of 30000 oregonians countries but. Who are concerned about the harm that tobacco and go to wait for them to learn more. I'm about tobacco prevention and and then also about the harms of tobacco . For Oregon and and throughout the year smoke free org and messages he might have seen come on TV or heard him on the radio but there. Talent. I'm TV radio print and billboard as well as digital and social media. Crack the. Is it surprising to you and people are working your type of of industry and do you feel like you're beating your head against the wall. At times because there why do people keep smoking it's it's such a bad thing to do. If it's a very big challenge. Matt and I know that we send. We started that tobacco prevention education programme and that 1997. And tobacco prevention or tobacco consumption and he's smoking an organ had been reduced by more than 50%. But despite declines in tobacco use that still remains the number one preventable cause of death and disease. An organ that that's that's kind of what we look towards is that this is something that can stop before you start to believe we are doing a lot of workarounds if I'm advancing policies and environments and systems that promote health. And prevent and manage chronic diseases specifically. Around tobacco use and also physical activity and nutrition and south. We're really added excited about sort that we do and I think having the passion of the folks that they level as well as the local level and having match. That coordination and collaboration across the state really haven't heard it sucks to keep doing what they do every day that's. How folks can even start from even starting to use smoke or use tobacco itself. Racing and did decrease in people actually starting. Smoking . We are being seek treatment people who starting. But it still it still relevant and we want to do. I'd imagine there are declines in tobacco use but it's still remains the number one. Preventable cause of death and disease and organ and so and addiction to tobacco actually start. At a very young a it would start during child had the 90% of current adult smokers started smoking before they turn eighteen. And if the complaint or again twenty adolescents start smoking each day that we know that this is the big issue especially among these population. I am very out we are definitely I am working on. Addressing. But that tobacco use among adults as well as that you population and. What are the biggest concerns and challenges that exist in Oregon right now when it comes to smoking . Well. As I mentioned at all though that tobacco . Tobacco's cheap. We eat them and has packaging that's attractive to youth and young adults which is a big reason why a lot of them to start gearing child's head and toe weighted heavily promoted. And marketed and locations that are easily extract ball to them as well which makes it very easy. For you can use start engaging brown and tobacco you and so that they major challenge that we've addressed here. And public health division and then all though. As I mentioned that addiction and to do it tobacco start really young and so we want to make sure that we are I'm addressing all of those. Factors that come in a place for that population and I'm as well as put in the support. Come and placed you give those at a party started tobacco use that necessary services they need to help them quit. What are some ways that'd that tobacco products are advertised to two younger people. So. Big stops third so there. Flavor and that. Tobacco use can come in different flavors that are appealing to kids are here. So that's why this week component comes into play how their package to. Make their packaged in a colorful manner that's attractive he is older although there. Price. If they are still considered to be affordable and so. Their containment strategies that we know at the state and local level to help reduce. Tobacco use among both the youth and that adult population. Then what are some of the strategies. That though. And I just mentioned that such heat factor now increasing the price of tobacco is driven strategy. That. That we know at both the state and local level and it is is part of the work that's happening come across or court and you helped. Focused from the start. From starting to you tobacco without increasing the price of tobacco . Also promoting tobacco free environment so where people live work learn and play each. And making sure that there's. More tobacco free environments available for folks. Especially those that are trying to stop quitting tobacco use. Also improving access to affordable and effective services to help people quit it's. So that would be like that organ tobacco quit line and which all chat about a little bit more and then. Morning and tobacco dangers. At all Oregonian does not come about through our smoke free organ initiative and a twelve a lot of media. The EC across the state to make sure that folks are aware of the dangers of tobacco . All boats. Reducing youth exposure to tobacco marketing the kind of what I mentioned before or what but that sheep and sweet and the packaging that's attracted to you. And then all limiting places were tobacco sold. And those are some of mainly driven strategies that we know at that public health condition that helps to reduce tobacco use this. Remember and just in the recent past some stores of said the US stores and companies and there were no longer going to be selling tobacco products is that a trend that is continuing. Time we're home and sell a lot of that work happen that the local level all and so it's a lot of that and work with community partners and local public health division's. Across this state that really help move that work forward and and show the advantages do. Do businesses to stop selling tobacco and and how that. It's affecting these population as well as but the most the adult population and so that that is an advantage to them do. Stop telling something that's really dangerous to people's house. The tobacco industry is a large industry to take on. What are some challenges without. You know I think that we it's similar to the challenges that I just mentioned but really Adam. As far as we're concerned we wanted to stay on track and with knowing about the and the dangers of tobacco . And the trend that we're being with pouch from tobacco's being marketed to do that to you as well as young young adults. And then really working on that advancing policies and environment consistent changes that help to promote its. You know countering that the work that's being done to. Get folks. Involved with tobacco use at a young age and so. I think we are. We are doing as much as we possibly can at their rate that we can but. We can see with the decline in tobacco use that hour obviously I'm making an impact with we're doing. We're talking they was sure Pope with the organ health authority. Sir what are the biggest health concerns associated with smoking . Now it's about you is a major risk factor for developing. A lot of chronic diseases and when I make chronic diseases that means things like as glass or color rector colorectal or other forms of cancer lung cancer liver cancer. Arthritis and diabetes. And tobacco also worsen symptoms are people already living with chronic disease says it's. You know that burden all of hard on those that actually. Take part in smoking but especially those that are. I'm a better lower income Oregonian in certain racial and ethnic communities such as African American and American Indian or Alaskan native. To our targeted by the tobacco industry with intense advertising and marketing. What are some health risks are so they associate with smoking might surprise a listeners. Though. That I'm surprised focuses that there are no safe level that secondhand smoke. Oh. That would be approximately 250 people and organ Leno die each year from second hand smoke exposure. Which is a lot of people and nearly 200000. Organ adults are still exposed to secondhand smoke. While working in places where smoking may not be prohibited. And so those would be places like outdoor dining area at her hotel all their casinos are home care settings and construction site. So there's still a lot more work that that we have to do to help support. And communities where out smoking may not be prohibited. And help them get that. Infrastructure in place and that policy then played two make that so that I want to play anymore. You can certainly notice you're doing out in the public because it's it's seems to be harder and harder and harder to smoke in public radio to be certain amount of feet away from the front door there's no smoking in parks it's yeah it's very giving very restricted that's correct. So there's that definitely within our clean Barack. A lot has been placed Wiki doesn't allow folks just smoke can come and tie it. Are there restaurants. And then there's almost certain distance the way that you have to be from those businesses. To be able to look. You tobacco which is denigrates McFadden. Target and that's close that's. I smoke free workplace that doesn't allow folks just smoke and come inside there. Think that this event. That's been really exciting to see those things. Move forward and help progress toward an with. Tobacco prevention work. How does Oregon compared to the rest of the states in the United States. You know I can't really answer that age you know that we are and close to being the third state to do have have tobacco 21 fell amending the age from. Eighteen that when he won for those for people to be able themselves and somebody. Under the age of 21 is now. Illegal but hopefully that we're waiting for that signature to be. Terms. Offense this definitely something that we are excited about the work that to happen so we know that we're leading the way with a lot of that tobacco work. Yeah Yale organ for that that's pretty awesome. How does quitting smoking affect your health and how quickly does that happen. I'm that some quick facts about that the between minute after you quit smoking room. Your blood pressure decreases they compete. A change they're pretty quickly and then twelve hours after he quit smoking carbon monoxide levels in your bled. And your lung function improved and he can breathe more easily. And then one year after quitting your risk of heart disease is cut in half. And then five years after quitting your risk of having a joke at the name of the nonsmokers so you can see. I'm pretty quickly from minute to two years. How quitting smoking had. Such a great effect on your health. And how much of a positive impact that will make for your your quality of life moving forward. And can you also talk about how difficult it is to quit smoking what the effects of nicotine in it and for people to quit smoking what's the challenge there. Yeah absolutely so the nicotine and cigarettes and other tobacco products this. Extremely addictive. And as topic again something like heroin or cocaine. No and cigarette is perfectly engineered so that inside
at the corner store. It one more barrier between people who wanna quit smoking and then freedom front from smoking and now. That's a lot of the work that I had mentioned earlier meant a lot of where we wanna be able to support. Oregonians with quitting smoking is addressing those barriers. They certainly see a lot of tobacco advertising and everywhere rate unfortunately is no longer on television or radio. Well there's yet yes you're correct and I think we've been able to do so. Address a lot of those. Those big barrier is that the tobacco industry has put into place that we definitely still have a lot more work ahead of us. And how about taping is that third consider in the same and seeming. For maintaining. Men. That is part and he. They ping has included in the when we're talking about those smoking indoors at public places like about as part of that is they're Clean Air Act we included baby being. And as well as are some may refer to the east cigarette didn't. And then all go. And then they all. Of those products. Two when we're talking about a that the male age. Hopefully change into a 21. Of tobacco that. We definitely consider. They being a part as. And that nicotine and tobacco use that we want to make sure that we get all the evidence in place before we firmly put all of that information out there. What resources are available for people to to quit smoking . Well the majority of people who use tobacco . Actually do you wanna quit and that is probably news to some folks as well. That we need to think about tobacco use as a chronic relapsing condition and the quitting is not easy and may take several attempts. Which I'm sure you've heard. The tobacco users are few times more likely to quit successfully if they receive help specifically a combination of talent playing and and medication and and then among adult smokers. Apparently an org and you out of three would actually like to quit smoking and that is. A large a number of the population and no one way that we can help tobacco users quit is by funding and statewide. Evidence based tobacco quit line which we do you haven't played them here in organ. I amend the organ backup quit lion offers a variety
