NEW YORK HERALD TRIBUNE New York, New York June 26, 196 You Can Quit Cigarettes But . Can't Quit Breathin By M . C . Blackman Ol TAe Keral6 T lbaae stil Smoking cigarettes and breathing New York City's air called by experts the dirtiest In the nation In some respects, are both dangerous to health Combining the two increases the hazards and Is often fatal but while residents can give up smoking, they can't give up breathing These conclusions were the consensus of several speakers yesterday at the second day of a two-day public hearing on air Pollution conducted by the City Council at city Hall Their logical solution . besides quitting cigarettes, was : Clean up the -air The first requisite in doing this is more money . according to Dr . Leonard - Oreenburg, who appeared-at the bearing to say again what he said on almost every public occasion when he was the city's lint Commissioner of Air Pollution Control from 1952 to 1960 . He reminded the Council and through It, the Mayor, that the city spends about 11 cents per capita on this problem as compared with 45 to 50 cents by Ban Francisco and 60 cents by Los Angeles . He called for better and faster methods of keeping air clean The same money shortage plaint has been voiced re- peatedly by 'Dr . Oreenburg's successor, Commissioner Ar- thur J . Beaune . who was ap- pointed by the Mayor to the $25000-a-year Job in 1960 and reappointed In 1962 AUTHORITY Three speakers linked cigar- ette-smoking and air pollu- tion to respiratory ailments . or lung cancer, or both . The most authoritative and the cagiest was Dr . nest L . Wynder . as- sociate member of the Sloan- Kettering Institute for cancer Research . He said "Studies carried out at Sloan-Kettering . have demonstrated that air pollu- tion, as prevails In New York city . does not Increase the risk of lung cancer in the non-smoking population The data are further In agreement that cigarette smokers in cities have a some- what higher rate of lung can- cer than in rural areas it' remain to be established, however, that differences in smoking habits . occupatio LIB- 47212 cancer In urban and rural areas may not account for this 'urban factor" The pithiest comment on the- connection of the two dangers came from Dr . Frank . Rosen, chairman of the Essex County Medical Soci- ety's Air Pollution Committee in New Jersey . (That indus- trial neighboring state had been blamed by first day speakers, including Commis- sioner Benline . for responsi bility for part of New York City's pollution problem COMPLAINT After noting the Inability to give up breathing, unlike smoking . Dr . Roses com- plained that "we are only be- ginning to grapple with the vital problem of air pollu- tion ." and added : "The air is a giant open sewer, and since we have no choice but to breathe it . It is high time we paid some attention to the garbage we spew Into It To such routine contribu- tors of "garbage" in the air as incinerators, factory pros emu . insecticide sprays . and suburban leaf-burning In the autumn, he added the novel one of Jet planes, saying "The take-off of one com- mercial jet plane produces air pollution equivalent to that produced by 6,850 passenger cars ." In another unorthodox complaint, he lamented that hospitals . dedicated to health, "are producing air pollution In many areas" from over- burdened Incinerators . that burn "more and more dispos- able Items ." Some of these wastes contain toxic chem- icals, be suggested The third speaker to link the dangers of cigarette smoking and air pollution, taken together . was Dr . Harry Heimann . senior research sW sociate of the Harvard School of Public Health, who has studied major pollution crises In various parts of the world He suggested more atten- tion to the danger that cigarette smoking may com- bine with general air pollu- tion as "a very Important factor" In respiratory ail- ments RC- 600858 Page 2 LG 0159'368 Source: http://industrydocuments.library.ucsf.edu/tobacco/docs/hnyk0016
