Statewide Smoking Ban in Delaware

November 2002, the little state's big step will give it the nation's toughest ban on indoor smoking, one
that would end smoking in all public areas, including bars, restaurants and casinos. At that stage,
other states already have laws, which ban smoking, including thestates of California, Colorado,
Maryland and Utah, but most still allowed smoking in bars. The bill passed with little to no resistance.
The Delaware State Chamber of Commerce took opposition on it, and the Delaware Restaurant
Association dropped its opposition the week before the bill passed. Delaware health officials say
tobacco use is a factor in more than one-third of all cancer cases in the state.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has classified secondhand smoke as a Group A carcinogen,
which means there's sufficient evidence that it causes cancer in humans, according to the American
Cancer Society. Each year, secondhand smoke in the United States is responsible for an estimated
35,000 to 40,000 deaths from heart disease in people who are not smokers. It's also to blame for
about 3,000 lung cancer deaths in nonsmoking adults.

Dr. D. A Waterfield, said that the smoke-free environments will protect the health of all residents in
Delaware by helping youth never to start smoking, encouraging adults to quit smoking, and reducing
the exposure for all of us to the harmful effects of secondhand smoke.

アメリカ合衆国の大西洋岸に位置し、北はペンシルバニア州に、東をニュージャージー州、南西をメリーランド
州と隣接し囲まれている、ロードアイランド州に次ぐ小さな州である。日本人には比較的なじみは少ないが、
世界最大の化学会社、デュポンの米国法人、生命保険大手、アリコの本社はここにある。人口は州の北部に
集中するが、その中心地は、フィラデルフィア・メトロポリタン地区の南端都市として知られるウイルミントン
( Wilmington )である。

2002年11月にすべての公共建物、職場、レストラン、バー、カジノでの全面禁煙規制を施行した。当時、
最も先進的とされていたカリフォルニア州の喫煙規制ではインデアン・カジノを例外としていたが、
デラウェア州ではカジノを最初から規制の範囲に含めるなど、数年間先行した法案だ。

こうした厳しい規制内容にも拘わらず、条例制定に対する反対はほとんど見られなかった。デラウェア・
レストラン協会は法令採択の前週に反対意見を取り下げ条例成立に協力した。デラウェア保健局は米国に於ける
癌(がん)の原因の3分の1以上はタバコによるものだとしている。米国環境保護局はタバコ副流煙はAクラス
発癌物質であり、米国癌学会によれば、タバコの煙が人体に癌を発生させる十分な証拠があるとしている。
毎年、タバコを吸わない35,000人から 40,000人がタバコ副流煙の有害物質のために心臓病で死亡、肺癌死は
3,000に及ぶ。

Dr. Waterfield,はタバコの煙のない環境はすべてのデルウェア州民の健康向上に役立つ。その効用は未成年者が
タバコに手を染めることを防止し、スモカーの禁煙を促し、すべての州民を副流煙の有害物質から守ることである
と述べている。
