Adolescents and smoking: evidence from France and Spain

J Adolesc. 1999 Oct;22(5):601-5. doi: 10.1006/jado.1999.0255.


Until recently detailed evidence on smoking and its reduction was found mainly in the U.S.A. and the U.K. Now there is active research in a much wider range of countries which increases the potential for international comparison and international learning. In this paper we focus on the recent evidence now available from France and Spain for the smoking behaviour of adolescents and young people.
