[Correspondence] What can Japan learn from tobacco control in the UK?

A Lancet Editorial (July 8, p 96)1 on tobacco control in the UK described how people are protected from second-hand smoke as a result of the country going smoke free in 2007. This is in stark contrast to people in Japan who, unfortunately, are likely to continue to be affected by passive smoking in public spaces for the next decade. Japan, and other countries that are currently struggling to introduce policies for the prevention of second-hand smoke in public places, might be able to learn from the success of tobacco control in the UK.
