Anti-smoking advertisements to be funded by Cigarette manufacturers
Anti-tobacco campaign is gearing up worldover, as the australian health minister has announced yesterday, that nicotine free gum will be provided to all patients visiting queensland hospital as a reform to encourage people to quit smoking following which the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has asked the cigarette manufacturers to sponsor anti-smoking advertising.

Cigaretter manufacturers in a plan to boost cigarettee smoking is marketing cigarettes with different labels codes falsely marketing cigarettes with different concentration of tar and tobacco, encouraging people to opt for mild tobacco cigaretees misleading them about the ill effects of smoking but the reality being they don't have any difference in their contents and harmful effects. The ACCC has asked the cigarette manufactures to fund $9 million for this anti-smoking advertising campaign.
