About German scientists' studies of tobacco and health before WWII[edit]

In the 1920s there were already several German studies proving a link between first-hand smoke and lung cancer, yet the article does not mention it (see [1]), only mentioning that in the 1930s German scientists discovered this link, which is misleading.--RekishiEJ (talk) 05:54, 6 November 2014 (UTC)

The paper which you cite says "In the 1920s, several German studies suggested a link", which is rather different from proving a link. I've amended the lead and added a ref cited by the paper you cited. Qwfp (talk) 22:55, 6 November 2014 (UTC)
