Secondhand smoke exposure grow among college students
Islamabad: Researchers have raised concerns about increasing exposure to secondhand smoke (SHS) among college students.

"It is well-known that there are some serious health issues surrounding secondhand smoke," BBC Radio quotes them as saying in a study.

According to the researchers, while some college campuses are smoke-free, others have virtually no restrictions on smoking not even in the residential halls.

"There is a growing national movement to move away from that, but it still very much varies by campus. In this first study to evaluate the SHS exposure among college students, we were really kind of floored to see how many, and how frequently, students are exposed to it," they said.

During the study, the researchers surveyed 4,223 undergraduate college students of which 83 percent reported having been exposed to the SHS at least once in the seven days preceding the survey.

The study showed that 65 percent of the exposure happened at a restaurant or bar, followed by 55 percent exposure at home or in the same room and 38 percent in car.

According to it, daily and occasional smokers were more likely than nonsmokers to report exposure, perhaps not surprising given that they are more likely than other students to have friends who smoke and to frequent or live in locations where smoking occurs. Similarly, students who binge drink were more likely than other students to report exposure to the SHS.

Other factors, which appeared to be associated with increased exposure to the SHS, included living in residence locations where smoking is allowed or locations associated with smoking, such as Greek houses and off-campus housing, being female, of white race, having parents with higher education levels and attending a public versus private school.

The SHS contains at least 250 chemicals that are either toxic or carcinogenic and is, itself, considered a human carcinogen. "We were really shocked to see that 83 percent of students reported at least some exposure during the previous week," Wolfson said.

"That said we don't know if the exposure was at a nuisance level or at a level that might influence health. Either way, knowing what we know about the SHS, lowering the rates of smoking is definitely something we should be seriously looking at on college campuses," he added.

The study suggests that colleges should consider looking at ways to take steps to reduce smoking and concomitant exposure to SHS among their students. APP

Research culture urged in medical institutions
Peshawar: Participants of a two-day workshop that started here on Monday stressed the need for introducing research culture in medical institutions at all levels. The workshop on "Bio-Ethics" was organized by the directorate of research and development of Khyber Medical University (KMU) at the Lady Reading Hospital Peshawar here.

Noted physician and former principal of Khyber Medical College Prof Dr Nasiruddin Azam Khan was the chief guest. He said that due to the lack of motivation and interest, the importance of research had been ignored in the noble profession of medicine. "It is the need of the hour to develop and plan a research strategy at graduate and post graduate levels," he said.

In order to overcome the sufferings and miseries of the ailing humanity focus should also be made on ethical aspect of the research, he said, adding the education system was no doubt producing qualified and skilled doctors but it had failed to produce morally sound professionals.

Earlier, in his inaugural address vice-chancellor KMU Prof Dr Muhammad Hafizullah said that KMU had allocated a sound share of its resources for research activities and it planned to develop and introduce a research culture in the medical institutions. He said the workshop was practical example of interest and focus on research enhancement activities. The news
