  1. Fulltext. Passive smoking, active smoking, and education : Their relationship to weight history in women in Geneva.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study was undertaken to determine the relationship of education and tobacco smoke to lifetime weight history in women.

    Methods

    Information on passive smoking, active smoking, and weight history was collected from 928 women aged 28 to 74 years selected from the general population of Geneva, Switzerland.

    Multivariate analysis of variance was performed for weight, weight at age 20, and weight change since age 20.

    Results

    Education was inversely related to weight at age 20, current weight, and weight gain since age 20.

    The least educated group had a current weight of 4 kg more than the most educated group.

    Differences across smokers categories were small : passive smokers had the highest current weight (63.4 kg) and former active smokers had the lowest (60.4 kg).

    Weight gain since age 20 tended to be smaller in former and current activve smokers (5.5 to 7.2 kg) than in passive smokers (8.3 to 10.4 kg) and those nerver exposed (9.1 kg).

    Conclusions

    In this sample, education was an important predictor of women's current weight and weight history.

    Passive and active smoking had little long-term effect on weight.
