CA290 Radio PSA proposal My Radio PSA topic is going to be about women and cigarette smoking. Currently, lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among women in the United States (1). New research shows women have double the risk of developing lung cancer from smoking than do men (1). “In March 2001, the Office of the US Surgeon General released a long-awaited, detailed report entitled "Women and Smoking," along with the following statement: "When calling attention to public health problems, we must not misuse the word 'epidemic.' But there is no better word to describe the 600-percent increase since 1950 in women’s death rates for lung cancer, a disease primarily caused by cigarette smoking. Clearly, smoking-related disease among women is a full- blown epidemic." -- David Satcher, MD, PhD Smoking is the most preventable cause of early death in this country. The most recent CDC survey (from 2006) showed that about 1 in 5 American women aged 18 years or older (18%) smoked cigarettes.” (2).
