Smoking Ban Improves N.Y. Bar Workers Health
7/29/05 intox.com

New York's workplace smoking ban, enacted last year, has demonstrably improved the health of bar and restaurant workers in the state, the Associated Press reported July 27.

Workers reported fewer sore throats and runny noses in 2004, after the ban went into effect, compared to 2003. Specifically, reports of runny noses, irritated noses, and sneezing fell from 54 percent of workers to 12 percent, sore and scratchy throat reports fell from 42 percent to 17 percent, and the incidence of red and irritated eyes fell from 67 percent to 25 percent.

Workers reported that the were exposed to an average of 12 minutes of tobacco smoke per week in 2004; in 2003, the average exposure was 12 hours. Workers level of blood cotinine -- a marker for exposure to secondhand smoke -- fell 78 percent after the ban was imposed.

The study was published in the August 2005 issue of the journal Tobacco Control.
