I find this story about Asian teen smokers very disturbing:
500,000 Asian Youth Targeted by Tobacco Companies: WHO.
It's bad enough that our own teens are smoking. But, when Asian teens bent on adopting Western ways think there is something glamorous about smoking, something needs to be done about marketing tobacco to young folks. Frankly, I wouldn't mind seeing cigarett manufacturers put out of business. Somehow, though, I doubt that's going to happen any time soon.
How do you influence a teen positively, when peer pressure is so strong against you?
