The Nation

July 11, 1986

Two new studies reached opposite conclusions on whether the health of nonsmokers can be damaged by others' cigarette smoke. A British study, by a team at the Institute for Cancer Research, said it is difficult to determine whether tobacco smoke causes lung cancer among nonsmokers because relatively few nonsmokers get lung cancer. In sharp disagreement was a report by retired Du Pont Co. research executive Judson Wells, who analyzed eight existing studies and concluded that up to 46,000 deaths a year are caused by other people's cigarette smoke.
