GRAPHIC=second hand smoke
Here's news people can take to heart-- in tonight's Health Check report--
Women regularly exposed to secondhand smoke in the home may increase their
risk of heart disease-- and in the workplace it's just as dangerous.
Cigarette smoking has already been shown in many studies to be a cause
of coronary heart disease in both men and women.
A study reported in today's journal "Circulation,"-- assessed the risk of
more than 32-thousand female nurses who never smoked along with their exposure
to passive smoking at home and at work over a ten year period.
Scientists at Harvard Medical School led the study.
The Centers for Disease Control says the results are the strongest so far in
this area of research.
((DR. ICHIRO KAWACHI/HARVARD SCHOOL OF PUBLIC HEALTH: IF YOUR PRIMARY PLACE
OF EXPOSURE WAS THE WORKPLACE, THAT PERSON WAS ABOUT TWICE THE RISK OF A HEART
ATTACK.. AND, SIMILARLY, IF YOUR PRIMARY PLACE OF
EXPOSURE WAS IN THE HOME, THEN YOU ARE ALSO AT ABOUT TWICE THE RISK OF A HEART
ATTACK COMPARED TO SOMEONE WHO WASN'T EXPOSED. ))

Advocates of a nationwide ban on smoking in workplaces and sites such as
bars and restaurants say the study could lead to stricter smoking rules.
Its findings could also be useful to those suing the tobacco industry.

Older Americans kicking the habit may be a reason for a decline in the
number of people over 65 living with chronic disabilities.
The national long-term care survey finds only 21 percent of older Americans
suffer with a disability that impairs daily activity.
In 1982 about one in four older Americans had a chronic disability.
This improvement is attributed to better medications and lifestyle changes
such as activity and quitting smoking.
