Tough new smoking laws soon?

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

And what was your reaction? Laugh, disgust, throw them away?
To be honest, I saw it as yet another reminder that I should start to get serious about quitting. :thumb:

Gotta think that is a good thing. Do the cig makers here use all or many of the same added toxic adulterants to their products? As Phillip Morris, Lorrillard, Imperial , etc. do?

Most brands here (State Express 555, Kent, Alain Delon, Ara, Liberation and National.) are made by British American Tobacco so I presume so.

I don't know about that but the plantations here spray their plants heavily with systemic insecticides'.
As my old Cajun bait seller used to say, "I opes you luck.

No change in tobacco death toll despite efforts
2 October 2018
Some seven million smokers die of tobacco-related illnesses each year. Another 600,000 die from inhaling second-hand smoke. Of these figures, 10,000 are Cambodians.

The figures are from a report entitled Corporate Encouragement of Tobacco Sales and Advertising that was presented at the Cambodia-Korea Cooperation Centre (CKCC) yesterday.

Cambodian Movement for Health Organisation executive director Dr Mom Kong who reported the figures, said it accounted for between 30 and 40 Cambodians dying daily from tobacco-related illnesses.

He said a year-on-year study showed that the number of people who died from cigarette-related causes has not changed much.
