Indoor air pollution and lung cancer in Guangzhou, People's Republic of China.
A case-control study comprising 224 male and 92 female incident lung cancer cases and the same number of individually matched hospital controls was conducted from June 1983 to June 1984 in Guangzhou, People's Republic of China, to evaluate the association between indoor air pollution and lung cancer risk.
Guangzhou residents were exposed to several sources of pollution in their homes, most importantly to cooking fumes.
Increased risks were found among subjects living in a house without a separate kitchen (the exposure odds ratio was 2.4 (95% confidence interval (Cl) 1.4-4.2) for men and 5.9 (95% Cl 2.1-16.0) for women).
