  21. 21. Obviously, I thought during my trip, Indonesia is not a signatory of the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control. However, a little research at my favorite anti-smoking site, the Tobacco Free Centre ( taught me that Indonesia is the ONLY country in South East Asia to not ratify the FCTC.<br />The cost of inaction on tobacco is high.

  29. 29. Tobacco industry marketing endangers women<br />Advertisements falsely link tobacco use with female beauty, empowerment and health.<br />Addiction to tobacco enslaves<br />Addiction disfigures women<br />Advertisements lure women with such misleading identifiers <br />"light“<br />"low-tar“<br />Women often mistakenly believe that "light" means "safer"<br />
  30. 30. Second-hand smoke is particularly worrisome for women<br />In many countries, vastly more men smoke than women, and many of those countries fail to protect nonsmokers adequately.<br />In many countries, women are powerless to protect themselves, and their children, from second-hand smoke.<br />In China – where the vast majority of adult smokers are men – more than half of women of reproductive age are regularly exposed to second-hand smoke, which puts themselves and their unborn babies at risk.<br />
