I'd be interested in where the statement about who inhaled had less lung cancer came from. I don't see it in the stude cited.
SORRY for the confusion - it was NOT the "Doctors Study" - but the study they were in the middle of when they were "Devising" the doctors study - finished in late 1950 - found here http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2...
and here are the statements:
"It would appear that lung-carcinoma patients
inhale slightly less often than other patients (X2 =4.58;
n=1; 0.02<P<0.05). However, the difference is not
large, and if the lung-carcinoma patients are compared
with all the other patients interviewed, and the necessary
allowance is made for sex and age, the difference becomes
insignificant (X2=.Il9; n=1; 0.50<P<0.70)."
(Yep!- just a LITTLE manipulation ALWAYS makes those figures fall into place!)
"and 19 out of 60 women with
carcinoma of the lung were non-smokers."
Also, the study is of MALE doctors, so there aren't any women in the study
YES there WERE Women in the "Doctors Study" better read it closer!
In October 1951, the researchers wrote to all registered physicians in the United Kingdom, and obtained responses in two-thirds, 40,564 of them. 10,017 however related to men under the age of 35, and 6,158 to women of ALL AGES!
But they reasoned that Lung cancer is relatively uncommon in women - and rarely stikes under 35 so they only PUBLISHED data for 24,389 Males - Their LOGIC here seems REAL 'Fuzzy" - because in the study he concluded just the year befor he saw that almost 10% of Lung Cancer patients were women!
Gee - I wonder how THOSE OMMISSIONS could have "Skewed" the data??
Interesting Side Note here: of the 24,389 originals there were
148 SMOKERS that were 85 and older!
and ONLY 29 NON SMOKERS that age
ALSO there were 1,226 SMOKERS ages 74-84 - and only 164 NONSMOKERS in that bracket!
Average Life span in 1950 in the UK was 65 years - But these were Doctors - with Health care readily available - so lets give them 72 years!
So at the START of the study - 5.5% of the participants had already reached a POST MATURE age!(But those "SMOKERS who died - were CONSTANTLY refered to as "PREMATURE")
BTW - in 1950 82% of all men in the UK smoked - about 40% of all women
MAN!-according to the LIES OF THE ANTI's - with THAT MUCH SMOKING AND SHS going on - the UK SHOULDN'T EVEN EXIST right now!!!!
