The importance of smoking cessation as part of lung cancer control measures in Japan.

Abstract

A study of annual trends in the number of deaths and mortality rate in Japan found that lung cancer is one of the most frequent causes of death (1). Lung cancer is clearly associated with cigarette smoking (2). Thus, this paper reviews reports on the importance of measures to stop smoking as part of lung cancer control measures in Japan and it discusses how these findings can be linked to more specific preventive measures.
