European health officials are calling for sweeping antismoking measures aimed at curbing the early deaths of 1.2 million Europeans and 4.6 million people worldwide each year.

The Warsaw Declaration for a Tobacco-Free Europe, adopted last month by health ministers and other top officials from 51 European countries, supports comprehensive measures designed to discourage smoking, including higher taxes on cigarettes and bans on tobacco advertising, sponsorship, and promotion. The declaration also urges countries to restrict smoking in the workplace and public spaces and to improve access to smoking cessation therapy, and promises more support for tobacco-control efforts in the emerging democracies in eastern Europe.
