Smoking and Health in the Americas: A 1992 Report of the Surgeon General, in Collaboration with the Pan American Health Organization
Antonia C. Novello (ed); James O. Mason (fr); William L. Roper (fr); Carlyle Guerra de Macedo (pf)
By the mid-1980s, an estimated 526,000 people in the Americas were dying each year of diseases directly attributable to smoking. Most of these deaths occurred in Canada and the U.S. where smoking has been a widespread, entrenched habit for decades. However, approx. 100,000 deaths occurred annually n the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. An epidemic -- like the one in the U.S. -- has been growing among our neighbors. This report looks at the place of smoking in the societies of the Americas and at efforts to prevent and control tobacco use. It is perhaps best viewed as a planning document that will provide the basis for a concerted approach to future prevention strategies. Tables and graphs.
