Position of IOA on Smoking
The IOA joins with the International Union Against Cancer (UICC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) in their efforts to discourage and reduce the use of all Tobacco products recognising that medical evidence clearly demonstrates the existence of a definable link between the incidence of bladder and colon cancer and the use of tobacco products.
We also recognise the serious danger to non-smokers from second-hand smoke and recommend that All Work Places, Meeting Venues, sports and Social Functions be Smoke - free.
