ABSTRACT
The incidence of heavy smokers of Oriental cigarettes among 300 cases of acute coronary thrombosis has been compared to that of non-coronary controls. The calculated risk factor of 1.69 was similar to the risk factor found in Western populations using American blends of tobacco. This similarity, which existed in spite of differences in the chemical components of the cigarettes, is discussed.
