Smoke-free legislation will begin May 19, 2008.
Most public places, including restaurants, shopping malls and transportation will be smoke-free.
Secondhand smoke causes health harms including heart attacks.
VO: The air of Turkey is now smoke-free. The air in offices, taxis, shopping malls, government buildings and many other public spaces is under the protection of legislation. Exposure to cigarette smoke increases the risk of lung cancer and heart disease to smokers and non-smokers. Everyone deserves smoke-free public and work places. Support the act and protect your air.
