"In a single cigarette has 4 thousand types of chemicals, including 400 species of toxic or poisonous substances and 40 types of carcinogens are toxic substances that cause cancer," said Staff Medical Functional Dharmais Cancer Hospital Dr Eddy Soeratman.

Lung cancer, according to Dr. Eddy, is a disease that can not be detected early. This then makes the lung cancer patients, newly come to the hospital is always with advanced-stage cancer or four.
