                    “Most people accept that cigarette smoking is bad for your health. The worst thing you can do is stick burning stuff in your mouth. But the next worst thing you can do is have a lot of burning stuff in your kitchen—and a simple village fire is equivalent to about 400 cigarettes an hour of smoke. Finding solutions is something urgent.” Kirk R. Smith PhD, MPH Professor, Global Environmental Health Director, Master’s Program, Global Health and Environment
