Brendan's First Post.

Hello this is my first post.  My name is Brendan Burke and I am a junior Biology major.  I am very interested in this cancer biology class because of the impact cancer has had on the people surrounding my life.  Embedded in my blog below is a figure that shows death rates for lung cancer among different age groups.  Death rates for cancer are highest among middle aged and older populations.  This is the first leading cause of cancer death in the United States.
I found this graph from the National Cancer Institute website.
