Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration pushed legislation that now forces tobacco manufacturers to list explicit health warnings on cigarette packs. However, not everyone is pleased with the development - especially those who still smoke.
Many Americans choose to smoke cigarettes, and feel that their rights are being taken away by new legislation. For vendors attempting to sell cigarettes, the warning labels pose a problem as well, according to The Sun Herald.
"It's another form of Big Daddy trying to tell people what to do," Frank Williams, an owner of three tobacco stores, told the news source. "They're just trying to tell people how to live their life."
Several communities are instituting bans on smoking in public areas as well. Secondhand smoke can cause negative health effects similar to those seen in cigarette users.
Many people use an air purifier with a HEPA filter to cope around smokers. This can remove the toxins from the cigarettes from the atmosphere.
The IQAir GC MultiGas Air Purifier is growing in popularity among those who want to avoid secondhand smoke as well. Its HyperHEPA filter can eliminate irritating particles in up to 900 square feet of space.
