Bonetti, P O; Trachsel, L D; Kuhn, M U; Schulzki, T; Erne, P; Radovanovic, D; Reinhart, W H (2011). Incidence of acute myocardial infarction after implementation of a public smoking ban in Graubünden, Switzerland: two year follow-up. Swiss Medical Weekly, 141:w13206.
Compared with the two years preceding the implementation of a smoking ban, the incidence of AMI remained significantly reduced in the second year of the ban in Graubünden, whereas no similar reduction was seen in a comparable area without smoke-free legislation. Changes in outdoor air pollution or the use of lipid-lowering drugs did not substantially contribute to the decrease in the incidence of AMI that occurred after adoption of the ban in Graubünden.
