Diary 264: Lung cancer and you
The Malaysia Ministry of Health provides the following message in the mass media.
9 in 10 lung cancer cases are attributed to smoking.
More than 85% of lung cancer patients die within 5 years because of late diagnosis.
Act now before it is too late.
Practise the following healthy lifestyle.
1. Be physically active.
2. Practise healthy eating (more vegetables and fruits)
3. Do not smoke.
A few of my colleagues are smokers. We are worrying over their long term health. My wife even told to me to remind them not to smoke too much.
The problem is difficulty in reducing or quiting smoking.
I hope they get the message from the media and our kind reminders.
