World's first-ever anti-smoking treaty (4)

Smoking is quite hazardous especially when you take into account the
fact that in many developing countries there are already existing air
borne diseases. Cigarette smoke works synergistically with other en-
vironmental-borne air disturbances like residence-based damps and
fuel refinery sites to destroy the normal airways and lungs integ-
rity, thus making the subjects susceptible to lung infections. The
situation is worse to HIV/AIDS patients and mine workers. So the gov-
ernment should try to add a caption on the present warning that tries
to emphasize caution among immunosuppressed and at risk individuals.
