Excerpt
In the 18 years since the World Health Organization (WHO) launched its campaign against tobacco it has become increasingly clear that control of the smoking epidemic is both a health and a political issue. As the evidence has mounted on the dangers to health from using tobacco, the multinational tobacco companies have increased their resistance to measures designed to reduce consumption. Governments are thus caught in a cleft stick between the health needs of their people and powerful political and economic interests - the interests of the tobacco industry and also perceived interests of their own. To counter these political influences pitted against people's health, governments have turned increasingly to legislation to establish policies and programmes that will serve as a countervailing force to the smoking epidemic. A good example is the programme Europe Against Cancer, launched in 1986 by the Commission of the European Communities (CEC). This programme gives high priority to tobacco control and includes strong legislative directives to strengthen and harmonize anti-tobacco policies among the Member States of the European Community.
