Calculate Your Risk of Lung Cancer

 
 
 

Assalaamu`Alaykum wa Rahmatullaahi wa Barakaatuhu

A burning cigarette is a health risk not only to the smoker but to everyone in the same room. The scientific evidence of tobacco hazards is strongest for smokers. However, research reveals that regular exposure to secondhand tobacco smoke also threatens the health of nonsmokers. 37,000 to 40,000 people die from heart and blood vessel disease caused by other people's smoke each year.

 

Attached below is an online lung cancer risk assessment tool for your consideration.

Lung Cancer Risk Assessment

 
 
This prediction tool can assess a long-term smoker's risk of developing lung cancer in the next 10 years based on the person's age, sex, smoking history, and asbestos exposure. Knowing about risk can help clinicians and patients make decisions about health care, such as whether to get screened for lung cancer.

Our research shows that among long-term smokers over the age of 50, risks of developing lung cancer can vary. However, the lung cancer risk of a person who has never smoked is typically much lower than the lowest percentages calculated by this tool. Quitting smoking not only reduces risk of lung cancer, but reduces risk of many other smoking-related health problems.

Who Can Use This Tool?

The tool can assess lung cancer risk of people who meet all of these conditions:

  • Age: 50 to 75 years old
  • Smoking History: 10 to 60 cigarettes a day for 25 to 55 years
  • Current Status: Current smokers, and former smokers who quit 20 years ago or less

How Was This Tool Developed?

Researchers at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, in collaboration with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, developed and tested this risk assessment tool. The tool is based on data from the Carotene and Retinol Efficacy Trial (CARET), a large, randomized trial of lung cancer prevention. More information about the development of this tool is available in: Bach PB et al. Variations in lung cancer risk among smokers. J Natl Cancer Inst 2003;95:470.

Smoking: A Social Poison

 

By Muhammad al-Jibaly

 

 

Excerpts .....

 

Harm To The Human Body

No one can deny the harm of smoking to the human body. The medical evidence for this is well established and overwhelming. 

The hazards of smoking to the health are hard to enumerate. Cancer, tuberculosis, heart attacks, asthma, coughing, premature birth, infertility, infections in the digestive system, high blood pressure, nervousness, mouth and teeth diseases, etc., are among the many health hazards that have been strongly linked to smoking.

These diseases may not appear all at once, however a smoker is most likely to suffer from some of them, and his suffering increases as he grows older. Furthermore, statistics have established that smokers' age is, on the average, ten years less than other people's.

This is sufficient to prohibit smoking. Islam prohibits any action that causes harm to oneself or to other people. Allaah Subhaanahu wa Ta`aala says (interpretation of the meaning):

"Do not kill yourselves, Allaah is indeed merciful to you." (An-Nisaa' 4-29)

"Do not cast yourselves, with your own hands, into destruction." (Al-Baqarah 2:195)

And the Messenger of Allaah, Sall Allaahu`alayhi wa sallam says:

 

"No harm may be inflicted on oneself or others." (Ahmad and Ibn Majah from Ibn Abbas and Ubadah)

The feet of a human being will not depart, on the day of Judgement, from his standing before his Lord, until he is questioned about five things: his lifetime - how did he pass it, his youth - how did he used it, his wealth - where did he earn it and how did he spend it, and how did he follow what he knew. (At-Tirmithi and others from Ibn Mas'ood and Aboo Barzah)

Whoever consumes poison, killing himself with it, then he will he consuming his poison in the hellfire, and he will abide in it permanently and eternally. (Saheeh Al-Bukhaari and Muslim from Jaabir).
