Lung Cancer in African-American Men: Protect Your Family and Yourself

Lung Cancers Are Mostly Caused by Smoking

African-American men have the highest rates of lung cancer in the U.S.

When You Smoke Around Your Family, Everyone Smokes!

The smoke from your cigarettes, called secondhand smoke, can cause lung cancer and other health problems in people who have never smoked, even kids.

There’s No Safe Way to Smoke

Menthol cigarettes are just as dangerous as nonmenthol cigarettes.

It’s Never Too Late to Quit

Your risk for lung cancer goes down when you quit, no matter how old you are or how long you have smoked.

Quitting Can Be Hard, and You May Need Help

Ask your doctor for help or visit smokefree.gov, call 1 (800) QUIT-NOW, or text the word QUIT to 47848 from your mobile phone.
