Smoking, Health, and Personality

By H. J. Eysenck | Go to book overview

Notes
I.
An excellent introduction to the history of smoking is given by C. van Proosdij in his book Smoking (London, Elsenier, 1960). He also gives detailed references.
2.
Topley and Wilson's Principles of Bacteriology and Immunity, 2, 1141 (Baltimore, Williams and Wilkins, 1955).
3.
A good source of reference for epidemiological methodology is J. Yerushalmy and C. E. Palmer, J. Chronic Diseases, 1959, 10, 27-40.
4.
See J. Yerushalmy, 'Statistical considerations and evaluation of epidemiological evidence', in Tobacco and Health, Ed. G. James and T. Rosenthal (C. C. Thomas, Springfield, Ill., 1962).
5.
L. Kreyberg, Brit. J. Cancer, 1961, 15, 51-3. Also Histological Lung Cancer Types, Norwegian Monographs on Medical Science, I962.
6.
More recent American work has thrown some doubt on the clear-cut nature of the distinction made by Kreyberg.
7.
Detailed references and discussions are contained in Smoking and Health, a report published in 1964 by the US Dept. of Health, Education and Welfare. This will be referred to in this book as the 'American Report'. Since the publication of this report Doll and Hill have published the latest results of their work (Brit. Med. J., 1964, I, 3099-1410, 1460-67). Their main conclusions are most elegantly summarized in the two figures given by them. The first shows the increase in death rate from lung cancer with increase in smoking; the second shows the decrease in death rate from lung cancer in men who had continued smoking and those who had given up smoking cigarettes for varying lengths of time. The great regularity of the data increases one's belief in the reality of the association.
8.
Note also the omission of countries like the USSR, Poland and South Africa; as we shall see later, they do not fall in line with the countries plotted.
9.
For a critical discussion of the statistical issues involved in this
