By

Our newly posted report, “First quarter 2014 Social Weather Survey: Survey on usage, attitudes and behavior of Filipinos towards smoking” (www.sws.org.ph, 6/18/2014), backs up the Department of Health’s announcement last May 30, the day before World No Tobacco Day, that smoking among the young and the very poor has decreased.
