Secondhand smoke exposure has an immediate harmful impact on the cardiovascular system of nonsmokers, and smoke-free policies are a very effective way to protect nonsmokers from secondhand smoke. Mayo Clinic researchers have evidence that the incidence of heart attacks decreased dramatically after Olmsted County’s workplaces and restaurants went smoke-free - dropping by 33 percent.
The paper will be published in the November issue of Archives of Internal Medicine.
The news release from the journal as well as B-roll and sound bites with Richard Hurt, M.D., director of the Mayo Clinic Nicotine Dependence Center and lead author of the study, are available in the downloads above.
