14. Indiana: Lung Cancer
In 2020, Indiana ranked as one of the worst states for lung cancer. The American Lung Association’s “State of Lung Cancer” report found that the Hoosier state has some of the highest reported cases of lung cancer in the nation.

“While we celebrate that more Americans are surviving lung cancer, too many people are being left behind, and the disease still remains the leading cause of cancer deaths,” Nick Torres, the advocacy director for American Lung Association Indiana, told Fox 59. “Much more can and must be done in Indiana to prevent the disease and support those facing it. Indiana has the lowest cigarette tax in the region, and some of the cheapest tobacco products in the country."
