Ireland Smoke Ban Cleans Pub Air

The smoking ban in Ireland has cut air pollution in pubs and improved bar-workers’ health, a study has found. Researchers said the ban, which came in at the end of March 2004, had led to an 83% reduction in air pollution and an 80% cut in cancer-causing agents. Smoking bans are already in place in Wales and Scotland. Northern Ireland will follow suit on 30 April, with England’s ban coming into force on 1 July
