Abstract

Lung cancer deserves special emphasis because:
  1. 1.

    already the number one cancer killer in the world, it continues to rise at epidemic rates (see Fig. 3);

     
  2. 2.

    it is almost entirely preventable through control of cigarette smoking; and

     
  3. 3.

    control has not occurred because those making decisions around the world have failed to act adequately.
