It's okay to say you mindI learned from the Department of Health website that May 31, 2005 is “World No Tobacco Day.” Looks like the event wasn’t publicized since I haven’t heard any news about it.

At the site, there’s also a signature campaign in support of Senator Flavier’s bill 1554: Stop for Health Act (Stop Tobacco and Other Products for Health)–which, I later learned, is already a law called Tobacco Regulation Act of 2003.

Obviously the health department’s site, which also contains a web page about smoking and its effects on the body, isn’t too updated. Let’s hope the next health secretary will work on improving the website.
