OPEN Lancet | 31 Oct 2012
K Pirie, R Peto, GK Reeves, J Green and V Beral
Women born around 1940 in countries such as the UK and USA were the first generation in which many smoked substantial numbers of cigarettes throughout adult life. Hence, only in the 21st century can we observe directly the full effects of prolonged smoking, and of prolonged cessation, on mortality among women in the UK.
