Tobacco Warning For India's Young
« on: March 21, 2008, 08:10:13 AM »
Nearly one in five school children in India use some form of tobacco, according to a survey conducted by the World Health Organisation.

A national smoking ban has meanwhile cut passive smoking by almost 10%.

The figures are part of the second-ever Global Youth Tobacco Survey, carried out in 140 countries.

The Indian report, released by Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss, polled 12,000 students and 3,000 school staff in the first half of 2006.
