1 The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the effect of environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) on the risk ofpreterm delivery (PD) and small-for-gestational age (SGA) infants in a female non-smoking population of central Poland. 2 The study group were 1751 women classified as non-smokers in the comprehensive project on'Socio-economic and environmental risk factors of preterm delivery and small-for-gestational-age babies in central Poland'conducted on a randomly selected population of 2080 women who gave birth to a child between June 1,1996 and May 31,1997.
The PD group comprised 95 non-smoking women who delivered before 37 weeks of pregnancy and the SGA group included 111 non-smoking mothers of babies with birthweight below the 10th percentile of the standard curves for central Poland.
Passive exposure to tobacco smoke was determined based on a structured interview. 3 In the stepwise multiple logistic regression model maternal passive smoke exposure lasting 7 h or more was found to be a significant risk factor for preterm delivery.
No significant effect of passive smoking on the risk of SGA was observed. 4 The information about the adverse effects of ETS exposure on pregnancy duration and outcome should be incorporated in the health promotion programmes for women.
