received a grade of Satisfactory Minus. Utah ranked first overall, although even its grade was only Satisfactory Minus.

How do we reach the national goals set for women and smoking?

The best advice for women is to never start. Then, we need to make it more expensive, which has been shown to prevent young girls from smoking. If you smoke, you need to stop as soon as possible. The state as a whole needs more cessation programs, more insurance coverage, more bans on work-site smoking, more smoke-free homes and more health care providers talking to their patients about how best to quit smoking, Berlin said.
