According to Marilynn Marchione in the Montreal Gazette via The Associated Press on January 24th, 2013, a new study has showed that U.S. women's risk of developping lung cancer has become greater. The risk for men stopped rising in the 1980's, but for women it is still rising because more and more women are smoking, and they are starting younger. The risk for lung cancer is greater than the one for breast cancer, however lung cancer is not considered the courageous battle that breast cancer is. Dr. Steven A. Schroeder of the University of California, San Francisco, wrote: "More women die of lung cancer than of breast cancer. But there is no 'race for the cure' for lung cancer, no brown ribbon" or high-profile advocacy groups for lung cancer.
