Campaign launched to stop smoking

30th December 2013 | No Smoking Signs

Public Health England has launched a new campaign aimed to discourage people from smoking, and help those who already do to quit.

The Smokefree Health Harms campaign focuses on the harm that smoking can immediately do to the body, and the toxic nature of cigarette smoke. In particular, the damage caused by the arsenic and cyanide in cigarettes is being highlighted.

Employers are being encouraged to spread the message in the workplace, using no smoking signs or other resources. Smoking costs UK employers billions each year due to cigarette breaks and time off for medical reasons.

It is also “the major cause of premature death” in the UK, “with one in two smokers dying prematurely from smoking-related diseases”, according to Professor Sally Davies, chief medical officer for England.

The campaign will run adverts on TV from December 30th to encourage smokers to quit. It is hoped that many will take this opportunity to break the habit.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801676837-ADNFCR
