The analysis of the results of a questionnaire on tobacco smoking habit, carried out in these two higher educational establishments, allowed establishing the fact, that the number of smoking students of «UralSUPC» was 31% lower than that of «ChelSU». The analysis of the passive smoke in those students was also conducted. The received results proved «UralSUPC» students to be less vulnerable to the passive smoke than those in «Chelsea». The analysis of the results of the morbidity showed the leading role of respiratory diseases in the structure of the temporary disability.
