Decrease in Lung Cancer Deaths over the Years

It was recently revealed in a new study that with the help of the new methods of tobacco control, there were as many as 800, 000 lung cancer patients deaths averted last year. This was with the help of the initiatives of the U. S. tobacco control. It was further added though, that if the entire population of the country had given up smoking from then on, there would've been about 3 times more lives saved.

The study was conducted by a team from University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Rice University and a number of other institutions. The research is of the view that due to the number of new campaigns launched by the government for the purpose of making more and people aware the need for giving up smoking has definitely been working.

"A complementary strategy, focused on the development of an appropriate communications about potentially lower risk tobacco products, may be one of the most meaningful actions that the Food & Drug Administration can take to reduce the health effects of smoking", said David Sylvia, a spokesman for Philip Morris USA, in a statement.

The campaigning in the nation has definitely been fruitful and any people have quit smoking over the years. There have been continuous efforts of helping people give up the awful habit by placing bans of smoking at varies public places. Providing this sort of support has worked for the people and this is the reason for the decline in the rates of smokers. More needs to be done; however, because there are new smokers being made every single day, as the fight is definitely a tough one and there is die need for helping the people who are still smoking.
