ABOUT

The NDIT (Nicotine Dependence in Teens) Study is a 20-year prospective cohort investigation of 1294 students recruited in 1999-2000 from all grade 7 classes in 10 secondary schools in Montreal, Canada. Its main objectives were to describe the the natural course and determinants (genetic, socio-demographic, psychosocial, and environmental) of smoking onset and nicotine dependence.

 

In addition to its main objectives, NDIT has embedded studies on obesity, blood pressure, physical activity, sedentary behaviour, diet, genetics, substance use, gambling, sleep and mental health.
