Smoking and sheesha are found be major risk factors for several life threatening diseases, especially cancer. About 70 percent of the cancer cases all over the world are directly linked to smoking and other lifestyle factors.
Qatar has already banned smoking in offices and public places, sale of tobacco products near schools and other educational institutions also remains banned. However, the ban has not been implemented effectively in the absence of stringent regulations.
Wonder what will happen to all those smokers in malls if Qatar actually steps up its enforcement of bans!
