RUIZ-JUAN, Francisco; ISORNA-FOLGAR, Manuel; RUIZ-RISUENO, Jorge  and  VAQUERO-CRISTOBAL, Raquel. Tobacco consumption among adults in monterrey: relation to exercise regularly and family. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.2, pp.808-816. ISSN 1699-5198.

Objective: determine the relationship among tobacco consumption, physical activity, sociodemographic variables and family behaviours in Mexican adults. Methods: 978 Mexican adults (483 males and 495 females) were interviewed by a random routes questionnaire. Multinomial logistic regression was used to calculate odds ratio (OR) and confidence interval (CI = 95%). Results: men have a high risk factor of tobacco comsumption in frequency and/or amount. 18 to 45 years-old is the age range with high probability of tobacco comsumption, while the more age, the less comsumption. The tobacco consumption risk is significantly low in people who have less that a primary education. Participants who have never done physical exercise have a low possibility of tobacco consumption, while the consumption is high in the group of people who have abandoned physical activity. The family context is a risk factor of tobacco consumption in frequency. About alcohol consumption, it was found that people who drink alcohol have a high probability of smoke. Conclusions: tobacco consumption at high frequencies and amounts and physical activity are inversely relationship. It has been also detected a direct relationship between the frequency and the amount of tobacco and alcohol consumptions; and between the frequency and the amount of tobacco consumption and the family in the tobacco consumption.
