Quit Them Cancer Sticks

While we tend to smoke less than white women, we are just as likely to have lung cancer and more likely to die from it. Smoking also increases our chance of cervical cancer, heart disease, gum disease and eye problems that can lead to blindness. Talk to your doctor about how to quit.
