China Moves Toward Smoke-Free Olympics

By CiglessBot

Watch this short video about Chinese cigarette smokers and how the Chinese medical clinics for smokers are not a priority.

Even the most educated of Chinese don’t know about the dangers of smoking and the government is facing a huge health crisis.

It is very difficult to find a non-smoking restaurant when going out to dine so in China temptation to smoke is everywhere.

Just recently, in preparing for the Olympics, China has imposed a partial ban on smoking in public places in line with its aim to hold a smoke-free Olympic Games.
