Leave a comment


” The EU Council has just formally adopted the new Tobacco Products Directive!
Soon the following changes will take place:
(1)   Health warnings will cover 65% of the front and back of tobacco products packages;
(2)   Slim and fancy tobacco products packages will be prohibited;
(3)   All tobacco flavors will be banned immediately after the entry into force of the Directive for cigarettes and roll-your own tobacco. Menthol will be banned from 2020;
(4)   Many harmful addictives will we prohibited;
(5)   Electronic cigarettes will be regulated.
The WHO European Region has one of the highest proportions of deaths attributable to tobacco and we consider this Directive as an important step for diminishing the tobacco epidemic in Europe!
“The long term devastating effects of smoking are clear. But for people with asthma and other respiratory diseases the adverse effect of breathing in tobacco smoke are immediate – it restricts the airways, making it difficult to breathe and causing attacks and exacerbations. We fully support the new provisions as vital measures in protecting the lives of children and adults from tobacco.”, said EFA President, Mrs Breda Flood.”

I like canoeing, photographing, friends, movies, food, humor, and going on trips. I dislike rudeness, dishonesty, violence, nastyness, and people not caring for others. I do not drink much, I do not smoke and I do not do drugs. I love friends who are kind to me and stick with me. If you want to give me a gift, the best gift is to stop smoking and stop using fragranced products. Then you give me health and that dear friend, is the best gift a person can get. It is a gift of love. I got asthma and I am hearing disabled.
