World No Tobacco Day

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion -

ON World No Tobacco Day (Satur­day, May 31) we called on the Queens­land Govern­ment to save lives through smoke-free spa­ces. Nine Queens­lan­ders will die to­day from tobacco-re­lated dis­ease and ill­ness. And one of them will die with­out ever hav­ing smoked a cig­a­rette in their life, from the harm­ful ef­fects of sec­ond-hand smoke. If we take ac­tion to­day to in­tro­duce smoke-free malls, bus stops, taxi ranks and ferry ter­mi­nals, more smok­ers will quit, fewer young people will start smok­ing, and all of us will be pro­tected from harm­ful ex­po­sure to tobacco smoke. Please show your sup­port for a smoke-free state by telling your lo­cal MP. To­gether we can cre­ate a smoke-free fu­ture. PRO­FES­SOR JEFF DUNN CEO Cancer Coun­cil Queens­land
