Dr Scott Leischow

Rob Cameron's guest on One on One this week is Dr Scott Leischow, head of the Tobacco Control Research Branch of the U.S. National Cancer Institute. A recent study on tobacco addiction suggested that as many as 70 percent of smokers want to give up smoking. But how can doctors help them kick the habit? Why has the World Health Organisation classified tobacco addiction as a disease? And is there any hope for anti-smoking campaigners, here in the smoker-friendly Czech Republic? For answers to these and more questions, tune into this week's One on One.
