fee given that tobacco is the leading cause of lung cancer.  Also, smoking cessation counseling and referral ought to be a routine part of the screening to capitalize on this teachable moment and encourage smoking cessation.  Public health leaders nationally are jubilant at this news and feel all our hopes for this technology have finally been realized," she said.  

Legacy is dedicated to building a world where young people reject tobacco and anyone can quit. Located in Washington, D.C., the national public health organization helps American live longer, healthier lives. Legacy develops programs that address the health effects of tobacco use, especially among vulnerable populations disproportionately affected by the toll of tobacco, through grants, technical assistance and training, partnerships, youth activism, and counter-marketing and grassroots marketing campaigns. The foundation's programs include truth®, a national youth smoking prevention campaign that has been cited as having contributed to significant declines in youth smoking; EX®, an innovative public health program designed to speak to smokers in their own language and change the way they approach quitting; and research initiatives exploring the causes, consequences and approaches to reducing tobacco use. The American Legacy Foundation was created as a result of the November 1998 Master Settlement Agreement (MSA) reached between attorneys general from 46 states, five U.S. territories and the tobacco industry.
