The authors examined the risk of spontaneous abortion from environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) exposure in a prospective study of over 5,000 women conducted in California during 1990-1991.
Among nonsmokers, there was little association by hours of ETS exposure at home or work (adjusted odds ratio (OR) for any exposure=1.01,95% confidence interval (Cl) 0.80-1.27), or by paternal smoking.
However, the risks associated with ETS exposure were increased among nonsmokers who had moderate alcohol or heavy caffeine consumption.
A moderate association with maternal smoking was observed.
(adjusted OR for >=5 cigarettes per day=1.3,95% Cl 0.91-1.9).
