According to the Surgeon General, "...In 1959, the Public Health Service assessed the then available evidence linking smoking with health and made its findings known to the professions and the public. The Service's review of the evidece and its statement at that time was largely focused on the relationship of cigarette smoking to lung cancer. Since 1959 much additional data has accumulated on the whole subject...Accordingly, I appointed a committee, drawm from all the pertinent scientific diciplines, to review and evaluate both this new and older data and, if possible, to reach some difinitive conclusions on the relationship between smoking and health in general. The results of the Committee's study and evaluation are contained in this report..." Some of the topics covered: conduct of the study, criteria, summaries and conclusions; evidence of the relationship of smoking to health (consumption in the US, characteristics of tobacco and tobacco smoke, pharmacology and toxicology of nicotine, respitory diseases,pyscho-social aspects of smoking, morphological constitution of smokers).
