Tobacco control over the past 50 years may have saved millions of lives
Tobacco control over the past 50 years may have saved millions of lives (January 9, 2014 - Insidermedicine) From Connecticut - A new report published in JAMA finds that efforts to reduce smoking in the US over the past 50 years have saved 80 million lives. Researchers studied smoking mortality from when tobacco control was initially implemented,1964, to 2012. Researchers then estimated mortality with no tobacco control. They estimated that over 17 million smoking attributable deaths occurred over that time period. However, they also estimated that 8 million premature smoking-attributable deaths were saved as a result of tobacco control efforts during this time period.
