Smoking

The BBC was reporting today on the rise of the shisha bar in Glasgow, with a health charity warning that one hour of inhaling flavoured tobacco through a shisha was equivalent to smoking 100 cigarettes. Being No Smoking Day it’s worth looking on a more general level at this map in which the size of the territory is proportional to the number of men who smoke there.

It’s interesting to compare that with the equivalent map for female smokers.
