EFFETS DU TABAGISME SUR LA SANTE PUBLIQUE

Ä partir des années cinquante, des études scientifiques ont démontré la nocivité du tabac, et l’ont mise en évidence comme un important facteur de risque dans la survenue de cancers, en particulier du cancer des poumons et des bronches. La mortalité des hommes d’une quarantaine d’années est deux fois plus importante chez les fumeurs que chez les non-fumeurs. Les experts estiment que 30 personnes sur 100 de la mortalité due au cancer sont imputables au tabac. Le principal cancer lié au tabagisme est le cancer du poumon, responsable à lui seul de plus de plus 20.000 morts par an. Ainsi, un fumeur aura sept fois plus de risque d’apparition de cancers du larynx, de la cavité buccale et de l’œsophage est cinq fois plus élevé dans cette catégorie de la population. Enfin, un tiers environ des cancers de la vessie, des reins et du pancréas est dû à la consommation de tabac. En outre, le tabagisme multiplie par cinq le risque d’apparition de bronchite chronique et d’emphysème, et par deux le risque de mourir d’une affection coronarienne. Une étude effectuée en 1988, portant sur 4.256 individus suivis pendant vingt-six ans, a montré que le risque d’accident cardiaque augmentait de 50 personnes sur 100 chez les fumeurs, 40 personnes sur 100 chez les hommes et 60 personnes sur 100 chez les femmes. D’autres expériences ont prouvé que les mères fumeuses donnaient plus fréquemment naissances à des enfants prématurés ou petits, probablement en raison du ralentissement du flux sanguin dans le placenta. Trois études dont les résultats furent publiés en 1981 ont indiqué que chez les femmes non- fumeurs dont les maris fument, le risque de survenue de cancer du poumon est accru. Il en est de même chez les enfants non-fumeurs dont les parents fument. dont les parents fument. Les effets du tabagisme passif ont été dénoncés en 1984. merci

Effect of tobacco addiction on public health

Since fifty years ago, scientific studies have demonstrated the harmful effects of tobacco, and have highlighted as an important risk factor in the onset of cancer, particularly lung cancer and bronchus cancer. Mortality of men in their forties is two times higher for smokers than that for non-smokers. Experts estimate that 30 over 100 mortality is attributable to tobacco. The main tobacco-related cancer is lung cancer, which alone accounts for over 20,000 deaths each year. Thus, a smoker has risk seven times more of developing larynx cancer, oral cavity and esophagus happens five times higher for smokers than for non-smokers. Finally, about one third of bladder cancers, kidney and pancreas cancers is due to the consumption of tobacco, In addition, smoking increases the risk of developing chronic bronchitis and emphysema by five-fold, and doubles the risk of dying from coronary disease. A study conducted in 1988, which studied 4256 individuals for 26 years, showed that the risk of heart attack increased by 50 persons out of 100 smokers, 40 out of 100 for men, and 60 out of 100 for women. Other experiments have proved that mothers who smoke more frequently give birth to premature babies or small, probably due to slow blood flow in the placenta. These studies whose results were published in 1981 indicated that among non-smoking women whose husband smoke, the risk of developing lung cancer is increased. It is the same in non-smoking children whose parents smoke. The effects of passive smoking were reported in 1984. Thank you.
