Cannabis for Lung Cancer

Studies and Information on Cannabis for Lung Cancer

Historically, lung cancer was a rare diagnosis until many new factors were introduced into society.

These factors include the advent of the industrial revolution, the introduction of cigarettes (tobacco smoke and second-hand smoke are recognized as the major cause for developing lung cancer), increasing levels of air pollution (e.g., exhaust, asbestos, coal dust, soot), and the cumulative damage of ionizing radiation (x-rays).

Lung cancer is now the number-one occurring cancer and the leading fatal cancer in the world.
