Abstract

This study investigated: (a) the association between living with a smoker and weight-related health risk behaviors, and (b) the role of these behaviors in indirectly linking living with a smoker to general and central adiposity. Participants were 83,492 women (age M = 63.5, SD = 7.36) from the Women’s Health Initiative Observational Study. In logistic regression analyses at baseline, living with a smoker was associated with increased odds of no exercise (29%), no walking (33%), high dietary fat (62%), and low fruit and vegetable consumption (43%). Using structural equation modeling, bootstrap confidence intervals confirmed a significant indirect effect from living with a smoker to adiposity through health risk behaviors at baseline and prospectively across 3 and 8 years. Health risk behaviors fully explained the living with a smoker–adiposity relationship. These findings integrate clustering and contagion theoretical perspectives on health behaviors and contribute to understanding a novel pathway to adiposity.
