Birth-year based, compulsory education law

As we recognise that education is the most important for our future generations, we, in Singapore, made this birth year based law for future cohorts born after 1 January 1991. Shouldn’t we have a birth year based law to protect the health (probably even more important, if not the same as education) of our future generation?

“But majority are non smokers. A big part of the majority are underage”

Congratulations Congressman Joet Garcia. Balanga City achieved prevalence of smoking down to 7% now with a combination of comprehensive smoking prevention strategies, proper implementations and promotion of the Tobacco Free Generation Endgame concept from 2016. In other words, you do not need ENDS/E Cigs. The world need leaders like you who champions public health and confronts the blindspots in current tobacco control measures. The industry uses the Minimum Age Law to the public’s disadvantage.

Feedback from one of the TFG Singapore team members DY ” Love this! As a former partipant in the TFG movement from Singapore, I am proud to see my Filipino brothers and sisters promoting this movement with such passion and veracity that can only be found in those who truly believe in the cause they fight for. As the current generation, it is our duty to step up and do our part to fight the tobacco epidemic in any way we can. Social media is one of them; it is an excellent way to spread information quickly and effectively. Since many people have access to smartphones and use social media often, I hope that this video will reach as many people as possible, and inspire them to support the TFG movement

Well said DY!
