The Health Consequences of Smoking: A Reference Edition


Title:
The Health Consequences of Smoking: A Reference Edition
Description:
This reference report contains selected chapters of previous reports to Congress of summations of known health hazards from smoking, i.e., cardiovascular disease, cancer, and respiratory disease. An overview of the 1975 report is followed by chapters on cardiovascular disease; chronic obstructive broncopulmonary disease; cancer; pregnancy; peptic ulcer disease; involuntary smoking; allergy; tobacco amblyopia; pipes and cigars; exercise performance; and harmful constituents of cigarette smoke. The consensus of scientific evidence is that risk of disease is dose-related and reduction of tars and nicotine intake reduces harmful effects.
