Smoking Set to Be Banned Across Philippines

A nationwide smoking ban is set to take place across the Philippines, according to the Independent. The rules, drawn up in an executive order by the country’s president, will end smoking in all public places, indoor and outdoor — even in private vehicles.

This good news — that at least one country in the world will soon be smoke-free — follows on the heels of a recent study which found that smoking damages your DNA for decades, and increases your risk of several diseases. Researchers have known that smoking alters your DNA methylation, but this particular study demonstrated how long those changes last and how widespread they may be.

These changes link gene expression from methylation to both the development of cancers and the expression of cardiovascular disease. In pregnant women, it also affects the development of chronic disease when the child grows to adulthood.

Nearly 40 million adults in the U.S. smoke cigarettes, and smoking is the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S. If you want to quit smoking, you can begin by reading through my comprehensive free nutrition plan to get started eating right, developing a well-rounded exercise program that includes a high-intensity interval workout and engaging in a healthy emotional outlet such as meditation or relaxation techniques like turbo-tapping, an emotional freedom technique that can help clear out emotional blockages that can keep you from fighting the urge to smoke.

Recognizing things that trigger your urge to smoke and preplanning healthier and alternate distractions also can help.
