BACKGROUND The nationwide effects of smoking on mortality in India have not been assessed reliably. METHODS In a nationally representative sample of 1.1 million homes, we compared the prevalence of smoking among 33,000 deceased women and 41,000 deceased men (case subjects) with the prevalence of smoking among 35,000 living women and 43,000 living men (unmatched control subjects). Mortality risk ratios comparing smokers with nonsmokers were adjusted for age, educational level, and use of…

TLDR
Smoking causes about 25% of all deaths in Bangladeshi men aged 25 to 69 years and an average loss of seven years of life per smoker, and smoking-attributable deaths in Bangladesh are likely to increase.
Mortality attributable to smoking in China.
TLDR
It is documents that smoking is a major risk factor for mortality in China and continued strengthening of national programs and initiatives for smoking prevention and cessation is needed to reduce smoking-related deaths in China.
Smoking, smoking cessation, and 7-year mortality in a cohort of Thai adults
TLDR
Current smokers were at a significantly and substantially higher risk of all-cause mortality, especially cardiovascular-related mortality, and promotion of smoking cessation will contribute substantially to the reduction in avoidable mortality in Thailand.
Smoking, drinking and incident tuberculosis in rural India: population-based case-control study.
TLDR
This study of reliably confirmed disease (by the criteria of state TB clinics) demonstrates an increased incidence of pulmonary TB among those who smoke andamong those who drink.
A Prospective Study of Tobacco Smoking and Mortality in Bangladesh
TLDR
Tobacco smoking was responsible for substantial proportion of premature deaths in the Bangladeshi population, especially among men, and Stringent measures of tobacco control and cessation are needed to reduce tobacco-related deaths in Bangladesh.
Smoking and risk of tuberculosis incidence, mortality, and recurrence in South Korean men and women.
The authors explored the association of cigarette smoking with tuberculosis incidence, recurrence, and mortality. A 14-year prospective cohort study (1992-2006) was carried out in 1,294,504 South
Prevalence and risk factors associated with tobacco smoking among adults in India: a nationally representative household survey
TLDR
Age, region, gender, education, religion, marital status, wealth index, number of living persons, and presence of smoking persons were found to be highly significant risk factors for tobacco smoking in India.
Smokeless tobacco use: a meta-analysis of risk and attributable mortality estimates for India.
TLDR
SLT use caused over 350,000 deaths in India in 2010, and nearly three-fifth of SLT use-attributable deaths were among women in India, calling for targeted public health intervention focusing on SLT products especially among women.
21st-century hazards of smoking and benefits of cessation in the United States.
TLDR
Smokers lose at least one decade of life expectancy, as compared with those who have never smoked, and cessation before the age of 40 years reduces the risk of death associated with continued smoking by about 90%.

TLDR
Findings establish bidi smoking as no less hazardous than cigarette smoking and indicate that smokeless tobacco use may also cause higher mortality.

OBJECTIVES We calculated regional and sex- and age-specific smoking prevalence estimates worldwide in 1995. METHODS Sex-specific smoking prevalence data from studies in 139 countries and age
Emerging tobacco hazards in China: 1. Retrospective proportional mortality study of one million deaths
TLDR
At current age specific death rates in smokers and non-smokers one in four smokers would be killed by tobacco, but as the epidemic grows this proportion will roughly double.
Mortality in relation to smoking: 50 years' observations on male British doctors
TLDR
A substantial progressive decrease in the mortality rates among non-smokers over the past half century has been wholly outweighed, among cigarette smokers, by a progressive increase in the smoker νNon-smoker death rate ratio due to earlier and more intensive use of cigarettes.
Tobacco use in India: prevalence and predictors of smoking and chewing in a national cross sectional household survey
TLDR
The findings of the study highlight that an agenda to improve health outcomes among the poor in India must include effective interventions to control tobacco use, and suggest a need for periodical surveys using more consistent definitions of tobacco use and eliciting information on different types of tobacco consumed.

TLDR
This study will reliably document not only the underlying cause of child and adult deaths but also key risk factors (behavioral, physical, environmental, and eventually, genetic) and strengthens India's flagship mortality monitoring system.

TLDR
Smoking among 309 men with incident MI was compared to 618 age matched controls; 56% of the individuals with MI and 26% of controls were current smokers and current smokers had a relative risk of current smokers.
