Smoke Out

In this article, the effects of second hand smoke are described. Also the improvements from banning smoking in public and work places. Smoking was banned in public and work places in Scotland. Research was done in order to determine the difference the ban made. Workers from a pub had many tests done before the ban was in order. Wheezing, shortness of breath and eye irretation was commonly reported along with other minor symptoms. The pub workers were tested after one month of the ban, and after the second month of the ban. The health of the workers improved after only one month. By the second month, the pub workers were as healthy as could be. After the smoking ban, symptoms were almost instantly eliminated.
