Lung Cancer

I would say that 3 slides of information would be sufficient.

Plan Your Presentation:  Work with your team members to start the process of selecting how you plan to focus your presentation by determining the most significant points made in the annotated bibliography and team member’s discussion boards.  Take those as the basis to build your presentation on, assigning each partner/team member his or her respective role and talking points. Keep in mind that a focus on the social determinants of health that affect your health issue and selected population must be a focus of this presentation. You must include a conclusive slide that demonstrates synthesis of the information in order to develop an evidence-based conclusion and proposed solutions for the future.

I have a couple of resources from my bibliography, I would like to use a little information from both to describe hormonal effect and smoking effects.

Amongst all of the various cancers, lung cancer is ranked the number one cause of cancer deaths. The U.S. is ranked the highest in mortality rates due to the large amount of tobacco use. Studies show that tobacco smoking is the cause of lung cancer in men and that there are more male tobacco abusers than women. Tobacco in general (pipes, cigars, cigarettes) can cause lung cancer, but the leading cause is cigarette smoking. According to research, the tar in a cigarette mixed with heat causes a carcinogenic agent that affects the lungs. However, there are many factors that play along, i.e. how long has the person smoked for, how long the tobacco is inhaled before expelled, how many cigarettes are smoked a day, etc.  Even though mortality rates in men (who are cigarette smokers) have shown to be higher than rates in women (who are smokers), there has been a larger decrease overtime in lung cancer mortality and incidence rates in men compared to women since 1975. Lung cancer incidence rates in women (never smokers) have shown to be higher than in men (never smokers). There are currently no definite causes of lung cancer in non-smokers, but there are factors that may play a role in it, i.e. secondhand smoke, exposure to chemicals, asbestos, environmental pollutants, etc.
