Anti-Cancer Group Sues over ‘Big Brother’


The Association for the War on Cancer has filed a lawsuit with the Supreme Court against cigarette smoking on the Big Brother reality TV show. The group is asking that the Israeli version of Big Brother, “Ha’ach Hagadol,” be forbidden to air scenes which include smoking.

Its attorneys argue in part that the smoking that is depicted is forbidden under laws prohibiting smoking in public places.
