Lung cancer is responsible for more than 1 in 4 cancer deaths. It's a health crisis that demands attention and increased efforts to lower the death toll.
The best way for us to combat the disease is to take this issue back to the source. Cigarettes are the most common contributing factor of lung cancer, and are the very beginning of many tragedies. Proposition 29 on California's June ballot would raise money for cancer research by raising taxes on cigarettes.
Discouraging people from purchasing cigarettes while attaining funding for lung cancer research would help prevent and treat lung cancer.
Big tobacco is very aware that this initiative will be bad for their business, and will surely spend tens of millions of dollars to get people to vote no on the proposition. But they could care less about lung cancer or our health, as long as they're making money.
Defeat big tobacco and say yes to a healthy California. Pledge to vote YES on Proposition 29 in California's June ballot!
