We have previously shown that the inverse social gradient in risk of ischaemic heart disease (IHD) was not explained by self-reported smoking habits.
We pursued the issue in a follow-up study 15 years later, where use of tobacco was validated by serum cotinine.
Some 3216 men aged 53-75 years were included in a study on the association between self-reported tobacco use and serum cotinine concentration.
The men had their morbidity and mortality recorded over 4 years.
Some 2833 men without overt cardiovascular disease were included in the incidence study.
Potential confounders examined were serum lipids, serum selenium, alcohol consumption, physical activity, hypertension, blood pressure, and body mass index.
