Cancer is the second leading cause of death in America. Of all forms of cancer, lung cancer kills the most people each year. Those deaths could have been prevented: most are the result of years of smoking. The link between lung cancer and smoking was clearly stated in the Surgeon General's report, "Smoking and Health," in 1964. The evidence has grown steadily stronger since then, and the link is by now common knowledge. In this book stories about Dr Hunter and the men and women he treats for lung cancer are interwoven with discussions of the disease and of the controversies surrounding tobacco addiction and lung cancer. The author gives the general reader a wealth of information about lung cancer - diagnosis, treatments, prognosis, epidemiology, natural history, sample X-rays and CAT scans - difficult to find outside the medical literature.
