Smoking bans' effects on heart disease risks -- IOM report releases Oct. 15
Date:10/6/2009

The dangers of secondhand smoke have led some organizations and communities to establish smoking bans in offices, restaurants, and other public venues. The effectiveness of such bans in protecting people from health risks associated with breathing environmental tobacco smoke has been a matter of continuing debate. Secondhand-Smoke Exposure and Cardiovascular Effects: Making Sense of the Evidence, a new report from the Institute of Medicine, provides a comprehensive evaluation of studies exploring the impacts of smoking bans in the United States and abroad and the relationship between secondhand smoke and heart disease. Based on this review, the report offers conclusions about the effectiveness of smoke-free policies. The report will be released with a one-hour public briefing.

Details: 11 a.m. to noon EDT Thursday, Oct. 15, Room 201 of the National Academies Keck Center, 500 Fifth St., N.W., Washington, D.C. Those who cannot attend may participate by conference call.
