CHINESE DOCTORS ARE THE HEAVIEST SMOKERS FROM ALL DOCTORS IN THE WORLD

Do you know that approximately one-third of the world’s smokers reside in China. where the national smoking prevalence is about 30%. Nearly 800,000 Chinese die each year as a result of smoking, and the number will increase to 2 million by 2025 if current smoking rates continue. Smoking is expected to cause one-third of all deaths among Chinese men by 2030.
Medical interventions can be effective in helping smokers to quit. Not only are physicians primarily responsible for delivering such interventions, they are usually viewed as role models for health-related behavior such as smoking. Although the dangers of smoking are well known throughout the medical profession, physicians do not always set a good example for patients. The World Health Organization (WHO) documents that the prevalence of smoking among physicians in China is 61% for men and 12% for women. Other studies have reported different prevalence rates. For example, a study of 3,553 physicians from 6 Chinese cities reported a smoking prevalence of 23% (men, 41%; women, 1%). In another study of 786 physicians, overall smoking prevalence was 20%. Annually, 76% of smokers are seen by physicians in China, creating an opportunity to counsel patients about quitting. However, few physicians ask about smoking status or advise smokers to quit. Studies showed that less than half of physicians “often” or “always” advise smokers to quit.
A cross-sectional survey was conducted in 5 hospitals in China from March 5 through March 15, 2007. The reported smoking rates ranged from 13% to 57%; such a wide range could be partially explained by geographical and sociocultural variations in China, the year when the study was taking place or the specialty of the physicians. The rates, shown during this survey, are lower than those conducted among physicians in the Netherlands (38%), Japan (34%), and France (32%), but higher than those reported for the USA (3%), New Zealand (5%) and the United Kingdom (7%). It was found that smoking is more prevalent among male than female physicians.
The study showed that physicians who smoke are less likely to believe that health professionals should serve as nonsmoker role models for their patients and the public. It was suggested that interventions aimed at reducing cigarette smoking among physicians would lower the overall smoking rate.
It was found that Chinese physicians lack sufficient knowledge about the health hazards of smoking. They need more education about the link between maternal smoking and neonatal death. In addition, physicians, especially those who smoke, need more education about the links between secondhand smoke and risk of lung disease, heart disease, and lower respiratory tract disease. Incorporating and adapting best practices for counseling patients about cessation into the medical school curriculum may increase knowledge and prevent smoking in young medical students.
The finding that working in a hospital with smoke-free policies was negatively associated with cessation counseling was counterintuitive. In follow-up interviews with key hospital personnel and physicians, it was learned that hospitals with smoke-free policies often did not enforce them. In addition, many physicians in this follow-up did not know whether their hospital was smoke-free. As a result, it was suggested that smoke-free policies need to be better communicated and enforced.
Also it was observed that younger physicians were more likely to follow good cessation counseling practices. Counseling practices may, therefore, improve with time. Continuing education on smoking cessation should be offered to all age groups of physicians, and clinical staff should routinely assess and record the smoking status of every patient in the hospital’s medical record systems as a vital sign.
Asking about smoking (71%) was less common than advising to quit smoking (78%) among the physicians. Although it is consistent with another study among the physicians in China, it is in contrast with studies among the US and Hong Kong physicians. US physicians ask about smoking status during two thirds of all visits, but only advise about 20% of smokers to quit. Similarly, 77% of the Hong Kong physicians usually ask about smoking and only 29% advise smokers to quit. The higher rate of advising to quit than asking about smoking in the current study may be due to the fact that patients raise the issue themselves because of  increased awareness. As many physicians smoke they are reluctant to proactively ask about smoking status of the patients. Also, it is possible that physicians who did advise smokers to quit wished to encourage patients to buy cessation medications. Cessation medications are not subsidized by the health care system; smokers have to buy these medications with their own money. In many cases, physicians get incentives from pharmaceutical companies for prescribing branded medications which might have encouraged physicians to advise their patients to quit and, probably, to suggest buying certain cessation products. In contrast, asking and recording smoking status is not mandatory in the Chinese health care system and there is no incentive for doing so.
Reading any guidelines about counseling patients to quit smoking was positively associated with recording smoking status and advising smokers to quit. However, most guidelines were available in English, but most Chinese physicians cannot read English. A brief Chinese language guideline was developed in 2007 (written communication, Dr Jiang Yuan, Director of the National Tobacco Control Office, China CDC, Beijing, China, June 2008), after this study was completed, and is not yet available to all physicians. In a follow-up investigation, it was found out that most physicians were not aware of this brief Chinese guideline. However, many had heard about the international guidelines, mostly US and UK guidelines, and a few had briefly investigated these international guidelines through the Internet, but did not understand the details of the recommendations because of the language barriers. Hopefully, the developing a national guideline in Chinese and promoting it to the physicians would be useful. Some limitations of this study should be noted. First, the response rate of 85% may have been higher if a second survey would have been delivered. Second, because the survey was anonymous, no information on the characteristics of nonresponding physicians is available, and respondents may have differed from nonrespondents, which may limit the generalizability of the study findings. Finally, respondents may have underreported behaviors viewed as deviant or socially undesirable.
Overall, the findings stress the need to enforce smoke-free hospital policies, to develop a national guideline in Chinese and promote it to the physicians, to increase interventions that will help physicians to quit smoking.

SMOKING CAN BE PROHIBITED IN ALL VEHICLES IN THE UK

The Royal College of Physicians wants England's imminent review of anti-smoking laws to include such measures to protect the children. They declare that passive smoking leads to 300,000 extra child visits to General Practitioners in the UK yearly related to such health diseases as asthma and bacterial meningitis.
Smoking in the Car
However driving and smoking lobby groups insist that cars are a “private space”.
A number of medical bodies have supported a ban on smoking in cars transporting children, but the RCP goes a considerable step further, demanding a blanket ban on anyone lighting up in a vehicle - regardless of whether kids or indeed any other passengers are inside.
Several surveys have been conducted by RCP related to the second-hand smoke. As a result Passive Smoking and Children Report has been issued. The report suggests that in the UK, tens of thousands of children get sick as a result of exposure to cigarette smoke.
Therefore RCP is calling for a two-pronged approach which would see children protected from second-hand smoke and shielded from the sight of adults smoking
- whether in the playground or on the TV.
It was discovered that second hand smoke causes 300,000 visits to a GP - some of which end up in hospital - costing the NHS £23.3m.
The report does concede that these figures are only estimates, but says it is confident they give an "indication" of the number of children who get sick.
The physicians confess that a ban on smoking at home would be neither politically or practically possible, as it is an intervention in the private sphere of each person, however the car is a mobile vehicle which can interfere with the private space of the other person, who doesn't have to tolerate it.
The report argues that the only way to make it practically enforceable would be to perform it as a blanket ban on all private vehicles - regardless of their passengers, as exemptions would prove too complex.
In addition, it makes recommendations to reduce the burden of passive smoking on children:
  • Campaigns to explain to parents the importance of a smoke-free home
  • Cigarette tax increases
  • Generic cigarette packaging
  • Reducing the number and accessibility of tobacco retailers to children, imposing strict penalties on those who sell to children
  • Wide extension of smoke free legislation are also among the recommendations issued and so on
“This report isn't just about protecting children from passive smoking, it's about taking smoking completely out of children's lives," says Professor John Britton, head of the college's Tobacco Advisory Group and lead author of the report.
However it is not surprisingly that driving and smoking lobby groups shows their anger at the recommendations, arguing that legally it is prohibited to issue laws regulating every aspect of adult's behaviour.
Simon Clark, of Forest, which campaigns for smokers' rights, questioned the figures used in the report, noting that cases of asthma had been rising as the number of smokers had fallen.
"It's unacceptable to single out smokers and imply that they are solely responsible for the cost of asthma treatments, hospital admissions and asthma drugs for children up to the age of 16.”
"We want smokers to be considerate towards those around them, especially children, but changing people's behavior should be achieved by education and encouragement not by legislation and enforcement."
Nigel Humphries, spokesman for the Association of British Drivers, said the car should be seen as an extension of the home and treated as such. "The car is a private space and it crosses a line to start interfering in it, however much one disapproves of smoking."

Pall Mall Cigarettes Brand History



The world’s first-ever king-sized (85 mm) non-filtered cigarette was introduced in 1939 by the American Tobacco Company, a brand extension to the regular-sized Pall Mall which was introduced forty years earlier by Brand Pall Mall (Butler & Butler / A.T.C.) Today, Pall Mall "Famous Cigarettes" remain synonymous with quality. Filtered Pall Mall cigarettes have a smooth strong taste and are packed very tightly with tobacco making them burn slower and last longer than most other major brands. The consumer is paying less than premium price, but gets a longer smoke with a soft, pleasant taste and that is the key to the Pall Mall brand's success.

Pall Mall Non-Filter is still made today. Filtered versions of Pall Mall have come and gone, beginning in 1966 with the introduction of Pall Mall Gold (the world’s first 100 mm cigarette). Filtered Pall Mall was relaunched in the United States in the early 2000s, and are still available.

Pall Mall is widely available in many countries, including Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Malaysia, Russia, South Korea, Sweden, Switzerland, and the Ukraine. In Canada, Pall Mall Non-Filter King Size was made in Canada beginning circa 1961 by Imperial Tobacco Canada,   where it was sold until it was withdrawn (along with Imperial’s other American-blend brands) in 1994. Imperial relaunched Pall Mall in Red (full flavour) and Blue (light) in the mid-2000s, and in 2011, launched Pall Mall with a charcoal filter under the names Black and Silver.

In the United States, the American Tobacco Company was taken over by the Brown and Williamson Tobacco Company in 1994; Brown and Williamson, in turn, was taken over by R. J. Reynolds Tobacco in 2004, forming the company Reynolds American, which still make Pall Mall today.

Winston Cigarettes History



Winston cigarettes were introduced in 1954 by R.J.Reynolds Tobacco Company and became the first nationally popular filtered cigarette. The cigarettes derive their name from the town in which RJR is based: Winston-Salem, North Carolina. Winston became the best-selling brand of cigarettes in the United States. It held the

N1 spot from 1966 to 1975.

In 1999, Winston-Salem introduced a new cigarette to the Eastern European market, the Winston One Cigarette. The cigarette got its name from having only one mg of tar, yet having a full mg of nicotine. Eastern European smokers were not satisfied with the new cigarette, sales began to drop, and the line was discontinued in 2001. Since then Winston One has been marketed as an ultra-light cigarette currently available on the European market. This product features a very low 0.1 mg of tar per cigarette. This is one of the lowest in the marketplace, especially in Eastern Europe.

Between 1972 and 2003, Winston was known for its sponsorship of NASCAR's premier championship, the Winston Cup. The brand also sponsored both IHRA and NHRA drag racing.

In the early part of the 21st century, Winston is still one of the top 10 brands in the U.S due to very successful Winston's promotional events, class if its tobacco and pure American spirit. Winston cigarettes are made in the best American tradition. Delicate combination of soft flavor and original aroma of the bouquet in tobacco's blend expresses the exquisite simplicity and harmony characteristic for modern culture.

Between 1972 and 2003, Winston was known for its sponsorship of NASCAR's premier championship, the Winston Cup. The brand also sponsored both IHRA and NHRA drag racing.

Today Winston cigarettes are sold in 80 countries and are the fourth in sales among international tobacco brands.

Camel Cigarettes Brand History...



Camel cigarettes were introduced in the United States in 1913 by the R. J. Reynolds Tobacco Company. A pioneering brand in the American marketplace, it became Reynolds' first major cigarette brand and the first nationally marketed cigarette in the United States. It was the first cigarette in the United States to use a blend of Turkish, Virginia, and Burley tobaccos, which proved to be enormously popular with the smoking public and would spawn many competitors (the first of which, Lucky Strike, was introduced in 1916). Camels were also the first manufactured cigarette to be sold in packages of twenty--prior to 1913, cigarette smokers rolled their own, and there was thought to be no market for pre-made cigarettes.
One part of Camel's success was the combination of high quality tobaccos along with the brand's low price (originally 10 cents for a package of 20). Until the 1950s, Camels were consistently the top- or second-selling brand (Lucky Strikes being their nearest competition). Indeed, the city of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where the R. J. Reynolds factory was located, was nicknamed "Camel City" owing to the brand's popularity. Their blend was harmonized in a way that provided a balanced nicotine content and which smoked considerably easier in contrast to the much harsher brands popular in the 1910s and 1920s.
Before their official launch, Reynolds launched a careful advertising campaign incorporating 'teasers' which stated that "the Camels are coming!" This new marketing style was, in fact, a prototype for attempts to sway public opinion and to generate excitement. Another promotional strategy employed was the use of a circus camel, named Old Joe, which was driven through towns and villages by men who distributed free cigarettes.
Old Joe was used as the model for the camel on the package. It's interesting to note that though Old Joe was of Egyptian origin, Turkish archives make the claim that the camel on the package is a symbol of gratitude by the Americans to the Turkish for the latter's donation of 34 camels to the American Army in 1854.
Advertising has been a key feature of Camel's success over the years. Famous advertising themes and slogans from years past include "the 'T' Zone (T for taste and T for throat)," "more doctors smoke Camels than ever before!," "I'd walk a mile for a Camel!," and "Camel's real taste satisfies longer." In 1987, an advertising firm created Joe Camel, a cartoon-ish version of the camel which appeared on the packaging. The character became something of a focal point for anti-smoking groups, claiming that Reynolds Tobacco were slyly marketing their cigarettes to children; indeed, a 1991 study from the American Medical Association found that children recognized Joe Camel more than they did Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, and Barbie. The mascot was retired from use in 1997.
From 1972-1993, Camel was the title sponsor of the popular International Motor Sports Association auto racing series known as the Camel GT. It also sponsored the Lotus Formula One team from 1987 to 1991, and the Benneton and Williams teams from 1991 to 1993. Also during the nineties, Camel sponsored the factory Honda team in the AMA Superbike series and the Supercross Championships.
Nowadays, Camel cigarettes represent three different families of flavor--Classic, Turkish, and Exotic Blends. The Classic styles, which represent the bulk of the brand's business, offer rich tobacco taste. Camel cigarettes' Turkish family offers smooth and mellow versions of the brand's distinctive flavor. Camel Exotic Blends, a line of premium-priced, limited-edition luxury blends, offer adult smokers indulgent taste signatures.
Camel is today one of the top five global cigarette brands, sold in over 90 countries worldwide. For the Canadian market, they have been imported from the United States by J. T. I. Macdonald, which was formerly owned by R. J. Reynolds. While the non-filtered variety is no longer available for sale in Canada, the filter and light varieties are still for sale.

Marlboro Cigarettes History...



Marlboro is the most world-wide known cigarette brand made by Altria Group, Inc. previously named Philip Morris Companies Inc... Philip Morris Companies Inc. changed its name to Altria Group, Inc. on January 27, 2003. Originally Marlboro was exposed in 1847 at the London market but soon repositioned in the US. The greatest tobacco products' brand is named after Great Marlborough Street where its original London factory was situated.
When the Cigarette brand first emerged on the market in 1920, they were marketed to women. The ads featured women and held the slogan "Mild as May." One of the traits of Marlboro cigarettes at that period was a red tip, which concealed women's lipstick marks. This approach was successful until World War II (1939-45), when slow sales caused Marlboro packs to be withdrawn from the market. The cigarettes were revived in the 1950s, as the first medical research linking cigarette smoking with cancer began to reach the public. It was thought that Marlboro cigarettes, with their filter, might offer smokers the illusion of a reduced health risk. However, the filter was regarded as effeminate by many men, who made up the bulk of the market.
In 1954, the Leo Burnett Company, a Chicago advertising agency, was given the task of making Marlboro cigarettes appealing to men. The result was the "tattooed man" campaign. It involved a series of print ads showing a man with a tattoo on his hand holding a Marlboro. The man would be one of several "manly" types, such as a policeman, a firefighter, a construction worker or a cowboy. The agency studied consumer response, and the cowboy figure proved to be the most popular. By 1957, the cowboy had replaced all of the others.
In 1960 Philip Morris and Thomas Hutzler invented "Marlboro Country" with American Western landscapes and a rugged cowboy. The Marlboro Man has displayed the distinctive red Marlboro cigarette pack for almost fifty years - on billboards, in store window displays, and on the pages of magazines and newspapers. The Marlboro Man could also be seen on television, usually accompanied by the rousing musical theme from the Western film "The Magnificent Seven", until the government ban on cigarette commercials in 1972. The Marlboro Man in the "Marlboro Country" series of advertisements was instrumental in establishing Philip Morris' Marlboro brand as the world's best-selling cigarette. There were dozens of men, many of whom were real cowboys who modeled for the Marlboro advertising campaign and two of those men, both long-time smokers have died of cancers which began in their lungs. Wayne McLaren, a former professional rodeo rider, who appeared in small parts in various television series and movies (primarily Westerns) throughout the 1960s and 1970s and posed for some promotional photographs on behalf of Marlboro in 1976 , succumbed to lung cancer in July 1992. David McLean, who appeared in many Marlboro television and print advertisements starting in the early 1960s, also died of cancer in October 1995. McLean starred in the short-lived 1960 television Western Tate, and he played roles in numerous television series and feature films during the 1960s and 1970s.
Marlboro Cigarettes are often called in slang as "cowboy killers" through the strength of the red variety of Marlboro cigarettes and owing to Marlboro Man. In August 2006 a US District Court prohibited to use the terms like "low tar", "light", "mild" or "natural" and it is expected to use standard "color" names instead: Marlboro Red, Marlboro Gold(Light), and Marlboro Silver(Ultra Light), which are already in use in the European Union since 2005.

What About Cheap Cigarettes and the Price- Quality of Those...

 Adherence to privacy, tax and age-related legalities by online cheap cigarette sellers, in addition to secure transactions, are what made them popular for buying cigarettes cheap. Buying cheap discount cigarettes is no more a taboo following recent hikes in taxes hitting all those who smoke. Regardless of your brand of cigarette, it sure must have burnt a hole in your pocket, making everyone wish those tax free days were back. 
How Cheap Are Cheap Discount Cigarettes?
It may surprise you, but buying cheap Marlboro cigarettes online can save you almost 1/3rd in most states. It isn’t just Marlboro that has become cheap online; buy any of your favorite brands for that matter, such as Marlboro, Camel, Winston, Virginia Slims, Salem, Kent, Barclay, Carlton, etc., and you will save a huge sum if you are buying in bulk. If you were paying $40-$45 per carton of Marlboro earlier, cheap discount cigarettes can be bought at $25 or less. Buying cheap cigarettes in bulk also has another benefit in that you don’t run out of stock frequently, which, otherwise, always occurs at unfortunate times.
Cheap Cigarettes and the Price/Quality Ratio
Let me begin by asking where do you get menthol tobacco cigarettes fresh and cheap; online or offline? Of course, you may be satisfied with your neighbourhood store, but think for a minute: all consumables grow stale over time sitting on the shelf. But what with low or no taxes (in certain Indian settlements) being levied on online cheap cigarette shops, smokers tend to buy more in bulk than otherwise, which saves them a small fortune both ways. The constant movement of this kind of bulk stock emphasizes three critical points about quality:
  • that buying discount cigarettes is really cheap
  • stocks are more frequently replenished than in an offline shop
  • the greater the sales, the stronger is the smokers’ acceptance of quality
So How to Contrast the Cheap Cigarettes against Those Bought From a Corner Shop As Regards to Price/Quality Ratio
To begin with, let’s assume the qualities of cheap cigarettes purchased online are on par with cigarettes from a neighbourhood retail store. But in the bargain, you will have paid less money per carton/stick bought online. The ‘cheap cigarettes and the price/quality ratio’ comes under suspicion only if your consignment isn’t delivered in good shape or within the specified time. So, the first thing you need to check is whether the packaging is intact and whether moisture had entered inside. You can also check individual packs for manufacturing dates.
Now that selling cheap cigarettes like Marlboro, Virginia Slims, L & M or Kent online is commonplace, the apprehension about its legality isn’t a deterring factor anymore. Given the issue of quality being settled, the increased taxes are the things that matter most to a regular smoker, especially if he/she were living in states like New Jersey, Rhode Island, Washington, Michigan and Arizona, where the tax increases are over $2.00 per pack. The issue of quality is by far a foregone conclusion when online retailers are also buying from the very same tobacco manufacturers as do their offline counterparts.
Once you are assured about quality, buying cheap cigarettes online will win you over and what matters is the money you can save over the long term.
