Russia Ready to Crackdown on Smoking  

Jump to full article: RT TV / TV Novosti (ru), 2012-03-29

Intro:

A bill significantly tightening the rules for smoking in public places will be submitted to the Russian parliament this week, the Rossiiskaya Gazeta daily said on Thursday.

The document stipulates a total ban on smoking in restaurants, government, education, medical, cultural and sports facilities as well as work places, including elevators, public transport and in transport terminals. Smokers will be officially allowed to smoke only at home and outdoors.

On Friday, Russia's Chief Sanitation Doctor Gennady Onishchenko said a tough anti-smoking bill should become law despite opposition from business groups.

The plans to toughen regulations for the sale of tobacco and to prohibit smoking in public spaces have been discussed for a long time. In April 2008 Russia joined the WHO convention on tobacco control.

Author: Bryan M. Gold

Intro:

Elk Grove City Council members at their March 28 meeting decided to not pursue citywide restrictions on smoking in apartment complexes.

They instead directed city staff to work with management at senior rental community Renwick Square on smoking regulations.

The council on Sept. 14 adopted changes to the city's municipal code that included language to protect children from the health effects of secondhand smoke.

At that same meeting, Renwick Square resident Mimi Dixon asked the council to consider more restrictions on smoking in senior apartment complexes. She said she could not get her landlord to voluntarily prohibit smoking there.

Half of all cancers are preventable - study  

Jump to full article: Agence France Presse (AFP) (fr), 2012-03-29

Intro:

HALF of all cancers could be prevented if people adopted healthier behaviours, US scientists say.

Smoking is blamed for a third of all US cancer cases and being overweight leads to another 20 per cent of the deadly burden that costs the United States some $226 billion a year in health care expenses and lost productivity.

For instance, up to three quarters of US lung cancer cases could be avoided if people did not smoke, said an article published overnight in the US journal Science Translational Medicine.

Science has shown that plenty of other cancers can also be prevented, either with vaccines to prevent human papillomavirus and hepatitis, which can cause cervical and liver cancers, or by protecting against sun exposure, which can cause skin cancer.

Society as a whole must recognise the need for these changes and take seriously an attempt to instill healthier habits, said the researchers.

"It's time we made an investment in implementing what we know," said lead author Graham Colditz, an epidemiologist at the Siteman Cancer Centre at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.

Exercising, eating right and refraining from smoking are key ways to prevent up to half of the 577,000 deaths from cancer in the United States expected this year, a toll that is second only to heart disease, according to the study.
