Abstract
Evaluation of the respiratory function of 846 white male textile workers shows that cigarette smoking interacts with exposure to lint- free cotton dust to increase byssinosis prevalence and severity, and appears to increase the deleterious effect of cotton dust on 4 ventilatory capacity measures. Data are given regarding the correlation between the byssinosis risk, and the exposure gradient, sex, age, and smoking habits of the workers.
