New Study Indicates Changes in Cigarette Design Have Increased Lung Cancer Risk and Tobacco Regulation Can Greatly Reduce Lung Cancer
Date:5/1/2009

such as the reduction or elimination of harmful chemicals. The bill would also require tobacco companies to disclose the contents of their products, research about their products and changes to their products. They could no longer secretly change their products. The bill would also crack down on tobacco marketing and sales to kids, require bigger and stronger health warnings, strictly regulate health claims about tobacco products and take other steps to protect public health. These regulations would be funded by a user fee paid by tobacco companies.

The House of Representatives approved this legislation on April 2 by a strong, bipartisan vote of 298 to 112. The new study makes it even more urgent that the Senate quickly take up and pass this long-overdue legislation and resist all efforts to weaken it. President Obama has expressed his strong support for the legislation.

For the study, researchers examined lung cancer rates as well as changes in the design and smoke composition of cigarettes in the United States over the past four decades and then compared U.S. and Australian lung cancer rates over time. From this analysis, the researchers reached four major conclusions:

1) The study provides new evidence that among U.S. smokers the risk of developing lung cancer has progressively increased over the past four decades, controlling for amount and duration of smoking.

2) This increase in the risk of lung cancer among smokers coincides with a change in cigarette design over the past five decades. The study suggests that up to one half of current lung cancer occurrence may be attributable to changes in cigarette design.

3) This increase in risk of smoking over time is not evident for squamous cell carcinoma (one type of lung cancer) of the lung and is driven largely by changes in the risk of adenocarcinoma (another type of lung cancer). The increase
