Thanks for a great report, Amy. Just to clarify - we take a waist measurement and blood sample, but don't require a physical examination.
Our previous studies have shown the connection between tobacco use and cancer, but we want to learn more about preventing other types of cancer.
For help with quitting smoking, please call 1.800.227.2345 or go to www.cancer.org
