2010-03-15: New article examines behavioral risk disparities in a random sample of self-identifying gay and non-gay male university students
Wake Forest University researchers just published an examination of health risks among gay vs. straight college-attending men, randomly selected from 10 schools in North Carolina.
The data showed the odds of gay male college students smoking in the last 30 days compared to straight college men were 3.27 (95% confidence interval: 2.27-4.7; adjusted for clustering and demographics).
39% of gay college students smoked in the past 30 days compared to 30% of straight college students.
