A total of 281 male lung-cancer patients were identified from the hospital cancer registry in the Regional Cancer Centre in Trivandrum.

The recruitment of cases and controls started in 1990, and the present study used the cases registered in the first year.
The questionnaire administered to cases and controls collected information on tobacco smoking and alcohol habits.
Dietary data were collected using a food frequency questionnaire and were analyzed by multiple logistic regression producing odds ratio estimates of the relative risk and deviance chi-squared tests of significance.
Analysis was done on the computer package, EGRET.
All models included age, education, religion and smoking to adjust for the effect of confounding.
