Study: Banning Smoking in Cars Beneficial to Children's Health
A study in the UK shows that there are benefits to children's health by banning smoking in cars:
"Children are vulnerable enough to fine particles in second-hand smoke in vehicles that bans against smoking in a car with a child are worthwhile, a new review suggests.
There's enough evidence that second-hand smoke in a car does harm children to legislate against the practice, a study in an upcoming issue of the Canadian Medical Association Journal concludes.
Dr. Ray Pawson of the University of Leeds school of sociology and social policy in the U.K. and his co-authors reviewed myths and facts surrounding the risks of second-hand smoke in vehicles carrying children.
