PURPOSE: Much of our knowledge regarding the impacts of cigarette smoking on lung function stems from the landmark 1977 article by Fletcher and Peto, which evaluated longitudinal spirometry results in 792 men. Since then, the link between smoking and lung disease has been firmly established. However, few large studies exist, examining the relationship between smoking and pulmonary function in normal individuals.
