Alpharetta, Ga. (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
On Thursday, Nov. 21, ANY LAB TEST NOW® will participate in The Great American Smokeout, sponsored by the American Cancer Society, to encourage smokers across the country to quit. The company, which is the first direct access lab testing services business with more than 150 franchise locations across the U.S., is asking smokers to quit for just one day or use this event as an opportunity to make a game plan and quit all together.
“This is such a great opportunity to encourage your co-workers, friends or loved ones who are battling with tobacco addiction to make proactive steps toward quitting,” said Clarissa Bradstock, COO And Acting CEO of ANY LAB TEST NOW®. “We feel it’s our duty to participate in such events and continue to support those who have quit and those who are trying to quit smoking.”
According to the American Cancer Society, tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the U.S., yet approximately 43.8 million Americans still smoke cigarettes.
Smokers are not only at risk for disease and possibly death, but also financial strain. Cigarettes are increasingly more expensive: At today’s prices, if you smoke one pack of cigarettes a day for 10 years, you’ll spend more than $58,000. Additionally, smokers pay a higher insurance premium than their non-smoker counterparts. The Affordable Care Act allows insurance companies to charge tobacco users up to 50 percent more for their monthly premiums.
For parents, friends and employers who are concerned about the smokers in their life, ANY LAB TEST NOW® offers a Cotinine Urine Drug Test that will detect usage of tobacco products within the past three days.
