WiTH Collective Celebrates 'World No Nagging Day' For Pfizer

Some smokers have turned to e-cigarettes as a substitute

As the world celebrates World No Tobacco Day, South Africa is gearing up to instate new and harsher smoking laws that have left many smokers and rights organisations fuming.

In a bid to promote heart health, the WHO wants every one of its 194 Member States to implement a series of increasingly strict tobacco control measures.

It is a terrible reality that 2739 die every day in India due to tobacco consumption.

Figures estimate that tobacco is the primary cause of 17 per cent of all deaths from heart disease, the world's leading killer.

Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) kill more people than any other cause of death worldwide, and tobacco use and second-hand smoke exposure contribute to approximately 12 per cent of all heart disease deaths.

May: oldest lizard fossil
He explains in a video for the MUSE Science Museum in Trento (Italy) that the fossil they found was "perfect example". It is the oldest of its kind thereby aiding the scientists' research work on this species to a considerable extent.

PMI has already committed $4.5bn in supporting a team of 400 world-class scientists, engineers and technicians who have spent years creating and testing a range of smoke-free products that offer a much better choice for the millions of smokers who don't quit.

Evidence shows that up to half of all tobacco users will die prematurely from tobacco related causes, such as heart diseases, stroke, cancer, chronic lung diseases and diabetes and that on average, tobacco use will cost them, less than 15 years of their life.

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.

Additionally, it calls for a ban on tobacco advertisement, promotion of sponsorship.

"Exposure to passive smoking for children and adolescents is extremely risky, causing serious respiratory problems such as asthma and increasing their risk of coronary heart disease", he said.

Trump defiant on tariffs, touts job numbers
He also appeared to call into question whether the U.S. should enter into another trilateral trade pact with the two countries. Trump shot back hours later in a statement, saying the days of the US being taken advantage of in trade deals "are over".

Tobacco use has been linked to more than seven million deaths worldwide each year, including some 890,000 from breathing in second-hand smoke.

"This historic decline proves to everyone that it is possible to fight against smoking through coherent and integrated actions", said François Bourdillon, the health department's director general, in the report released Monday.

But there are signs that smoking in France is losing its allure. Due to population growth, the number of smokers in the world has remained relatively stable at around 1.1 billion.

Through the Tobacco Reduction Program, Albertans are offered a variety of ways to access these programs and services, such as by telephone, in-person group cessation programs and one-on-one counselling. He says that days like World No Smoking Day can help people quit their addictions.

Tobacco smoke contains more than 7,000 chemicals, including tar and others that can narrow arteries and damage blood vessels, and nicotine, which is associated with increases in heart rate and blood pressure.

Glasgow shortlisted for Channel 4 headquarters
As part of the next stage in the selection process, a team from Channel 4 intends to visit the areas shortlisted in late June. So it's disappointing that Norwich - indeed the whole Eastern region - has been overlooked by Channel 4.

Despite the overall decline, World Health Organization regrets that only one in eight countries is on track to meet a voluntary target of a 30% cut in tobacco use by 2025, based on a 2010 baseline.
