      Main outcome measures Women-to-men prevalence ratios in smoking status, and the women-minus-men mean difference in age at smoking initiation, number of cigarettes smoked daily and age at smoking cessation in 5-year birth cohort bands. Results The women-to-men ever-smoking ratio ranged from in the oldest to in the youngest birth by:   Discussion. Using state-level data on smoking behaviors and mortality outcomes, we observed similar declines in the prevalence of smoking and prostate cancer mortality rates among adult men in 4.

In the late s women had lower smoking mortality rates than men, causing some to believe that perhaps women were not as affected by the harms of tobacco. Mortality rates increased substantially with increasing intensity of smoking, with rates approximately doubling in those smoking around 10 cigarettes per day and four- to five-fold those of never-smokers in current smokers of 25 or more cigarettes per by: Smoking and mortality among older men and women in three communities.

Cigarettes with lower machine measured “tar” and nicotine yields have been marketed as “safer” than high tar products over the last four decades, but there is conflicting evidence about the impact of these products on the disease burden caused by smoking.

This paper critically examines the epidemiological evidence relevant to the health consequences of “reduced yield” by: Abstract. Cigarette smoking is the largest preventable risk factor for morbidity and mortality in developed countries. Dramatic changes in the prevalence of cigarette smoking in the second half of this century in the United States (i.e., a reduction among men and an increase among women) have reduced current smoking levels to approximately one quarter of the adult.
