Information on Lung Cancer:

Lung cancer can be caused by exposure to hazardous materials including asbestos, Agent Orange, and depleted uranium. Many veterans were exposed to these materials while in service and are at inceased risk for lung cancer. Lung cancer has a long latency period which means veterans might not show symptoms until decades after exposure to the hazards. To learn more about the causes of lung cancer, visit Lung Cancer Answers, http://www.lungcancer-prognosis.com/
