However, the differences between groups are much smaller than for females. The average values of SCH are very similar for both groups over the entire age interval. The average values of DBP in the LE group are lower than those of the HE group until age 45. After this age, the two curves are very similar. The values of H for the LE group tend to be lower than for the HE group for all ages. The PP curves for the two groups are very similar over the entire age interval. The average values of SBP for the LE group are lower than those for the HE group until age 50.

3a shows the age patterns of survival functions for smoking and non-smoking female participants of the Original FHS cohort.

Beyond overall survival, the question we now address is: Which of the eight physiological indices described above mediate the harmful influences of a smoking on survival? To address this question, Fig. 3b Fig. 3 (a) Age patterns of survival functions for smokers and non-smokers among female participants of the Original FHS cohort.
