N🚫 Tobacco Day.

Tobacco consumption is the leading cause of preventable cancer, with 27% of all cancers attributed to tobacco use.

With , we want to create a Tobacco-Free Generation in which less than 5% of the population uses tobacco by 2040.

@EU_Commission Step 1: No Advertising everywhere would be a good start.

@douginamug @EU_Commission Posting from the EU Commission on the fediverse to celebrate just one day seems very efficient and helpful. /irony off

@f2k1de @EU_Commission Well, here's a link to a communication on the policy

(note to EU commission: please link/reference yourself)

"Advertising" is mentioned 4 times, but not in conjunction with "ban".

@f2k1de just checked some other threads, seems like @EU_Commission is post only.

Well, there is good stuff in the document "tackling advertising" (hopefully that ends up with a ban) and "expanding smoke-free environments, including outdoor spaces".
Let's hope the political will does not bend to big-tobacco's lobby.
@f2k1de @EU_Commission

@EU_Commission What about, a “Poverty-Free” Europe? Just sayin


What about, a “Poverty-Free” Europe? Just sayin

Great idea. But would that mean that every other effort to improve life should be abandoned before poverty is eradicated?

Whataboutism is hardly ever useful.
