Studies in Shanghai and in north-east China indicate that cigarette smoking is a major contributor to the high rates of lung cancer in those areas, but doubts persist regarding the influence of cigarette use on lung cancer rates in other areas of China.
In addition, the risk of lung cancer associated with other methods of tobacco consumption-in particular, the use of bamboo water-pipes and long-stem pipes-is uncertain.
A population-based case-control study of 427 male lung cancer patients residing in a mining area of Southern China and 1,011 controls was carried out to address this and other issues.
