BACKGROUND Cigar consumption in the United States has increased dramatically since 1993, yet there are limited prospective data on the risk of cancer associated with cigar smoking. We examined the association between cigar smoking and death from tobacco-related cancers in a large, prospective cohort of U. S. men. METHODS We used Cox proportional hazards models to analyze the relationship between cigar smoking at baseline in 1982 and mortality from cancers of the lung, oral cavity/pharynx…

Re: Cigar smoking in men and risk of death from tobacco-related cancers.
TLDR
These results strongly implicate the tobacco-specific nitrosamine 4-(methylnitrosamino)-1-(3-pyridyl)-1-butanone (NNK) as the cause of lung cancer in these noninhaling cigar smokers, demonstrating the importance of NNK as a human lung carcinogen.
Mortality among male cigar and cigarette smokers in the USA
TLDR
This study provides evidence that male cigar smokers age 40 + years had elevated mortality risks, however, after accounting for cigarette smoking and other confounding variables, it is found significantly increased mortality only among dual and former users of cigarettes.
Association between exclusive pipe smoking and mortality from cancer and other diseases.
TLDR
Results from this large prospective study suggest that pipe smoking confers a risk of tobacco-associated disease similar to cigar smoking.
Active and Passive Smoking and the Risk of Pancreatic Cancer in the Netherlands Cohort Study
TLDR
It is confirmed that cigarette smoking is an important risk factor for pancreatic cancer, whereas quitting smoking reduced risk and approached unity after ≥20 years of quitting.
Systematic review of cigar smoking and all cause and smoking related mortality
TLDR
A systematic review of published studies on current cigar smoking and all-cause and cause-specific mortality risks to inform potential regulatory approaches and future research that would strengthen the body of evidence found cigar smoking carries many of the same health risks as cigarette smoking.
Cigar and pipe smoking and cancer risk in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC)
TLDR
Cigar and pipe smoking is not a safe alternative to cigarette smoking, and the lower cancer risk of cigar and pipe smokers as compared to cigarette smokers is explained by lesser degree of inhalation and lower smoking intensity.
Cigarette smoking, elevated fasting serum glucose, and risk of pancreatic cancer in Korean men
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cigarette smoking and elevated fasting serum glucose are independently associated with an increased risk of pancreatic cancer in a large cohort of Korean males.
Smokeless and Other Noncigarette Tobacco Use and Pancreatic Cancer
TLDR
It is suggested that heavy use of smokeless tobacco, and to a lesser extent, cigar smoking may increase the risk of pancreatic cancer among nonsmokers of cigarettes.
Association of Cigarette, Cigar, and Pipe Use With Mortality Risk in the US Population
TLDR
This study provides further evidence that exclusive use of cigar, pipes, and cigarettes each confers significant mortality risks and indicates that never tobacco users have higher all-cause mortality risks than current and former tobacco users.
A prospective cohort study of cigarette smoking and pancreatic cancer in Japan
TLDR
Cigarette smoking was associated with an increased risk of death from pancreatic cancer and a significantly decreasing trend in risk with increasing years after smoking cessation was observed.

Cigar and pipe smoking and lung cancer risk: a multicenter study from Europe.
TLDR
The results suggest that smoking of European cigars, cigarillos, and pipe tobacco might exert a carcinogenic effect on the lung comparable to that of cigarettes.
Effect of cigar smoking on the risk of cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and cancer in men.
TLDR
Independently of other risk factors, regular cigar smoking can increase the risk of coronary heart disease, COPD, and cancers of the upper aerodigestive tract and lung.
Mortality in relation to cigarette and pipe smoking: 16 years' observation of 25,000 Swedish men.
TLDR
There was a close to linear increase in lung cancer risk in relation to the amount of tobacco smoked for cigarette, pipe, and cigar smokers, respectively and an increasing risk of ischaemic heart disease with amount smoked was seen among both cigarette and pipe smokers.
Smoking habits and tar levels in a new American Cancer Society prospective study of 1.2 million men and women.
TLDR
The study population differed in many respects from the general U.S. population; the study population had, for example, a much higher average educational level, Nevertheless, distributions of smoking habits changed a few percentage points after adjustment to the educational level of the general population.
Risk factors for fatal colon cancer in a large prospective study.
TLDR
Recommendations that increased consumption of vegetables and grains may reduce the risk of fatal colon cancer are supported, and regular use of low doses of aspirin may prove to be an important supplemental measure.
Excess mortality among cigarette smokers: changes in a 20-year interval.
TLDR
Premature mortality doubled in women and continued unabated in men from the 1960s to the 1980s and Lung cancer surpassed coronary heart disease as the largest single contributor to smoking-attributable death among White middle-class smokers.
Smoking and causes of death among U.S. veterans: 16 years of observation.
TLDR
In a 16-year mortality followup of some 293,000 insured U.S. veterans, specific causes of death were studied in relation to smoking status and Parkinson's disease remained the one disease that clearly exhibited a negative association with cigarette smoking.

TLDR
The results of the analysis indicate that the prevalence of current cigarette smoking among U.S. high school students increased from 27.5% in 1991 to 36.4% in 1997 and that, in 1997, 42.7% of students used cigarettes, smokeless tobacco, or cigars during the 30 days preceding the survey.
