Heart attack rates fall 17% within a year after smoking bans take effect, according to two recent analyses of laws in the USA, Canada and Europe. One analysis, which included 13 studies, appears in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association. A second analysis, which considered 11 studies, appears in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

    As good of news as it is, why are people paying more attention to the laws of smoking/heart attack correlation? It will just lead to nowhere, as the more limitations on smokers, the more they won't quit on their own (if were they to refer to any of the many health resources available on the matter.
