It has been proposed that differences in diet between smokers and nonsmokers may partially explain the positive association between cigarette Smoking and diseases such as cancer and coronary heart disease.
To investigate the potential for this confounding, the authors studied the relation between cigarette smoking and nutrient intake in a population-based sample of 451 Australian women between 1982 and 1984.
Dietary intake was determined by a quantitative food frequency questionnaire.
Relations with smoking were assessed by use of analysis of covariance.
The mean daily intake of total dietary fiber in current smokers was 4.1 g lower than in never smokers, with a 95% confidence interval for the difference of 1.4-6.8 g.
