Smoking Update

After a bit of reserach conducted by Patrick, I learned that lung cancer is on the rise in the U.S. I also learned that there were about 45,000 cases in Germany and 172,000 in the U.S. in 2005. Adjusted for population, the numbers were almost exact; .056% in Germany and .057% in the U.S. Hopefuly the recently inacted smoking laws in the U.S. will show results in the near future. Maybe soon, Germans will realize the unpleasantries of second hand smoke and reduce exposure.
