Cancer Facts : How Does Lung Cancer Develop?
I have a few family members who smoke and my grandmother is the worst one. She has a very bad cough and it seems like it is getting worse ,so I try to help her out by throwing out her cigarettes. :)
I think laws should change for smoking age because more teens around the world smoke, and they can get Lung Cancer at an early age.
