Scholarcy highlights

  • A case‐control stud/involving interviews with 672 female lung cancer patients and 735 population‐based controls was conducted to investigate the high rates of lung cancer, notably adenocarcinoma, among women in Shanghai
  • The risks of lung cancer were higher among women reporting tuberculosis and other pre‐existing lung diseases
  • Hormonal factors were suggested by an increased risk associated with late menopause and by a gradient in the risk of adenocarcinoma with decreasing menstrual cycle length, with a 3‐fold excess among women who had shorter cycles
  • Perhaps most intriguing were associations found between lung cancer and measures of exposure to cooking oil vapors
  • Risks increased with the numbers of meals cooked by either stir frying, deep frying or boiling; with the frequency of smokiness during cooking; and with the frequency of eye irritation during cooking
