Abstract
In a reply to a letter on research published by the authors, they claimed that the effect of second hand smoke on the incidence of lung cancer in truck drivers was negligible. The authors claimed they had data on the smoking habits of subjects' partners which was not included in the original published results and inclusion of this data did not affect their previously published results. The authors conclude that both smoking and nonsmoking long haul drivers who worked after the introduction of diesel fuel were at an increased risk of lung cancer. This is inconsistent with a confounding effect from secondhand smoke exposure.
