New Passive Smoking Campaign Launches
The government has unveiled the first advertising campaign to highlight the "invisible dangers" of passive smoking.
A poll of 1,600 people last month found that 90% thought passive smoking was harmful, but over half would still smoke in a room where non-smokers were present.
Public Health Minister Caroline Flint said: "Smoking is harmful not just to smokers but to the people around them.
"What this new campaign brings home very clearly is the full impact of second-hand smoke."
And she urged people to give up smoking ahead of the ban coming into place in England in July, which will outlaw smoking in all enclosed public places, such as pubs, restaurants and shops.
"Their bronchial tubes and lungs are smaller and immune systems less developed, making them more vulnerable to the toxins in the smoke."
