Researchers Call for Tobacco-Free World by 2040 – 12 de marzo de 2015 – UK

Leading public health researchers are calling for the sale of tobacco to be phased out by 2040. 

Writing in the British journal The Lancet, advocates say a tobacco-free world — where less than 5 percent of adults smoke — could be possible in less than three decades.

In a statement ahead of next week's World Conference on Tobacco or Health in Abu Dhabi, lead author Robert Beaglehole from the University of Auckland in New Zealand, said, “A world where tobacco is out of sight, out of mind, and out of fashion — yet not prohibited — is achievable in less than three decades from now, but only with full commitment from governments, international agencies such as the U.N. and WHO, and civil society.”
