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

in adenocarcinoma as a proportion of all lung cancers is much less evident in Australia. This suggests that the difference may be caused by a difference in the cigarettes used in the two countries. One major known difference in cigarettes between the two countries is the lower levels of tobacco specific nitrosamines (a lung specific carcinogen for adenocarcinoma) in Australian cigarettes. The increased risk of adenocarcinoma in the U.S. may be explained by the higher levels of tobacco specific nitrosamines in U.S. cigarettes.

4) These observations strongly support the need for regulation of tobacco, since technology exists to lower nitrosamines in tobacco, and that current lung cancer rates might be reduced by up to 50% through regulatory control of cigarette design and composition.
