Smoking, growing private hospital care for poor and US flu vaccine policies

NEW YORK CITY, May 14 -- Bans on smoking at home may have greater influence on health status than those at work, according to a first-study-of-its kind study published in the May/June 2007 issue of The Journal of Urban Health (JUH), a bi-monthly publication of The New York Academy of Medicine.
