It is well known that there is a definite link between smoking and bronchial troubles, heart diseases and lung cancer.
众所周知,吸烟和咽喉疾病,心脏病和肺癌有着直接的联系。
But, ignoring the danger, the governments of most countries have not stood for complete prohibition of cigarette smoking. Although a few governments have taken limited measures, the population continues to puff its way to a cancerous death.
忽视了这些危险,大多数国家的政府并没有完善的禁烟政策。虽然一些政府已经制定出了一些有限的制度,但是吸烟者的数量继续上,向癌症死亡迈进。

You do not have to look very far to find out why the official reactions to medical findings have not been enthusiastic. The answer is simply money. As a wonderful commodity to tax, tobacco means billions of dollars to governments. Therefore, while pointing out that smoking may be harmful, the authorities do not shout too loudly about it.
你没有必要费劲找出为什么官方对于药物研究的行动没有那么热衷。 答案就是钱. 如同一个好商品要上税,烟草就意味着给政府上百万的钱。因此, 虽然指出抽烟是有害的,主管当局并不会大力宣扬。
Surely, this is the most short-sighted policy. While the tax is collected in vast sum, much larger amounts are spent on cancer research and on effort to cure patient not to mention countless valuable lives lost as victims of smoking. In the long run, it is high time that world governments conducted serious campaigns against smoking.
