Study: Smoking Bans Beneficial For Kids

It’s the strongest evidence yet that second-hand cigarette smoke is bad for kids.  A Scottish study shows that smoking bans spare many kids with asthma from being hospitalized.

The finding suggests smoke-free laws have a bigger health impact than previously thought. This report is the largest of its kind and shows a 13% drop in asthma-related hospitalizations in the first year after a smoking ban was imposed in Scotland. Previous U.S. studies had reached similar conclusions.

The new report’s being published today. Find out more by clicking here.

    Too bad we Americans couldn’t figure this out on our own… we had to get the info from the Scotts.
