Stomach cancer Cancer Visualized The Michigan Ban Toledo Clean Air Tobacco Banned? A clean air ordinance was put in place in March, 2002, in Bowling Green, Ohio, banning smoking in public and in the workplace. Statistics on admission rates for smoking related diseases, namely coronary heart disease, were gathered from January 1999 (pre-ban) to June 2005 with impressive results! Rates of coronary heart disease hospital admissions after one year dropped by 39% and by 47% following Year 3 of the clean air ordinance One can easily conclude that instituting smoking bans would not only have a positive impact on reducing hospital admissions such as heart disease, but also a positive impact on reducing healthcare costs. Michigan banned smoking in restaurants and bars in May, 2010. Initially, the main concern was the loss of smoking customers in restaurants. A survey conducted by the Michigan Restaurant Association three months after the ban was established, showed that 43 percent of restaurant and tavern owners reported no change in their sales or number of visitors to their establishments since the ban took effect. On the flipside, 42.4 percent of owners claim that their overall business and number of customers visiting their establishments were lower since the ban . It will more time to be able to adequately assess the pros and cons of the ban, but so far the ban has led to a greater overall health of my home state, which greatly outweighs any negative business issues associated with the ban.
