WASHINGTON, D.C.—A new study published in Circulation, a journal of the American Heart Association, takes a deeper look at the implementation of smoke-free laws in casinos and its impact on reported medical emergencies. Researchers from the University of California, San Francisco compared the number of medical emergencies before and after casinos implemented smoke-free regulations that were meant to protect people from the detrimental effects of secondhand smoke. They found a significant decrease in medical emergencies once those laws were implemented. Today, only 19 states and Puerto Rico have laws making all state-regulated gambling smoke free. Since many casinos are still exempted from legislation mandating smoke-free environments, many put their employees and patrons at risk for the acute effects of secondhand smoke exposure. In 2011, 600,000 nonsmokers worldwide died from involuntary exposure to secondhand smoke and each year, in the United States, 49,400 people die from secondhand smoke-induced heart disease and lung cancer. The study examines the differences in ambulance calls originating from casinos before and after the casinos were made smoke free.
