The Burning Question

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The purpose of this study was to describe the attitudes and beliefs of Latinos with lower socioeconomic status regarding combustible cigarette smoking and hypertension. The larger study used a sequential multimethod approach with qualitative interviews. Results of the secondary analysis of participant responses to the grand tour question, “Tell me what you know about hypertension” revealed that the participants described smoking as a cause of cancer not hypertension and did not describe themselves as smokers even though they smoked intermittently on social occasions.
