Dr. Ursula Reusch, who practices at the GCS-Macon (308 Coliseum Drive, Suite 120; 478-745-6130) and GCS-Hawkinsville (214 Perry Hwy.; 478-783-4022) offices says she supports the stricter smoking rules that were recently passed by Macon council. The dangers of secondhand smoke, she says, are evident and clear.
“We know from studies that there are enough carcinogens in there that, just in the U.S., 3,400 non-smokers get lung cancer because of secondhand smoke,” Dr. Reusch said. “Only 100% smoke-free environments provide effective protection.”
