Dubai, April 7 (IANS/WAM) Lead a healthy lifestyle with main focus on healthy food and sports, the Dubai government has told its youth, asking them to say no to smoking.
The Dubai municipality has launched a two-month campaign called “Youth without Smoking,” which will culminate with the World No Tobacco Day on May 31. The target audience of the programme are students of middle school, high school, college and university levels.

The campaign aims to educate the youth about the adverse effects of smoking on the individual and the society, especially because most people start this practice during their early stages of life.

A team of doctors from the Dubai Health Authority will conduct medical examinations in educational institutions and offer free consultation on different types of treatment including awareness therapies, conventional treatment using medicines and new methods using laser and other magnet-based devices.
