According to the Centers for Disease Control, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death and the second most common cancer among both men and women in the U.S.

Most lung cancers, about 90 percent, are linked to cigarette smoking and affect more than 200,000 people in the U.S. annually.

Thinking of cutting down or stopping smoking? Do your research before jumping on to e-cigarettes. You may find a different way that may be more suitable to your needs and your wallet!
