— Percent of large U.S. cities with laws that prevent smoking in public places.

Thirty of the 50 largest cities in the country now have smoke-free policies in all indoor areas such as restaurants and offices, compared to only one (San Jose) that had such laws in 2000. That means 50% of Americans are protected from the potentially harmful effects of second-hand smoke. [via Centers for Disease Control and Prevention]
