World No Tobacco Day 2013

Help us Ban Tobacco Advertising, Promotion and Sponsorship
Today, 31st May, is World No Tobacco Day, an officially recognised day by the World Health Organization (WHO). Tobacco is one of the world’s biggest public health risks, and the leading preventable cause of cancer. To put this in perspective it is important to realise that there are over one billion smokers in the world, and six million deaths are directly related to tobacco every year, as well as 1.3 million new cases of lung cancer. Tobacco is responsible for one death every six seconds.
