UCSF Professor Stanton A. Glantz, Ph.D., criticizes California Gov. Jerry Brown's veto of Assembly Bill 217, which would have banned smoking inside nursing homes

Just a week after Elder Abuse Exposed.com said in its October 23, 2012 article, “Governor Jerry Brown Vetoes Smoking Ban inside California Nursing Homes,” that Governor Brown was disregarding evidence in the U.S. surgeon general’s 2006 report on the deadly health effects of secondhand smoke exposure and was continuing to disregard the rights of vulnerable nursing home residents, a new University of California, San Francisco study on smoke-free laws shows that Governor Brown’s September 27, 2012 veto of Assembly Bill 217 was not in the interest of public health. The new study, which appears in the American Heart Association journal Circulation (October 30, 2012), is called “Association between Smoke-Free Legislation and Hospitalizations for Cardiac, Cerebrovascular, and Respiratory Diseases: A Meta-Analysis.” The authors of the study are Crystal E. Tan, MS, and Stanton A. Glantz, Ph.D., who is a professor of medicine and the director of the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at UCSF.
