In this study, the relationship between calcium and other minerals with the risk of lung cancer in non-smokers was studied. For this purpose 71,267 female non-smokers, not suffering from cancer, were interviewed using a questionnaire on their dietary habits. After an average period of 11.2 years the surveyed group was re-examined. The results show that an increased calcium intake plays an important role in the prevention of lung cancer.
