Facts About the Most Used and Abused Drugs from Alcohol to Ecstasy:
Restaurant Secondhand Smoke Monitoring Program Criticized
Dear Join Together Online,
The opening story on secondhand smoke monitoring is at best amusing. When I was a child, my father worked around atomic energy materials. He had a "roentgen counter" that monitored his exposure to radioactivity -- when it reached a certain level, he was to stay away from the materials for some time.
The St. Louis Park experiment is dangerous for several reasons:
it does not address employee exposure, yet restaurant employee health
has been the driving force behind many smoking bans
Curiously, the program could also deter business in ways that going smoke-free does not, and give restaurant employees another tool in their fight for a smoke-free workplace. In the long run it might actually help St Louis Park progress toward a real health solution.
