Heart attack rates drop after smoking bans implemented and continue downward over time
Please take a look at this story about a recent study on smoke-free air laws. We have known for sometime that smoke-free laws reduce exposure to secondhand smoke. But now from this recent study we know reduced exposure to secondhand smoke will reduce heart disease, stroke, and lung cancer over the long term. However, more and more studies are showing that communities that pass smoke-free laws are seeing an immediate and significant reduction in heart attacks after the laws go into effect.
Check out this recent study published on September 21, 2009.
