Abstract

Authors’ conclusions: the implementation of the English smoke-free legislation appears to be associated with a decrease in the rate of hospital admission for childhood asthma.

Reviewers' commentary: this study supports the association between the reduction in asthma admissions and reduced exposure to passive smoking. The broadcastof these effects may promote avoidance of passive smoking in children and adolescents.
