Cigarettes banned!

Cigarettes bannedCigarette advertisements are now being banned on radio, print ads, television and other forms of advertisement. This is in accordance with Tobacco Regulation Act of 2003 or Republic Act No. 9211. The number of people who are smoking are now increasing especially to the young people. If no actions will be made, this will continue to rise which is not good. Cigarette companies and even the people are already aware of the effects that they can get such as lung cancer and emphysema. Why do they still sell cigarettes? Indonesia, Cambodia, Burma (Myanmar), Malaysia and Philippines are among of those top ten advertisers in cigarettes. The banned of cigarettes on advertisements can help lessen the population of people who smoke. Hopefully not only on advertisements cigarettes will be banned but also the manufacturing and selling of cigarettes should be stop!!!
