Counter Professor Glantz Stanton A. Glantz, PhD, is Professor of Medicine at the University of California San Francisco where he conducts research on tobacco control and cardiology. He is author or co-author of over 100 scientific papers and 6 books, including this book and Primer of Applied Regression and Analysis of Variance, 2nd ed. (McGraw-Hill, 2001). He wrote the first major review (published in Circulation) which identified involuntary smoking as a cause of heart disease, and the landmark July 19, 1995 issue of JAMA on the Brown and Williamson documents, which showed that the tobacco industry knew 30 years ago that nicotine is addictive and that smoking causes cancer. His work has attracted considerable attention from the tobacco industry, which has sued the University of California twice (unsuccessfully) in an effort to stop Professor Glantz's work.
