Anti-Tobacco World companies plan ban on all cigarette advertisements

Anti-Tobacco companies organized a meeting in order to stop all kinds of advertisements on tobacco and tobacco products. The meeting named ″Achievement of controlling use of tobaccos and remedies″was organized by non-government organizations, WBB Trust, The Union and Manobik at the National Press Club yesterday.

At the meeting were present also Dr Shahadat Hossain, Deputy Secretary, he moderated the meeting, Rafiqul Islam Milon, President of Manobik, Saifuddin Ahmed, Coordinator of Bangladesh Anti Tobacco Alliance, he chaired the meeting.

They required the Government to increase the amount of fine for those persons who will violate the smoking ban, to ban all advertisements of tobacco.

The first tobacco advertising bans were in Italy. Law No.165 of April 10 1962 banned advertising of tobacco products, stating that: "Advertising of any tobacco product, whether domestic of foreign, is forbidden".

But the real battle over tobacco advertising began in France with the Loi Veil in July 1976, which banned tobacco advertising on television, radio, billboards, and movies, though not in magazines nor at sport events.

The members who were present at this meeting said that the agricultural lands are decreased but tobacco cultivations are increased. In this case public health and economy will be affected a lot. They consider that smoking of actors in films also is an advertisement and it must be interdict too.

Television and other media have big influences on adolescents' health and behavior. Exposure to smoking scenes in movies increases the habitual smoking among young people. Anti-Tobacco companies vote for ″Smoke Free Movies″ (SFM).

That's why the Government should ban tobacco products, ads and smoking in movies in order to decrease the cigarettes sales.

The Anti-Tobacco companies say that each country should ban all tobacco advertising in order to decrease smoking among people.

Tobacco smoking kills about 5 million each year; a figure that the World Health Organization says could double to 10 million each year by 2020 if current trends continue.
