Abstract

This chapter discusses the effects of smoking cessation on lung cancer mortality and on all-cause mortality in Europe and North America, under-estimation of eventual hazards of smoking and benefits of stopping in many studies of other populations, contrasting national trends in tobacco-attributed mortality at ages 35-69, and worldwide trends in smoking.
