Resumen

La evidencia reciente sugiere que la obesidad y la tasa de prevalencia del tabaco se mueven en direcciones opuestas. Este trabajo examina la relacion causal entre dichas variables en Argentina. Los efectos del consumo de tabaco en el peso corporal son estimados utilizando variables instrumentales para lidiar con problemas de endogeneidad. Con este fin, el trabajo toma provecho de leyes provinciales para el control del tabaco que fueron aplicadas en diferentes per´ıodos temporales. Nuestros resultados muestran que fumar tiene un impacto negativo en tres medidas de peso corporal (BMI, peso en kilogramos, tasa de obesidad). Estos hallazgos sugieren que las reglamentaciones contra el tabaco deben ser complementadas con controles nutricionales y promoción de ´la actividad f´ısica.
