smoking

It makes me angry and sad to see children sitting in a car with smoking adults.

The toxic fumes deployed from smoking in a car are 11 times more concentrated than lighting up in an open space.

A Department of Health survey found 300,000 children a year visited GPs in England with problems linked to second-hand smoke.

Passive smoking is linked to respiratory infections such as pneumonia and chest infections in youngsters. It can also trigger asthma attacks and contribute to sudden unexpected infant death.

England and Wales will become only the second and third countries in Europe to prohibit smoking in cars carrying children. Cyprus already has such a ban. The Welsh government announced in July that it planned to bring in a ban; that is now expected to come into force on the same date as England’s. France is also considering a ban.

Australia and South Africa have also outlawed smoking in such circumstances, as have 10 of Canada’s 13 provinces and territories, and at least four of the 50 states in the US.

Isn’t it high time for all countries to take action!
