The latest news that there is and was a discussion about considering easing the anti-tobacco legislation is worrying.

The practice, so far, of such companies has been to respond to tightening up in the Western world by taking their products to the so-called third world to poison the people and pollute the atmosphere. It is interesting that there is no attempt on their part to campaign for easing anti-tobacco legislation in Ireland or other countries where tobacco smoking is forbidden in public places.It is not possible to contain smoke once it is in the room. If anything, the anti-tobacco legislation has to be tightened even more so there is no smoking at all in restaurants and public drinking places as well as in hospitals and all public places.With the asthma incidence increasing world-wide, it is best to help to lessen it rather than to increase the problem by allowing smoking, even in limited places.It is high time that the tobacco industry is stopped. The fields must be used to produce foods that are rich enough to sustain populations rather than poison them with tobacco that carries many other toxic substances.
