New CDC Report Demonstrates Urgency for All States and Cities to Become Smokefree
Date:7/10/2008

first issued its 2010 Challenge in January of 2006, 23 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico have passed comprehensive laws banning smoking in public areas. Yet, secondhand smoke exposure still causes approximately 3,400 lung cancer deaths and 22,700-69,600 heart disease deaths in adult nonsmokers in the United States each year.

"The good news is that we are tantalizingly close to reaching our goal of a smokefree America by 2010," said Toomey. "We have a chance to dramatically improve the health of our nation and call upon the support of each and everyone to make our country a healthier place for all."

For more information on secondhand smoke and the American Lung Association's Smokefree Air 2010 Challenge, please visit http://www.lungusa.org. Assistance to quit smoking can be found by calling 1-800-LUNG-USA (1-800-586-4872).
