World No Tobacco Day

Posted on May 31st, 2014

May 31 is World no Tobacco Day. Tobacco use is one of the leading preventable causes of death.

      Tobacco kills up to half of its users.

Tobacco kills nearly six million people each year, of whom more than 5 million are users and ex users and more than 600 000 are nonsmokers exposed to second-hand smoke.

If you don’t smoke – don’t start!

If you do smoke – QUIT!
