secondhand smoke ban stops health damage fast

“[...] the British Medical Journal publishe[d] a study that claims to be the first showing that cutting exposure to second-hand smoke prevents heart attacks immediately, and on a large scale.

“The San Francisco doctors compared heart attack rates for the same months of the four years before the ban and first year after it, to avoid any seasonal differences.

“And they also found a sudden contrast that developed between the city and the country around it: The area outside Helena didn't enact any smoking ban, and its heart attack numbers stayed the same through the study period, while Helena's rate fell.”

Original paper in the BMJ.
