Letter to The Aegis | November 27, 2012
Editor: November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month. This year, approximately 160,340 Americans are expected to die from lung cancer, accounting for 28 percent of all cancer deaths. That is why there is an entire month dedicated to this disease, raising awareness and increasing research to help put an end to it. People like to think that lung cancer is a self-inflicted disease from smoking. The truth is that radon, second-hand smoke and air pollution all can cause lung cancer.

Dr. Solbert "Sol" Permutt, a retired physiologist and teacher who helped expand the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine's division of pulmonary and critical care medicine, died of esophageal cancer May 23 at Roland Park Place. The longtime Mount Washington resident was 87. "In terms of the lung, it is not an exaggeration to say that most of our current understanding of how blood flows through lung blood vessels and how air flows in and out of the airways can be attributed to Sol," said Dr. David B. Pearse, a Hopkins professor of medicine who lives in Ellicott City.
