The scientific data on smoking are among the most extensive, consistent and wide- ranging to be found anywhere. It is difficult to teach epidemiology without using smoking as an example, since few factors are as consistent and forceful in their effects. Moreover, it is a risk factor that often meets the criteria of causality, as in the case of lung cancer.
