BACKGROUND Bias is a major methodological issue for epidemiology. However, only a few studies have been dedicated to the past and present formulations of the concept of bias. Moreover, the classical definition of bias as systematic deviation from the truth of results or inferences, definition which can be found in dictionaries of epidemiology, does not seem to either match the way epidemiologists use it in practice, or correspond to the different definitions given throughout its history. It is c...

INTRODUCTION Studies have shown the health benefits of cigarette smoking cessation. However, the literature remains unclear about the relationship between smoking reduction and health risks. This comprehensive review and meta-analysis updates previous reviews with the newest estimates. AIMS AND METHODS We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis evaluating the association between smoking reduction and some health risks in observational studies. We defined the following smoking categories:...

Abstract Smokers are exposed to the harmful and potentially harmful constituents generated by cigarette combustion. Discriminating the independent effects of nicotine from those of other chemicals present in cigarette smoke is difficult. Nevertheless, investigating circumstances in which individuals are exposed to nicotine without combustion—as with the use of smokeless tobacco products, nicotine replacement therapies, and, to some extent, e-vapor products—provides evidence on the possible healt...

This review considers various aspects of the temporality causation criterion and the corresponding confounders within the framework of temporal bias, including facts for radiation epidemiology. It is noted that this guideline is the only criterion in all sets of rules for assessing causation for nonexperimental (observational) disciplines, since falsification of it immediately eliminates the likelihood of causation. The exact terminology of the criterion, its philosophical essence, going back to...

Structured Abstract Objective Lung cancer is traditionally more prevalent in the elderly, males, and smokers. However, as low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) is increasingly popular, we hypothesized the disease spectrum might change. Methods LDCT was performed as a part of regular health examinations in 8,392 out of 15,686 employees from six hospitals in different regions of China in 2012-2018. Clinicopathologic characteristics including age, gender, smoking status, radiological features, tumor ...

In this paper we have attempted to identify missed opportunities to change the trajectory of smoking and smoking caused diseases in America over the past 100 years. Many of the missed opportunities identified are due to the actions of cigarette manufacturers who misled the public about the dangers of cigarette smoking, the addictiveness of nicotine, and the feasibility of providing lower risk alternative nicotine delivery products to addicted smokers. An important lesson learned from the past is...

OBJECTIVE Most American adults fail to achieve recommended levels of physical activity and, as a result, are at elevated risk for many chronic diseases. Affective processes have been validated as targets for increasing physical activity but are rarely targeted directly by behavioral interventions. This article describes 2 early phase studies used to develop HeartPhone, a smartphone application for conditioning associations between physical activity and pleasure. HeartPhone exposes users to brief...
