A comparison of methods of assessing exposure to environmental tobacco smoke in non-smoking British women.
Fifty-two non-smoking British women were recruited to wear personal monitors for nicotine and volatile organic compounds over a 24-h period in the autumn of 1989.
The subjects also supplied samples of saliva for cotinine analysis, and answered questions regarding lifestyle and exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS).
The research indicates that exposure to ETS in free-living subjects is very low (mean nicotine exposure 2.3 mug m3).
