Acculturation Differentially Predicts Smoking Cessation Among Latino Men and Women

Wednesday, March 31, 2010  
Castro Y, Reitzel LR, Businelle MS, Kendzor DE, Mazas CA, Li Y, Cofta-Woerpel L, Wetter DW. Cancer Epidemiol Biomarkers Prev. 2009 Dec;18(12):3468-75.

This study looked at the influence of gender and acculturation on smoking cessation among Latinos seeking cessation counseling. The findings indicated that greater acculturation (more years lived in the US, greater proportion of life lived in the US, and preferred media language of English) predicted higher abstinence rates, but only for men. The authors point to the need for research focused on mechanisms underlying the relationships between gender and acculturation on tobacco cessation.
