Low mortality attributable to tobacco among men in Sweden compared with other European countries: an analysis of WHO data
Lars M. Ramström | 15 February 2014
The ‘WHO Global Report: Mortality Attributable to Tobacco’ has provided estimates of death rates specifically attributable to tobacco. These estimates directly represent the size of each country’s health burden of tobacco, overall and with respect to the different diseases. The current study has extracted data for all European Union Member States and made inter-country comparisons for different age groups and diseases. In these comparisons men in Sweden stand out by exhibiting lower death rates attributable to tobacco than men in any other EU country.
