When my late wife didn't feel well for her annual physical, none of three major medical centers could figure out what was wrong with her. The next year the first x-ray revealed terminal, inoperable, squamous cell lung cancer. Those cells doubling and redoubling had gone from undetectable to terminal. She went through the radiation treatments and the chemotherapy but 14 months later, she died; and her grandchildren don't have a grandmother because of those damned cigarettes.
