TWO of my immediate family members died of lung cancer over the past five years due to smoking. The misery they went through during treatment, especially during their final days, was horrific. On top of that, their family members were also subjected to emotional and physical distress. People like me watched helplessly as our loved ones slipped away.
Smoking kills; that’s a scientific fact. In Malaysia, it is the third most common cause of cancer, with about 95% of the patients diagnosed at stages three and four. Smoking is the primary reason for lung cancer in this country.
