1000 children attend anti smoking conference

By B.BYAMBADORJ

On January 19, female members of the State Great Khural organized 1,000 children’s conference (consisting of students from 34 public schools) titled “Adolescents who Denied Cigarettes.”
During the development of the renewed law on cigarettes last autumn, it was found that children, women and adolescents aged from 15 to 18 who do not smoke become victim of negative effects of smoking. Thus, female State Great Khural members – who developed the law – decided to cooperate with the Union of Mongolia Students. The focus of the conference is to stop the spreading habit of smoking.
The newly approved law on cigarettes was discussed and introduced to the students during the conference, as well as the effects of smoking and methods to prevent and quit smoking.
According to a study presented at the conference, one out of every 4 people in UB smokes several cigarettes a day. Additionally, it was found that 42 percent of adults and 54 percent of children who do not smoke involuntarily become victims (passive smoking) of smoking.
