    please join me in my outrage. yet another way to ignore the leading cancer killer in the world

    Cancer funding looks like this:

    Lung cancer receives the lowest amount of funding per person but is the biggest killer.

    BC gets $25,000 per person
    LC gets $1,500 per person
    Not a penny of tobacco money has gone into reserch. It goes in to all these other programs.
    Its so not right.

      Quite an ironic isn't it and such a tragedy. You would certainly think that since cigarettes is one of the major contributors to the disease that lung cancer research would receive top dollar from their profits and the states taxes. That would make way too much sense wouldn't it.
