Teenage Smoking In a society where it is not unordinary to see a ten year old child smoking a cigarette in public, where large tobacco companies sponsor all big sporting events and where smoking advertisements are everywhere you look, how can it be understood that what is going on is a form of suicide.

Tobacco Canada has one of the world's toughest antismoking campaign. They have passed laws against tobacco advertising and have used virtually all of the Presidents proposals against tobacco.

Thanks to these measures, Garfield Mahood, Executive Director of the Toronto based Non-Smokers Rights Association., said, " Canada has had world precedent-setting declines in teen smoking." Between 1979 and 1989, the number of teens aged 15 to 19 who smoked at least occasionally was halved to 23%. In contrast U.S. efforts have been a hug ...
