PHILIP MORRIS TOUTS ANTI-SMOKING GROUP'S PUBLIC OPINION RESULTS

 PHILIP MORRIS TOUTS ANTI-SMOKING GROUP'S PUBLIC OPINION RESULTS
 NEW YORK, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Philip Morris has long believed that the answer to the public smoking issue is accommodation. Accommodation means both smokers and non-smokers can live, eat and work together by creating areas for smoking and non-smoking. Accommodation also means improving overall indoor air ventilation.
 Today's Gallup survey, funded and released by the Coalition on Smoking OR Health (American Heart Association, American Lung Association and American Cancer Society) demonstrated that the vast majority of the American public agrees with our position:
 Favor No Restrictions Favor
 or Smoking Sections Smoking Bans
 Restaurants 66 percent 33 percent
 Workplaces 69 percent 30 percent
 Hotels/Motels 81 percent 17 percent
 This consensus on accommodation exists despite the almost universal awareness (90 percent plus) of what the surgeon general and the EPA have said about exposure of non-smokers to tobacco smoke.
