Lee Table 3. 2% Table 4. 01% and active smokers based on particulate matter would be more relevant. Table 4, based on Arundel et aJ. (1986), gives estimates for the US population of relative inhaled and retained particulate matter doses of non-smokers and active smokers. The ratios in Table 4 have to be adjusted upwards by a factor of 2 or 3 to make them comparable with the data in Tables 2 and 3, since (see Table 3) the difference between exposed and nonexposed non-smokers is two to three times the average level of non-smokers.

It does not seem likely that failure to take confounding factors into account has materially affected the issue. Inappropriate Choice of Controls General scientific principles demand that like should be compared with like as far as possible. In a number of studies, there were clear exceptions to this. One example is the study ofTrichopoulos et al. (1981, 1984) in which controls came from a different hospital. This may cause bias if patients came from different catchment areas with different smoking characteristics.
