||Involuntary smoking in the restaurant workplace: A review of employee exposure and health effects
||28 July 1993, Vol.270, No.4, p.490-493. 42 ref.
||Evidence from published studies of indoor air quality indicates that levels of environmental tobacco smoke in restaurants are approximately 1.6 to 2.0 times higher than in office workplaces of other businesses and 1.5 times higher than in residences with at least one smoker. Levels in bars are 3.9 to 6.1 times higher than in offices and 4.4 to 4.5 times higher than in residences. Published epidemiological evidence suggests that there may be a 50% increase in lung cancer risk among food-service workers that is in part attributable to tobacco exposure in the workplace.
