How tobacco smoke causes disease : the biology and behavioral basis for smoking-attributable disease : a report of the Surgeon General( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report considers the biological and behavioral mechanisms that may underlie the pathogenicity of tobacco smoke. Many Surgeon General's reports have considered research findings on mechanisms in assessing the biological plausibility of associations observed in epidemiologic studies. Mechanisms of disease are important because they may provide plausibility, which is one of the guideline criteria for assessing evidence on causation. This report specifically reviews the evidence on the potential mechanisms by which smoking causes diseases and considers whether a mechanism is likely to be operative in the production of human disease by tobacco smoke. This evidence is relevant to understanding how smoking causes disease, to identifying those who may be particularly susceptible, and to assessing the potential risks of tobacco products

The health consequences of involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke : a report of the Surgeon General( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 749 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This Surgeon General's report returns to the topic of the health effects of involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke. The last comprehensive review of this evidence by the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) was in the 1986 Surgeon General's report, The Health Consequences of Involuntary Smoking, published 20 years ago this year. This new report updates the evidence of the harmful effects of involuntary exposure to tobacco smoke. This large body of research findings is captured in an accompanying dynamic database that profiles key epidemiologic findings, and allows the evidence on health effects of exposure to tobacco smoke to be synthesized and updated (following the format of the 2004 report, The Health Consequences of Smoking). The database enables users to explore the data and studies supporting the conclusions in the report. The database is available on the Web site of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) at http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco

Physical activity and health : a report of the Surgeon General by United States( )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 509 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The informatin in this report summarizes the existing literature on the role of physical activity in preventing disease and on the status of interventions to increase physical activity, focusing on endurance-type physical activity. School-based interventions have been shown to be successful in increasing physical activity levels. With evidence that success in this arena is possible, every effort should be made to encourage schools to require daily physical education in each grade and to promote physical activities that can be enjoyed throughout life. A major conclusion of this report, though, is that daily enrollment in physical education classes has declined among high school students from 42 percent to 25 percent in 1995. Chapter 1 introduces and summarizes the report and presents the conclusions from each chapter. Chapter 2 offers a historical perspective, outlining the history of belief and knowledge about physical activity and health; then it reviews the evolution and content of physical activity recommendations. Chapter 3 describes the physiological responses to physical activity--both the immediate effects of a single episode of activity and long-term adaptations to a regular pattern of activity. Chapter 4 presents the evidence that physical activity reduces the risk of cardiovascular and other diseases. Data on patterns and trends of physical activity in the U.S. population are the focus of chapter 5. Lastly, chapter 6 examines efforts to increase physical activity and reviews ideas currently being proposed for policy and environmental initiatives. Each chapter contains references. (Nd)

Bone health and osteoporosis : a report of the Surgeon General( Book )

4 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first report of the Surgeon General on bone health and osteoporosis, which was requested by Congress, comes at a critical time. Tremendous progress has been made in bone health in the last several decades, particularly in the past 15 years. Research has accelerated markedly, enabling the medical community to develop a much more detailed understanding of the factors that promote bone health and cause bone disease and fractures. This enhanced level of knowledge has led to significant advances in the ability to prevent, assess risk factors for, diagnose, and treat bone disease
The health consequences of smoking--50 years of progress : a report of the surgeon general by United States( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fifty years have passed since publication of the landmark report of the Surgeon General's Advisory Committee on smoking and health. This report highlights both the dramatic progress our nation has made reducing tobacco use and the continuing burden of disease and death caused by smoking. The prevalence of current cigarette smoking among adults has declined from 42% in 1965 to 18% in 2012. However, more than 42 million Americans still smoke. Tobacco has killed more than 20 million people prematurely since the first Surgeon General's report in 1964. The findings in this report show that the decline in the prevalence of smoking has slowed in recent years and that burden of smoking-attributable mortality is expected to remain at high and unacceptable levels for decades to come unless urgent action is taken. In 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) launched the first-ever paid national tobacco education campaign --Tips From Former Smokers (Tips) -- to raise awareness of the harms to health caused by smoking, encourage smokers to quit, and encourage nonsmokers to protect themselves and their families from exposure to secondhand smoke. While we have made tremendous progress over the past 50 years, sustained and comprehensive efforts are needed to prevent more people from having to suffer the pain, disability, disfigurement, and death that smoking causes. Most Americans who have ever smoked have already quit, and most smokers who still smoke want to quit. If we continue to implement tobacco prevention and cessation strategies that have proven effective in reducing tobacco use, people throughout our country will live longer, healthier, more productive lives
