Our initial research indicated that health-conscious adults who received a diagnosis of Lung Cancer can be individuals who (i) never-smoked, (ii) are exercisers, (iii) eat a healthy diet, (iv) are from health profession background.
- In a systematic review and meta-analysis study, the researchers investigated the incidence and mortality rates amongst the 'never-smokers' group, by aggregating data from six large cohorts, of which all were conducted in the U.S., with the exception of one study from Sweden. Cohorts included: 1) Nurses’ Health Study, 2) Health Professionals Follow-up Study, 3) California Teachers Study, 4) Multiethnic Cohort Study, 5) Swedish Lung Cancer Register in the Uppsala/Örebro region, and the 6) First National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey Epidemiologic Follow-up Study.
- The study indicated that when pooling the data from the six study cohorts, the age-adjusted incidence rate of lung cancer amongst never-smoker groups (age 40-79 years), ranged from 14.4 to 20.8 per 100,000 person-years in women, and 4.8 to 13.7 per 100,000 person-years in men.
Please note that the purpose of this research strategy document is to: (i) translate the client's questions into addressable research aims; (ii) conduct one-hour preliminary research; (iii) outline the basic facts and statistics related to Lung Cancer incidence in premenopausal women, which shall serve as a groundwork for Wonder researchers; (iv) devise a research strategy based on project scopes.
The information regarding the association between health-conscious adults and lung cancer was not directly available. We identified groups that could be potentially classified as health-conscious adults and directed our research to those groups. We used Google Scholar and PubMed to identify articles, amongst which the afore-cited article demonstrated the most relevance. In-depth research is recommended based on the following research scopes.
