Despite Lung Cancer, Donna Summer Was NOT A Smoker!

Filed under: R.I.P.Sad SadDonna Summer

Donna Summer no smoker

Donna Summer passed away on Thursday after a 10-month battle with lung cancer, but her family wants the world to know that the Queen of Disco was NOT a smoker!

Her family released a statement that says her cancer "was not related to smoking." In fact, she took very good care of herself.

A source who worked with Summer in 2008 has said:

"She was healthy, she was taking care of herself. She was healthy and energetic when I worked with her."

We probably won't learn too many other details surrounding her cancer and treatment because her family's statement continues:

"Ms. Summer was a non-smoker. Obviously, numerous factors can be attributed to the cause of cancer in general, but any details regarding the diagnosis and subsequent treatment of Ms. Summer's case remain between her family and team of doctors."

Rightfully so! We don't need anymore information because it won't bring her back. All we want to do is remember and honor her legacy!

The world will miss you, Donna! Rest in peace.

About 40,000 people in the U.S. will be diagnosed with oral cancer in 2012.

Fans Challenge One Direction's Zayn To Quit Smoking

Filed under: Music MinuteHealthCancerSmoking

One Direction is pretty huge right now, so that means the paps are never far behind them.

We've seen there are way too many pics of Zayn smoking.

He's a singer and a role model to teens. Neither of those should lead to him smoking — but he does.

Plus smoking ruins your voice, wrinkles your gorgeous face, ruins your teeth and hair and, oh yeah, gives you cancer.

So ForgetTobacco.com has issued a challenge to Zayn:

"Zayn – My organization and the thousands of kids we work with challenge you to publicly quit smoking by July 1st, 2012. We are more than willing to help you kick the habit and make everyone fall in love with you even more."

We think that's a great idea!

So, Zayn, what do you say??

Filed under: Legal MattersSmoking

Tobacco labels

Okay, a few weeks ago we said that the cigarette labels with new gross images on it was ruled unconstitutional because it was the government telling big tobacco to basically scare their customers.

Now, that's not the case!
