Doctors Demand Ban On Smoking In Private Cars

By Thomas Moore, health correspondent
SKY NEWS



Doctors have called for a ban on smoking in cars, claiming it exposes people to 23 times more toxins than used to be found in pubs.

The British Medical Association briefing paper claims children are at the highest risk from second-hand smoke because they absorb more pollutants.

The new briefing paper , also said the elderly are vulnerable to respiratory problems caused by passive smoking.

Dr Vivienne Nathanson, the BMA's director of professional activities, said smoking causes over 80,000 deaths every year in England.

"The UK made a huge step forward in the fight against tobacco by banning smoking in all enclosed public places, but more can still be done," she said.

"We are calling on UK governments to take the bold and courageous step of banning smoking in private vehicles. The evidence for extending the smoke-free legislation is compelling."

Earlier this week Northern Ireland Health Minister Edwin Poots said he is considering a ban on smoking in cars.

And a private member's Bill calling for a ban is expected to be debated in Parliament on Friday.

But Simon Clarke, director of smokers' rights group Forest , told Sky News: "Cars are a private space. Will it be a ban on smoking at home next?

"Very few parents smoke when children are in the car. Legislation to ban it is heavy handed and - with everything else going on in the world - an abuse of Parliamentary time."

okay....here we go again.

I just flushed my half a pack of golden benson & hedges cigarettes under running water (I have been known to rescue them and dry them in the oven, but I'll resist)

Work has finished so stress levels are diminished.
The last of my my influx of visitors left this morning, removing the threat of collateral damage.

I feel so sick from smoking...

I'm going to have a shower and brush my teeth.
Swallow some vitamin pills.
Go for a drive.
Keep myself busy.

It's king tide time...highest this afternoon.
I'll take the dog for a walk along the shoreline then, when it's cool, because it's too blistering hot now.


I'm so glad I found this place while I was researcing artistic mad people. I love you

...the oven was too slow, so I heated a pan and dried the tobacco that way. Very strong. Tasted like turkish tobacco.

I wonder what turkish tobacco tastes like

Once I smoked cigarettes that had been wet with whiskey... they tasted awful (have I told this before? scratch )

Thanks so much vera and constance.
The vitamin B's helped to keep my mood stable.

I've been trying to eat sensibly and get plenty of exercise...on my walk today I think I saw a crocodile edgeing out of the water...I peered at it from a distance to make sure it wasn't a log. When it started out of the water I called the dog and hurried away. I remembered reading that over short distances on land they can overtake a horse. I ran then.

I wasn't wearing shoes. That seemed to make it so much worse.

I've never seen a croc so close to town. It's the king tides this month and the saltpans are full at high tide. Where I usually walk is under water.

I'm not going back till everything dries out Shocked
