Resumen This study examined possible differences between future shift workers and future day workers as regards cardiovascular risk factors before taking up their work and the differences that remained after control for socio-demographic factors. Altogether 2870 social and health care workers in Denmark filled out a questionnaire a few weeks before finishing their formal training and again one year after graduation. They answered questions on diabetes, hypertension, lifestyle habits and socio-demographic factors. Compared with future day workers, fixed evening or fixed night workers already smoked more before they began shift work. Being an ex-smoker was significantly associated with shift work. Possible causes of these findings are discussed.
