This new bill could wipe out smoking – the only losers would be those who profit from it

Smoking addiction affects many, with about 80,000 deaths yearly in the UK. Smoking-related diseases heavily impact deprived areas. Proposals in a tobacco bill aim to create a smoke-free generation, banning sales to under 15s, supported by health professionals and the public. This move can reduce lung cancer, heart diseases, and birth complications over time. The tobacco industry's tactics to promote addiction are concerning, despite evidence showing control measures reduce illegal sales. The bill's approval could significantly improve public health by preventing future diseases and reducing health inequalities for children.
