Smoking in Tutong, Brunei: A changing habit

A. A. Woodcock

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    Of 765 people aged over 14 yr, living in Tutong, in the State of Brunei, 208 (27.2%) were regular cigarette smokers. In the over-50 age group, 68.5% were smokers, of whom just over half smoked locally produced cigarettes containing sun-cured tobacco. In the under-30 age group, only 15.3% were smokers, but almost all of them (93.9%) smoked commercially produced flue-cured cigarettes. The relationships of smoking habits and frequency of disease are studied and the possible effects on future health of increased sales of flue-cured tobaccos in South-east Asia are discussed.
