Lifting the smokescreen: 10 reasons for going smokefree

Lifting the smokescreen: 10 reasons for going smokefree was published and launched at the European Parliament in March 2006.

The report shows that passive smoking currently kills 79,000 European Union (EU) citizens a year: 72,000 of these deaths are due to second-hand smoke (SHS) exposure at home and 7,000 are due to SHS exposure at work. The report also found that, based on current EU smoking prevalence levels and the impact of the smoking ban in Ireland, and if all countries brought in and enforced Irish-style bans, about 5-10 million smokers would give up smoking.
