Fumes for Thought-to Ban or Not to Ban Smoking in France
A ban on smoking cigarettes in public places such as offices, restaurants and café's may be implemented soon following the recommendation made by a panel consisting of members from the French parliament.

The panel in its report have stated that about 3000 to 5000 people exposed to passive smoking has succumbed to related illness. This is an unacceptable situation. However a statutory ban on smoking in France could trigger off unsavory resistance from the public at large who were not hitherto bound by any stringent laws according to the Associated Press.

United Kingdom, Ireland, Italy, and Spain are the other European countries that have positively implemented a ban on smoking.
