Musician Stands Up For A Good Cause
Atlanta Boogie Band’s Mike Bourne Joins the SmokeFree Atlanta Clean Air Campign
Songwriter, performer, musician and Atlanta Boogie Band leader – Mike Bourne knows a good thing when he sees one. That’s why the well known Atlanta area musician is excited about joining a coalition of organizations and individuals supporting the SmokeFree Atlanta Campaign.
Mike Bourne has a good idea of how important this issue is. “If you do a hundred engagements a year in venues where there is smoke,” states the talented musician. “You may be at risk. I do a hundred gigs a year.” Mr. Bourne also realizes and speaks out for those who work daily in smoke filled bars and restaurant environments.
According to the United States Surgeon General – there is no safe level of exposure of second hand smoke. “People who work in bars don’t have a choice,” explains Mike Bourne. “They have to work and they should not have to endure second hand smoke.” The Surgeon General also says that brief exposure to second hand smoke can have adverse effects on the cardiovascular system after only 30 minutes of exposure.
