A man smokes next to a “No Smoking” sign in downtown Shanghai

A man smokes next to a “No Smoking” sign in downtown Shanghai April 27, 2011. China will ban smoking at all indoor public venues from May 1, in an effort to shield the world’s most populous nation, and its largest cigarette producer, from the harmful effects of the habit, the health ministry said. China, which has more than 300 million smokers, will require businesses to display prominent no-smoking signs, forbid vending machines from selling cigarettes and ensure that designated outdoor smoking zones not affect pedestrian traffic. Although nearly 1.2 million Chinese people die from smoking-related diseases each year, the habit is deeply entrenched in public life. Picture taken April 27, 2011.
