The authors used ambient concentrations of pollutants from a central monitoring station to estimate the components of air pollution. 5 pollution and sulfate particles between the most polluted and least polluted cities. Lung-cancer mortality was not significantly increased statistically in former and nonsmokers. The American Cancer Society confirmed these findings in a study that monitored 552,138 adults in 151 US metropolitan cities for 6 yr. 5 air pollution was estimated from national databases.
