Lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in the U.S., but there is hope.

New lung cancer screening guidelines double the number of black Americans and women eligible for screening.

The updated guidelines are also an important step forward in addressing racial disparities associated with lung cancer.

Dr. Victor Waters, a national volunteer medical spokesperson for the American lung association joins Gayle Guyardo the host of the nationally syndicated health and wellness show Bloom about the new guidelines.

Bloom airs in 40 markets across the country, with a reach of approximately 36 million households, and in Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands and Madison, WI.

You can watch Bloom in the Tampa Bay Market weekdays at Noon on WTTA: Spectrum 1006; Frontier 514; DirecTV 38; Dish 38; Comcast 43, and look for Bloom early mornings on WFLA News Channel 8.
