World No Tobacco Day in
Days to go:
World No Tobacco Day seeks to raise awareness about the health risks of tobacco use. It advocates for more effective policies that can help reduce worldwide tobacco use. Tobacco is a brown product prepared by curing the leaves of a tobacco plant. It is believed to have originated thousands of years ago somewhere in the Americas. It was later discovered by Christopher Columbus and subsequently introduced to the rest of the world. Tobacco contains alkaline nicotine, a stimulant that makes tobacco very addictive. Tobacco use is known to cause a myriad of cancers.
In 1987, the World Health Organization established World No Tobacco Day in an effort to draw attention to the risks of tobacco use and move towards safer and better public health for all. Since then, World No Tobacco Day has evolved into an important annual event that generates awareness for other tobacco-related issues such as illegal trade, secondhand smoke, and tobacco control.
