Passive smoking rates drop by 95% among hospitality workers

Early returns from an indoor smoking ban in England:

The study for charity Cancer UK and carried out by the Tobacco Control Collaborating Centre in Warwick found non-smoking hospitality workers had four times less cotinine – a byproduct of nicotine and an indicator of tobacco smoke exposure – in their saliva in August than they had in June.

They calculated that, on average, employees’ exposure was the equivalent to smoking 190 cigarettes a year before the legislation, and that this had fallen to the equivalent of around 44 cigarettes since.
