禁菸新法將上路 S.H.E當拒菸大使
[2008.12.02]

記者戴淑芳/台北報導

 「菸害防制法」新制自 98年 1月 11日起實施,正式朝「無菸台灣」的願景邁進, S.H.E昨天也應董氏基金會之邀擔任拒菸大使,拍攝拒菸電視公益廣告,高聲疾呼:「無菸台灣 Yes, We Can!」

 明年 1月實施的菸害防制法新規定,對室內公共場所和工作場所都有嚴格的禁菸規定, S.H.E昨天也擔任拒菸大使,參與「 2009無菸台灣 全民總動員」行動,拍攝新法宣導電視公益廣告,衛生署署長葉金川特別到片場,感謝 S.H.E百忙之中為新法拍攝公益廣告。

 葉金川表示,根據國民健康局的調查顯示, 2007年職場的二手菸暴露率是 34.5%,雖然和 2005年的 38.6%相比有下降趨勢,但仍有相當大的進步空間,而 2007年室內公共場所的二手菸暴露率也有 34.9%,換言之,國人出入工作場所或室內公共場所,平均每三次就會有一次遭受二手菸害。

  Selina表示,因為工作需要經常進出機場,時常看到一群人在吸菸室裡吞雲吐霧,直覺這根本是自殺,很多人都是年紀大、健康出現問題才開始戒菸,希望現在的年輕人引以為戒,不要開始吸菸,就不必經歷這一切。

  Hebe和 Ella也說,自小就被訓練當拒菸糾察隊, Hebe負責叫爸爸不准抽菸,還把爸爸的整條菸拿去藏起來或是丟掉,終於讓爸爸臣服,脫離癮君子的行列; Ella也經常向爸爸和弟弟耳提面命吸菸的壞處,爸爸經不起寶貝女兒的疲勞轟炸,終於發憤戒菸成功,而弟弟也逐漸在擺脫菸癮當中。

 資深媒體人趙怡則是有感其長兄趙寧罹癌驟逝,慷慨解囊贊助「 2009無菸台灣 全民總動員」專案;他以戒菸過來人的身分表示,禁菸新法對於癮君子其實是一種福音,因為吸菸者不需要像他一樣,等到健康遭受威脅才知道戒菸的重要,而是大環境本身的規範和氛圍,就可以激發吸菸者想戒菸的念頭。

 董氏基金會董事長謝孟雄表示,全球已有 69個國家或地區實施「無菸環境」政策,董氏基金會與其他民間團體經過多年推動修法的努力,終於促使台灣將在明年 1月與國際接軌,正式實施「室內無菸環境」。

 終身義工孫越指出,自民國 73年起投入「人人有權拒吸二手菸」,至今已 24個年頭,終於看到台灣隨著明年禁菸新法的實施,朝著「無菸環境」邁進一大步;感謝演藝圈有年輕後輩 S.H.E的投入,在人前人後都努力宣導菸害,希望每一個國民也都能發揮這樣的精神,向「無菸台灣」的願景邁進。

New Law Banning Smoking Soon to be Launched
S.H.E Becomes Ambassadors against Smoking

[2008.12.02]

The new law for banning smoking will be coming into effect starting January 11, 2009. This will formally pave the way to a [Smoke-Free Taiwan]. Yesterday, S.H.E accepting the invitation from the Tungs Foundation to be Ambassadors against Smoking, filmed a public service TV announcement against smoking and loudly urged everyone: [Smoke-Free Taiwan, Yes, We Can!]

The new law that will be in effect starting next January is a strict regulation for banning smoking in indoor public areas and workplaces. Yesterday, as Ambassadors Against Smoking, S.H.E participated into the [2009 All Citizens for a Smoke-Free Taiwan] function and filmed a public service TV announcement to promote the new law. Health Minister Ye Jin-chuan made a special visit to the studio to thank S.H.E for taking time out from their busy schedule to film the public service announcement.

Ye Jin-chuan indicated that according to studies by the National Health Ministry, the exposure rate to second-hand smoke at the workplace in 2007 was 34.5%. Although this number seemed to have decreased when compared to the 38.6% in 2005, there was still much room for improvement. In 2007, the exposure rate to second-hand smoke at indoor public areas was 34.9%. In other words, when in the workplace or at indoor public areas, on average, each person is exposed to second-hand smoke one out of every three times.

Selina indicated that because of work, she traveled through airports frequently and often saw a group of people lighting up and puffing away in the smoking lounge. Her first instinct was that the behavior was basically suicidal. Many people started to quit smoking only when they aged and beginning to have health problems. She hoped that the young people of today would take the warning to heart because if they do not start to smoke, then they would not have to experience all that.

Hebe and Ella also said that since childhood, they were trained to be cigarette police. Hebe was responsible for reminding her father not to smoke. She even hid a whole carton of her fathers cigarettes or threw them away. Finally she convinced her father to leave the addiction behind. Ella also often reminded her father and her younger brother about the harmful effects of smoking. Her father was not able to withstand her constant lectures and eventually was successful in kicking the smoking habit. As for her younger brother, he too was in the process of quitting smoking.

Veteran media personality Chao Yi generously donated to the plan for [2009 All Citizen for a Smoke-Free Taiwan] because his brothers passing from cancer. As an ex-nicotine addict, he indicated that the new ban against smoking was actually a blessing because smokers would no longer be like him who waited until his health was threatened before realizing the importance of quitting smoking. Now smokers would be encourage to quit smoking through regulations and general censure.

The chairman of Tungs Foundation indicated that globally there are already 69 countries or regions that have a policy for a [smoke-free environment] in place. Through several years of hard work from the Tungs Foundation and other organizations in pushing for legislative changes, finally led to Taiwan to put into effect the law for a [Indoor Smoke-Free Environment] starting next January, thus, bringing Taiwan in line with international practices.

Lifetime volunteer Sun Yue pointed out that it had been 24 years since he became involved in the [Everyone Has a Right to Refuse Exposure to Second-Hand Smoke] movement back in 1984. Finally he was able to witness Taiwans new ban against smoking coming into effect next year. It would be a big step forward for a [Smoke-Free Environment]. He was gratified to see that from the entertainment world, the involvement of the younger generation such as S.H.E who worked tirelessly to promote the harmful effects of smoking. Hopefully each citizen would demonstrate similar spirit and progress towards a [Smoke-Free Taiwan] for the future.
