  first read the question.

  33. the following passage emphasizes the role of ___ in health conservation.
  a. advertising b. research c. governments d. taxation

  now go through text g quickly to answer question 33.

  most of the ill health we suffer could be prevented if people made more effo rt to change their life styles. instead many people continue to smoke, to drink excessively and to eat unbalanced diets. how can governments help people conserv e their health and avoid premature death?

  well, many of the measures which need to be taken are primarily a matter of new legislation and need not be expensive. one of the first preventive health m easures should be an increase in taxes on tobacco to the point at which consumpt ion falls off. the aim should be to raise the same amount of revenue from a decr easing number of people. in the short term such a policy could even raise extra money which should then be spent on subsidizing sport so that advertising tobacc o through sports sponsorship could be banned.

  legislation is badly needed to ban all advertising of tobacco products as i t persuades people to smoke more and so is in a large part responsible for the i ll health and thousands of premature deaths caused by cancer of the lung. other measures should be enforced, such as a much tougher health warning on cigarette packets, and tobacco companies should be made to contribute to research into a c ure for lung cancer.
