SMOKING: INJURIOUS TO HEALTH, SNIPPETS

ACTIONS TAKEN AGAINST TOBACCO PRODUCTION

I was just researching on internet about the actions which have been taken regularly against the production of tobacco and smoking. I found few interesting stats and news which needs to be highlighted to alarm you and encourage you as well. Those are as follows:

There’s a dutch lawyer and a lung cancer patient are planning to sue the tobacco companies that are trying to trap the customers who are tend to get addicted. You can read the full news, HERE

There’s an article published with the title “Earth day 2016” in a website of ASH (Action on Smoking & Health) where it says:

“The harmful impacts of smoking go well beyond each individual smoker. Cigarettes have a negative impact on the environment throughout their entire life cycle – from growing the tobacco to disposing of the butts.” 

If we read the complete article then we will understand the implications of tobacco production.

Some alarming stats which have been provided by ASH are as follows:

  1. Tobacco kills up to half of its users.
  2. Tobacco kills up to 6 million people each year,including 600,000 non-smokers who are dying because of their exposure to second hand smoke.
  3. If no urgent action is taken the death toll for tobacco will be 8 million each year by 2030.

Awareness and alertness are necessary and we all have to be united for this cause. 

Keep reading and keep sending your feedback.

Stay blessed!!!
