World No Tobacco Day

May 29, 2015

Every year, on 31 May, WHO and partners mark World No Tobacco Day (WNTD), highlighting the health risks associated with tobacco use and advocating for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption.

The global smoking epidemic kills almost 6 million people annually, including over 600,000 non-smokers who die due to exposure to second-hand smoke.

Smoking affects almost all of the body’s organs and undermines the smoker’s health.

Also, it has been shown that smoking increases the risk of several types of cancer, cardiovascular disease and lung problems.

Privamed can make you more aware of the health risks linked to tobacco use by helping you change your habits and dependence on nicotine.
