Secondhand smoke kills 600,000 a year worldwide
Secondhand smoke sickens millions and kills more than 600,000 people worldwide each year, including more than 165,000 children under 5, according to the first report to estimate the worldwide burden of disease and death from tobacco.
According to the new report, children are particularly vulnerable. About 40% are exposed to secondhand smoke, along with one-third of adults. Kids exposed to secondhand smoke are at higher risk of a variety of illnesses, such as asthma, pneumonia, ear infections and sudden infant death syndrome.
Almost half of all deaths from secondhand smoke are in adult women, while 28% are in children.
Health&Wellness Presentation: Lung Cancer caused by smoking
Smoking & Lung Cancer
The American Cancer Society (ACS) projected an estimated 1.6 million new cancer cases in 2011 and more than 572,000 deaths from cancer, about 1,500 per day.
Cancer causes about 25% of all deaths in the US, with
lung cancer
the leading killer among both men and women.
Lung cancer is the most preventable form of cancer death in our society.
Tobacco use accounts for at least 30% of all cancer deaths and 87% of lung cancer deaths.
Each year, about 3,400 non-smoking adults die of lung cancer as a result of breathing secondhand smoke.
Cancer Promoter: Tabacco Use
It is responsible for 30% of all cancer deaths and 87% of all lung cancer deaths
Smokers are more likely than non smokers to die from their lung cancer - 23 times more likely if they are men and 13 times more likely if they are women.

Treatments for
Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer
Treatment for
Small Cell Lung Cancer
For practical reasons, Small Cell Lung Cancer is usually staged as either limited or extensive.
In most cases, SCLC has already spread by the time it is found, so it usually cannot be treated by surgery.
If you are healthy enough, you'll probably get chemotherapy, regardless of the stage of your disease.
Heather Crowe

She died May 22, 2006 due to lung cancer caused by second hand smoke.
Radiation therapy
Other local treatments
Targeted therapies
*In many cases, more than one of these treatments are used.
