Smoking Cigarettes and Tobacco Problem in UK

discount virginia cigarettesNew research has revealed that many school kids are endangering their long-term health. A recent study by Cancer Research UK observed that an estimated 157,000 pupils aged between 11 and 15 start smoking yearly in the UK – enough to fill 5,200 classrooms or nearly 14,000 junior football teams. The charity states that these figures show the scale of the smoking problem in the UK and highlight the importance of campaigns to discourage young smokers to quit smoking.

In 2010, the group found that three per cent of all 13-year-olds smoke every day and four per cent declared that they used to have the smoking habit. Half or all long-term smokers will die or tobacco-related diseases and around 100,000 breathe their last breath every year.

Jean King, Cancer Research UK’s director of smoking control, explained: “Far too many minors start smoking yearly. We must act to decrease their number.”

She believes that selling tobacco products in standardised packages will help decrease the tempt of starting smoking and give kids one less reason to smoke a cig.
