Abstract

The number of people in the United Kingdom who smoke has been gradually declining since the 1970s. Smoking cigarettes is associated with a number of health problems such as lung cancer, coronary heart disease, chronic obtrusive pulmonary disease, strokes, and oral cancer. Furthermore, second hand smoke and toxic residue on furniture and floors (third hand smoke) pose risk to people’s health. Cigarette smoke is the leading cause of preventable death in the UK, costing the NHS an estimated £2.7 billion in 2006, a rise of a round £1b in the course of a decade.
