Abstract
A study of 3,726 Appalachian coal miners was undertaken to determine the standard mortality ratio (SMR) for heart disease, and to determine the effect of smoking, excess weight, and the level of physical activity on deaths due to heart disease. In both working and nonworking miners, obese smokers have the greatest risk of dying of heart disease. In the nonsupervisory underground work categories of face, transportation, and maintenance, an increase of SMR was observed, with face having the lowest and maintenance workers having the highest SMR.
