WENATCHEE — Fifty years ago, half of the men in the United States smoked cigarettes. But it wasn’t until the American Cancer Society solicited help from 188,000 men across the United States that the link between lung cancer and smoking was developed.

Today, the same organization is launching its third major national study, and this time, researchers hope to find out if the medications you take, the foods you eat, or when in your life you gain weight give you a higher likelihood of developing and dying of cancer.
