This is a review of evidence relating exposure to environmental tobacco smoke to mortality in adults who have never smoked, concluding that no adverse effect has been demonstrated. The design, key findings, strengths and weaknesses of 53 epidemiological studies providing evidence are discussed and the data on cancer, heart disease and other diseases as well as the overall risk of mortality are analyzed. A major part of the book consists of a critical evaluation of the lung cancer data from 29 relevant studies followed by an interpretation of the evidence in the light of all potential sources of bias.
