More than just losing your money! – Smoking and drinking go together, and gambling? That too. And new research suggests that casino workers face a higher risk of heart disease and lung cancer because they work in buildings filled with tobacco smoke.
By one scientist’s calculation, six of every 10,000 nonsmoking casino employees in Pennsylvania alone will die each year because of exposure to secondhand smoke. Imagine what the statistics must be in Las Vegas!
Scientists expect that more than 90% of the deaths will be from heart disease, with the rest from lung cancer, which is uncommon in nonsmokers. Researcher James Repace says, “The only other group that’s exposed so much is bartenders.”
