FRANK WÖCKEL (born in 1964)

is the founder, director, author and press spokesman of the CAMPAIGN FOR NONSMOKERS' RIGHTS. Since his youth he has been interested in natural sciences, medicine, healthy and natural living, diet, different physical workouts, yoga, philosophy and literature. He has studied human and social ecology, is a trained environmental consultant as well as the managing director of a publishing house and a free-lance writer.

For more than a decade his special focus of attention has been the protection of people against forced passive smoking, as there is - particularly in Germany - as much a lack of factual information as there is an urgent need for action. For more information please visit: www.passivesmoking.org.
