Due to the measures taken in order to quit smoking, the survey made a score of 83% of homes, which are smoke free today in the U.S. This is a great achievement and the officials are really excited and happy about it.
After looking at the success, they do not wish to step back and are striving to continue this. Lots of awareness programs are conducted in the nation, that displays the hazardous effects of smoking. These programs are short clips that are shown in theatres, cinemas, railway stations etc.
Brian King, a lead author of this study said; “It’s a shift in social norms. People no longer see smoking around non-smokers as socially acceptable behavior. We know there is no safe level of secondhand smoke. The ultimate goal is to not expose people to a known carcinogen.”
On the other hand, this has no doubt, affected the business of cigarette companies badly. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have urged the government to ban the attractive packing, labels and advertisements of smoking. This has also contributed to a great extent in the ban on smoking habits.
