A hospital-based case-control study of oesophageal cancer was carried out in the Heilongjiang Province, a low-risk area for oesophageal cancer in China.
From May 1985 to May 1989, 196 histologically confirmed cases and 392 controls with other (non-neoplastic) diseases were personally interviewed in the wards of 5 major hospitals.
Information was obtained about usual consumption in the early 1980s of 32 major contributors to the diet in the province, socio-demographic status, smoking and alcohol consumption.
Odds ratios (OR) were obtained from logistic regression models, and confounding was controlled by means of multivariate models.
Smoking and alcohol consumption were major risk factors for oesophageal cancer in this population.
Smokers of handmade cigarettes exhibited a particularly high risk.
