Anti-passive smoking ad unveiled
Europe is currently experiencing a wave of anti-smoking sentiment. This wave has finally reached the UK and in July 2007, smoking will be banned in England too. A new anti-smoking advert focuses on the serious danger of passive smoking, especially on its effect on children. However, the director of the smokers’ lobby, "Forest", claims that the ad is mere propaganda – he sees no evidence that second-hand smoke is harmful to non-smokers.
