May 24th 2006 saw the publication of “Risk Factors for Lung Cancer in Iowa Women: Implications for Prevention” by Dr. John Neuberger covering a large range possible causes. What did it say on passive smoking?

“A significant inverse association was found for those with some college education (OR=0.63, 95% CI=0.48-0.81) and for those with adult passive smoke exposure at home (OR=0.37, 95% CI=0.26-0.54). ”
