New Zealand Researchers Call For Tobacco-Free Society
That smoking is a hazardous activity is a well-known fact. Now two researchers from New Zealand are calling for a complete ban on smoking in that country since it affects the poorest who have no funds to get expensive treatments for the same.

University of Otago's Associate Professor Tony Blakely and Dr Nick Wilson say that the New Zealand governments needed to set a time frame to erase smoking completely from the society since the death rates were getting out of control with each passing day. They said that almost half of those who take up smoking die because of it. The total death rates are close to 4500 a year.
