Breathe Healthy Air
Protect your DNA
Blow Lung Cancer Away

Did you know that most lung cancer is preventable?

You can prevent most lung cancer by protecting yourself and your family from breathing toxic air. Breathing toxic air can damage your DNA in your lungs, which can develop into lung cancer. DNA is the cell’s “instruction manual” that controls it’s normal growth and function. When DNA is damaged, a cell can begin growing out of control and create a cancer tumor.

Is your air toxic?

Your air could be toxic if…

  • High levels of radon gas are present in your indoor air at home, school, or work (common in Ohio)

  • You smoke cigarettes, cigars and pipes (immediate harm)

  • You or your children breathe secondhand smoke in your home, car, etc. (immediate harm)

  • Asbestos exposure
