World Health Organization warned that tobacco use and exposure to second-hand smoke were "major causes" of cardiovascular disease, contributing to three million deaths annually.

"This is the result of prevention measures that prove their worth, and good news that strengthens my commitment to the. health of all", tweeted the Minister of Health, Agnès Buzyn. People and communities can also contribute to creating a tobacco-free Sierra Leone and commit to never take up or stop using tobacco products. This is an established medical fact that tobacco use is major cause of heart attacks or strokes in the country.

Due to population growth, the number of smokers in the world has remained relatively stable at around 1.1 billion, Bettcher told reporters. The prevalence of smokers in the region has declined from 28.0% in 2000 to 17.4% in 2015.

The general insurer found that 49 per cent of the older grup smoked due to work pressure, compared to 36 per cent of respondents in the younger group, while an nearly qual proportion of respondents in both groups stated that they smoked to relieve daily stress quickly.

Smokeless tobacco: around 6.5 per cent of the global population aged 15 and over use smokeless tobacco (8.4 per cent males and 4.6 per cent females). The concept of tobacco harm reduction remains a top agenda of the industry and has been vigorously explored.

Contrary to popular belief, lung cancer is not the only casualty of breathing in secondhand smoke. Currently, one in four countries have insufficient data to monitor their tobacco epidemic. Over a million deaths are caused by second hand smoking.

About 80 percent of the world's smokers live in low- and middle-income countries and 226 million of them are considered poor.

According to the Times , Jorginho has already agreed personal terms on a five-year contract worth about £75,000 a week. He told Italian outlet Tutto Mercato: "I know Napoli have received an offer from Manchester City ".


Almost 80% of the more than 1 billion smokers worldwide live in low-and middle-income countries, where the burden of tobacco-related illness and death is heaviest.

Quitting the habit is made more hard by the physical addiction to nicotine - the chemical stimulant in tobacco. According to doctors, passive smokers have a 25-30% added risk of developing heart diseases.

"With the Quitline, Filipino smokers now have an easier, accessible way to put into action their intention to quit smoking", said Duque. The group, comprising the Environmental Rights Action and Friends of the Earth (ERA/FoEN), Cedars Foundation, Gatefield, Smoke-free Club UniAbuja and other youth groups, called on government to enforce the ban on smoking in public places.

She further stated that even exposure to second-hand smoke can trigger a heart attack or stroke in non-smokers.

In Maharashtra, as per GATS-2, 35.5 per cent of men, 17 per cent of women and 26.6 per cent of all adults now either smoke and or use smokeless tobacco. Secondhand smoke cannot only cause an upsurge in cardiovascular risk in nonsmokers, but also increases the risk manifold as exposure increases. Given the large burden of such diseases in India, the impact is huge.

The WHO forecasts declines in global volume and sales value by the start of the next decade, but while Europe and America are kicking the habit, in the near East and Africa tobacco consumption is rising.
