ESTHERVILLE DAILY Page 5 NEWS, WED., JAN. 12, 1972 Cigarette Warning is Renewed WASHINGTON (AP) - Recognizing that Americans continue to smoke despite the higher risk of cancer, heart attacks and lung diseases, the U.S. surgeon general said today that new efforts must be encouraged to develop safer cigarettes. And the health hazard may not be limited to smokers, the Public Health Service said in a 226-page report to Congress. Nonsmokers in a smoke-filled room may be exposed to carbon monoxide levels exceeding some local air-pollution limits, the report said, and especially threatening to persons already suffering from chronic broncho­ pulmonary and coronary diseases. "We must continue to encourage cessation as the only certain way to protect both the individual and society from the harmful effects of smoking," Surgeon General Jesse L. Steinfeld said. "We must also, however, work towards reducing the dangers of smoking for those who have not quit by developing less-hazardous cigarettes and encouraging less-hazardous ways of smoking," he added. The report, the fifth in a series since the first 1964 surgeon general's report linked cigarette smoking to disease and premature death, recommended that primary emphasis In developing a safer cigarette be aimed at reduction of carbon monoxide, nicotine and tar. Sen. Frank Moss Immediately announced that his Senate Commerce subcommitee will hold hearings Feb. 1, 3 and 10 to consider legislation setting tar and nicotine limits. Health Secretary Elliot L. Richardson, in a letter accompanying the new smoking report, told Congress his department supports regulatory efforts by the Federal Trade Commission to require health warnings in cigarette advertising along with listings of each brand's tar and nicotine content. Printed health warnings now are required, on cigarette packages. "Should these efforts fail, however, we would return to our previous recommendations that this should be accompanied through legislative action," he said. The report said carbon monoxide, nicotine and tar are "most, likely to contribute to the health hazards of smoking." Removal of six other substances described as probable contributors should be given second priority, it said, before efforts are made to reduce several other compounds considered suspected contributors. The report noted disagreement among scientists, however, as to whether lower- nicotine cigarettes actually would curb smoking diseases. "An alternative point of view held by some is that smoking behavior is a response to the need to reach a certain nicotine level and that lowering the amount of nicotine available from a cigarette may result in an increase in the number of cigarettes smoked, the depth of inhalation or the number of puffs in order to maintain an accustomed level," the report said. "Such an increase in smoking might result in an increased inhalation of other hazardous substances In the smoke ... In the first attempt at examining the effects of cigarette smoke on nonsmokers, the report said persons in a smoke- filled room may be exposed to carbon monoxide levels of 20 to 80 parts per million, equal to or higher than some local air-pollution limits and national air- quality standards. "The presence of such levels indicates that the effect of exposure to carbon monoxide may on occasion, depending upon the length of exposure, be sufficient to be harmful to the health of an exposed person," it said. "This would be particularly significant for people who are already suffering from chronic broncho-pulmonary disease and coronary heart disease." Although experiments have shown that other components of cigarette smoke cause pulmonary and heart disease in mice and rabbits, the report said, the effect of these substances on nonsmoking humans still has not been determined. The report, drawing on more than 1,500 research projects since the 1971 report, cites also what it calls new evidence reinforcing earlier warnings on dangers of cigarette smoking. re***™ i?exa// MOUTHWASHES GREAT BUYS for daily oral care.
