BACKGROUND This study compared temporal trends in incidence rates for the major histological types of lung cancer in areas of California (CA), which started a comprehensive state tobacco control program in 1989, and other selected geographic areas for which data on long-term trends were available. METHODS Age-standardized incidence rates (ASIRs) within age 25-64 years, most likely to have been affected by tobacco control programs, were compared for lung-bronchus adenocarcinoma, squamous cell… CONTINUE READING
