Kalamazoo Smoking Ban Study Confirms Cleaner Air

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- A new state health study that compares the quality of the air in restaurants before and after the smoking ban shows remarkable improvements.

Some of the six unidentified restaurants tested in Kalamazoo prior to the change actually had air that registered in the hazardous range, and not for just sensitive people with breathing problems, but hazardous for everyone.  Now they all test good to moderate.

The law remains controversial.  Some bar and restaurants owners say the ban has hurt business, but it’s hard to say how much of that is due to smokers staying away and how much of it is due to the sour economy.
