    ..Although cigarette smoking is known to be an important cause of coronary heart disease (CHD) mortality, the relationship between cigar smoking and CHD mortality is unclear...

    ..47). Our results confirm a moderate sized association between a family history of pancreatic cancer and risk of pancreatic cancer and also provide evidence for an association with a family history of prostate cancer worth further study...

    Epidemiology and Surveillance Research, American Cancer Society, Atlanta, GA 30329 4251, USA
    J Natl Cancer Inst 92:1888-96. 2000
    ..Recent studies suggest that long-term cigarette smoking is associated with an increased risk of colorectal cancer. Whether the association is causal or due to confounding remains unclear...
