Veterans Organizations Call For Early Lung Cancer Detection Research
...osed at an early stage when it can be cured.
In addition to greater exposure to known lung cancer carcinogens such as asbestos on older ships and submarines
and Agent Orange, veterans have higher "ever smoked" rates than the civilian population.
