Philippine Medical Association: Smoking is "Prohibited"

Did you know that the Philippine Medical Association issued a resolution urging its members to set an example by not smoking?

No Smoking Sign - Plastic - LargeAccording to the Philippine Daily Inquirer, "In a resolution Friday, the PMA “prohibited” smoking among its members and enjoined all other medical practitioners not to smoke." It even encouraged the public to report doctors who were smoking.

Members violating the resolution, according to the said report, would be subject to penalties provided for in the association’s rules.

Here is the link to the said report.

I am sure some doctors will not be happy about this resolution.

So what is your opinion on this PMA resolution?
