New Report: Tobacco Regulation Would Save Iowa $449 Million in Health Care Costs by Preventing 25,700 Kids from Smoking
Date:12/13/2007

12.5 percent. In Iowa, such a reduction in youth smoking would:

-- Prevent 25,700 kids alive today from becoming smokers; -- Save 8,200 kids alive today from premature, smoking-caused deaths; -- Reduce future health care costs by $449.8 million, including $57.9 million less Medicaid program spending.

Iowa would realize additional health and financial benefits from reductions in adult smoking. The Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids report estimates that every one percentage point reduction in adult smoking in Iowa would result in $215.7 million health care savings, 22,700 fewer adult smokers, and 6,000 fewer deaths from smoking. With greater declines in adult smoking, these benefits would be even larger.

Nationwide, a 12.5 percent reduction in youth smoking would prevent 2.5 million kids from becoming smokers; save more than 797,000 kids alive today from premature, smoking-caused deaths; and produce $44.4 billion in health care savings, including $7.9 billion under the Medicaid program. Each one percentage point decline in adult smoking would result in $21.7 billion in health care savings, including $3.8 billion under Medicaid and nearly 2.3 million fewer adult smokers, resulting in 600,000 fewer deaths from smoking.

Bipartisan bills to grant the FDA authority over tobacco have been introduced in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. Demonstrating strong, bipartisan support, the legislation has 215 House sponsors and 55 Senate sponsors. The Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee passed the legislation on August 1, and it is currently pending before the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

This legislation has the support of every major national public health organization and more than 560 public health, faith and other groups across the country (see list at: http://www.tobaccofreekids.org/reports/fda/organizations.pdf
