What they found was encouraging for health officials who are trying to get people to quit smoking.

The study's lead author is John Ayers who spoke to VOA via Skype.

"If you look at people being searching for how to quit smoking which would be the logical next step - awareness and then interest in cessation - we see on average about a 40% increase across all those countries in all years from 2005 onward."

The researchers say these spikes in interest on how to quit smoking could have potentially large health implications.

"What our study shows is that World No Tobacco Day's having a significant impact on raising interest in and awareness of cessation in these developing countries."

The researchers say this information will help the health ministries in countries around the world because if they know that their citizens are interested in information on how to stop smoking, the ministries can provide better online information on World No Tobacco Day to help people kick the smoking habit.

 

对于想方设法让人们戒烟的卫生官员来说,他们的发现是令人鼓舞的。

研究组长约翰?艾尔斯通过Skype对VOA说:“如果人们意识到并有兴趣戒烟,合乎逻辑的下一步做法就是去搜索如何戒烟。而自2005年以来各个国家想要戒烟的人平均增长了40%。”

研究人员称,想要戒烟的人突然增多,这在健康方面具有巨大的潜在意义。

“我们的研究表明,世界无烟日对发展中国家提升戒烟兴趣和提高戒烟意识有着重大的影响。”

研究人员称这一信息将帮助世界各国的卫生部:如果知道自己的人民对如何戒烟感兴趣,他们就可以在世界无烟日提供更好的网上信息来帮助人们戒烟。

【语法分析】

"If you look at people being searching for how to quit smoking which would be the logical next step - awareness and then interest in cessation - we see on average about a 40% increase across all those countries in all years from 2005 onward."

这是一个含条件状语从句主从复合句,if 引导条件状语从句,

being searching for how to quit smoking: look at people doing sth.

which would be the logical next step, which引导定语从句修饰 searching for how to quit smoking

- awareness and then in cessation -, 进一步解释是什么的next step,破折号在这里的用法是分隔附加说明的词语 - 出自陆谷孙主编的《英汉大辞典》
