"World No Tobacco Day is a chance for governments and the public to take firm action".

For World No Tobacco Day 2018, WHO joined with the World Heart Federation to highlight the link between tobacco and cardiovascular diseases (CVD) - the world's leading causes of death, responsible for 44% of all NCD deaths, or 17.9 million deaths annually.

Public health England in the United Kingdom, the food and drug administration in the United States and many other regulators and health authorities across the world have appreciated that anti-smoke products such as electronic cigarettes and heated tobacco devices can offer a less harmful alternative to the tobacco cigarettes. The report shows the pace of action in reducing tobacco demand and related death and disease is too slow and not keeping up with global and national commitments to control tobacco use.

Duan Jiali, director of the smoking control office of the Beijing Center for Disease Prevention and Control, said that Beijing and Hebei Province will work together on the promotion and education of tobacco control. This increases the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

"Tobacco breaks hearts. Its use and exposure to second hand smoke contribute 12 percent of all heart disease deaths, adding that there is no safe level for people, particularly children, women and workers who have to be in the same room as smokers". India also has 200 million of the world's 367 million smokeless tobacco users.

For this year, the slogan chosen was "Tobacco and heart disease" and focuses on the negative impact of this practice on people's cardiovascular health.

Chennai: "Smoking Kills" is the message that is known to all smokers and non-smokers.

As we celebrate the World No Tobacco Day on May 31, and cigarettes and other tobacco products keep getting produced and sold, experts say 2,739 people lose their lives everyday in India due to tobacco, as the quit rate is only about three per cent.

The new packaging rules for tobacco products prohibit promotional information, branding and logos, and were firmly opposed by Big Tobacco. However, the 2017 statistics show that the number of smokers has not dropped, moreover, the cigarette use has increased among both men and women.

Active or passive smoking kills more than seven million people every year, according to the World Health Organization, with tobacco consumption blamed for the death of on average one person every six seconds.

According to the Public Health France, this decline is the most significant one seen in the past decade. Other doctors pointed out that although awareness is being spread about the ill-effects of smoking, this is not the case with chewing tobacco or smokeless tobacco which is being consumed on a massive scale among the rural pockets of Hyderabad.

Tobacco use has decreased in places such as Australia, Brazil and Britain, where anti-smoking measures include higher taxes, bans and health warnings.
