    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    The association between cigarette smoking and bone mineral density was examined prospectively in a population-based study of older Caucasian men and women.

    Methods

    Smoking patterns were determined at a 1972-1974 baseline evaluation and, again, 16 years later when 544 men and 822 women had bone mineral density measurements taken.

    Results

    Men and women who were cigarette smokers at baseline demonstrated significantly reduced bone mineral density of the hip compared with nonsmokers.
