Tougher tobacco rules urged7th July 2008
Doctors have said at the BMA's annual conference that "tougher" rules should be put in place in order to discourage UK smokers.
The BMA said that media portrayals of smoking should be more tightly controlled. Dr Vivienne Nathanson, the BMA's head of science and ethics, said: "The long-term trends for people quitting have slowed down in recent years so it is essential that further action is taken to promote a tobacco-free lifestyle that deglamourises smoking".
