In 2000, the U. S. has 67,600 women die from lung cancer, 40,800 died from breast cancer, a difference of over 27 thousand people. Since 1950 until today, women died from lung cancer have increased 600% or more. The United States women have one of every five people smoking. Worse, more young women,especially between the ages of 10 to 20 women smokers increased 30% than 10 years ago.

Also, the United States medical experts issued a report up to 675 pages points out that cigarettes make more and more serious threat to health and lives of women in modern life. It is disclosed a shocking number in the report: more than 40 thousand people die of smoking-related diseases nationwide every year, and 39% are women, which is doubled more than 1965. What even more serious is that many young women have involved in the ranks of smokers. This report sounded the alarm for the people who did not face this issue – in the whole world, there is a woman died of smoking in every three and a half seconds。

In the United States, 126,000 women die from disease related smoking every year, also there are 3,500 infants died during pregnancy because of smoking mothers.

Why so many women smoke, especially in the modern society. Maybe it is caused by the modern culture, the fast-paced modern life. As the women who aspire independent are eager to vent unfunded ideal and stubbornness of refused to follow the others, had not found them choose a subtle advertising visualize -the life like a man, it is merchants’ success. The real equality between men and women does not simply mean that women can do what men can do. Moreover, smoking is not a healthy lifestyle actually.

Also many women are passive smoking. Studies have shown: in a family, if the husband is a smoker, even if the wife does not smoke, when often live together, the wife will have the chance of lung cancer twice to three times higher than non-smoking husband. The greater husband smoking, the bigger chances his wife had lung cancer If someone smokes in the family, children in the family are susceptible to bronchitis and pneumonia.

So we should better be non-smokers, not only for ourselves, but also for our family. is a new star of Cancer Rehabilitation Website it will be to provide the latest information about Chinese medicine treatment of lung cancer , breast cancer, and mesothelioma
