Nater, B; Gutzwiller, Felix; Abelin, Theodor; Degiampietro, P; Junod, Bernard (1985). Evolution de la consommation de tabac dans 2 villes d'intervention et 2 villes témoins suisses. Revue d'épidémiologie et de santé publique, 33(2):80-89.

Abstract

The National Research Program 1 A on "Primary Prevention of cardiovascular disease in Switzerland' was designed to determine whether community health education can reduce cardiovascular risk factors in the population. Two communities (12,000 inhabitants each) in the French speaking and two (16,000 inhabitants each) in the German speaking part of the country were selected either for intervention or comparison. Following baseline screening in 1977 (stratified random samples) and the community intervention program (1978-1980), a final assessment on the initial participants was performed at the end of 1980. Amongst the regular smokers, 26,2% stopped during this period in the intervention communities whereas 18,1% did so in the reference cities. 4,7% of non-smokers began to smoke during the same period in the intervention communities whereas 7,8% did so in the reference cities. Plasma thiocyanate measurement suggested reliable answers on smoking status. These results suggest that community health education may be effective in preventing harmful health consequence of smoking.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
