"Under the pilot programs" Brown reported, "some 200 children were referred for diagnosis in each county during a two-year period." Many of these cases were so severe, he said, that children experienced daily siezures. "After treatment, three-fifths of the children in the program became free of seizures and another one-fifth were substantially improved," the Governor noted.

The Loma Linda research scientist stated that the Surgeon General's study was "not a casual operation" but was carried out in "great detail and great depth." He said the report was released at a time when "we are in the midst of an epedemic of lung cancer like none we have ever had in history." 6,000 Reports More than 6,000 separate sci-j[ un „ entific reports on smoking and health were available to the 10- membcr team which prepared the governmcnt analysis. The team selected 1.100 of the studies as reference material — 400 of these dealt specifically with cancer. Dr. Lemon asserted that the special report went beyond showing a relationship between smoking and lung cancer. "It demonstrated that cigarette smoking actually causes cancer," he said. More Than Statistical "The lines of evidence were far more than statistical," he noted, "the case against smoking includes chemical, biological and physiological evidence." "A chemical analysis of the tars taken from cigarette smoke showed the tars contained irritative substances that can cause cancer. "When these tars were painted on the throat tissues of live an- tion had normal tissue structure, while early developing cancers and abnormal tissue structure were found in heavy smokers. "In any study ever made thc trend has always been the same. The heaviest smokers are always in the lung cancer group and the lightest smokers are in the non-lung cancer group. "And from the quantitative viewpoint, the lung cancer group always has the most smokers and the non-lung cancer group always has the least number of smokers," Dr. Lemon pointed out. Heavy Smokers He maintained that no study has ever s h o w n that heavy- smokers face less than a 2.500 per cent greater risk of having cancer than a nonsmoker. He described a heavy smoker as a person who smokes two or more packs a day. Defending the statistical evidence. Dr. Lemon pointed out that the use of polio vaccines was based for the most part on statistics indicating it would reduce the crippling disease. "Also, it was shown statistically that Thalidomide was dangerous to pregnant women. No one ever proved scientifically that the drug caused mutation of unborn infants," he noted. Dr Lemon stressed that the question of smoking and health had been dealt with lightly. "The evidence is voluminous and consistent . . . like nothing I've seen before," he concluded.
