Its Relation to Cancer


SYDNEY. Tuesday.

Addressing the N.S.W. Institute of Stock Inspectors' conference today the State Abattoir Pathologist (Mr. J. Dribble) advanced reasons for the claim that smoking played a big part in cancer among men. He said that in a total of 32,877 males and 30,271 females there were 12.8 men suffering from cancer of the mouth and only 1.3 women.

Mr. Dribble said that Dr. Cumston, Commonwealth Medical Officer, stated in 1926 that if the death rate of cancer for that year was maintained, in ten years 500,000 Australians would have died.
