Nearly 67 per cent of the children in Bulgaria are passive smokers

Date: 31.05.2007

Nearly 67 per cent of the children in Bulgaria are passive smokers, research showed.

Both parents are smokers in nearly 50 per cent of the Bulgarian families, Georgi Kotarov from the national centre for observing public health said.

On May 30, Kotarov took part in a roundtable discussion dedicated to anti-smoking measures.

Passive smoking trends vary according to region. Nearly 32 per cent of the children in Veliko Turnovo are exposed to cigarette smoke, while the figure for Varna is 92 per cent.

Only 24.4 per cent of the children live in a smoke-free environment and both of their parents are non-smokers.

Passive smoking affected children seriously, Kotarov said. According to data of the World Health Organisation (WHO), nearly half of the children worldwide are passive smokers.
