Biography

Elizabeth Fontham worked for the Louisiana State University Medical Center, New Orleans, LA. Fontham was the lead author of research published in June of 1994 in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The study, the largest of its kind, found that nonsmoking wives who live with smokers have about a 30% increased chance of developing lung cancer compared with women in tobacco free homes. The study was peer-reviewed by experts in statistics and found to be academically valid before publication. (WSJ 6/7/94).
