The National Safety Council has announced two new anti-smoking policies in recognition of the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services' initiative towards its recognition of the prevention of underage tobacco use.
The first policy looks at the significant health and safety issues caused by cigarette smoking, as well as exposure to secondhand smoke, and recommends six tobacco control measures. The second policy focuses on electronic nicotine delivery systems, such as e-cigarettes, which have sparked public health concerns particularly when it comes to teens.
Trends in tobacco use over the last half-century indicate that eliminating smoking is possible, and that aggressive anti-smoking policies can be effective.
