popcorn workers, we controlled for possible confounding eff ects of smoking, age, and gender. In one of these two studies, we investigated whether exhaled nitric oxide (FE NO ) levels were associated with exposure, respiratory symptoms, or airways obstruction (Akpinar-Elci et al. 2006). A questionnaire, spirometry, and FE NO measurements were completed by 135 workers — 52.6% of whom were nonsmokers. Workers, who were current smokers, had signifi cantly lower FE NO levels when compared with… Expand
