The UN health agency on Tuesday issued its strongest policy recommendations yet for controlling tobacco use, urging all countries to ban smoking at indoor workplaces and in public buildings.
"The evidence is clear. There is no safe level of exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke," said Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organization. Governments should immediately pass laws "requiring all indoor workplaces and public places to be 100 percent smoke-free," she said. – (Sapa-AP)
