Rebecca Onie asks audacious questions: What if waiting rooms were a place to improve daily health care? What if doctors could prescribe food, housing and heat in the winter? At TEDMED she describes Health Leads, an organization that does just that -- and does it by building a volunteer base as elite and dedicated as a college sports team.

Jessica Green: We're covered in germs. Let's design for that.
Aim: To develop a simulation model projecting the effect of tobacco control policies in the Netherlands on smoking prevalence and smoking-attributable deaths.
Design, setting, and participants: Netherlands SimSmoke an adapted version of the SimSmoke simulation model of tobacco control policy - uses population, smoking rates and tobacco control policy data for the Netherlands to predict the effect of seven types of policies: taxes, smoke-free legislation, mass media, advertising bans, health warnings, cessation treatment, and youth access policies. Measurements: Outcome measures were smoking prevalence and smoking-attributable deaths.
Findings: With a comprehensive set of policies, as recommended by MPOWER, smoking prevalence can be decreased by as much as 21% in the first year, increasing to a 35% reduction in the next twenty years and almost 40% by 30 years. By 2040, 7,706 deaths can be averted in that year alone with the stronger set of policies. Without effective tobacco control policies, almost a million lives will be lost to tobacco-related diseases between 2011 and 2040. Of those, 145,000 can be saved with a comprehensive tobacco control package.
Conclusions: Smoking prevalence and smoking-attributable deaths in the Netherlands can be substantially reduced through tax increases, smoke-free legislation, high intensity media campaigns, stronger advertising bans and health warnings, comprehensive cessation treatment, and youth access laws. The implementation of these FCTC/MPOWER recommended policies could be expected to show similar or even larger relative reductions in smoking prevalence in other countries which currently have weak policies.
