In Cambodia, One Doctor's War On Smoking

NPR Science Correspondent Joe Palca recently visited Cambodia where it's estimated that 70 percent of the men smoke cigarettes, including Buddhist monks. Palca meets with a physician, whose work with Buddhist monks has led to smoking cessation for a large part of that population, and it's affecting local Cambodians as well.
