🚭The World Health Organization (WHO) declared May 31 as World No Tobacco Day in 1987

Tobacco use is the single largest preventable cause of death and is currently responsible for the death of one in ten adults worldwide, according to WHO. In addition, WHO reports more than 25 diseases that are worsened by smoking (cardiovascular, pulmonary and cancer).

📊According to WHO, tobacco kills almost half of the people who use it. Every year, more than 8 million people worldwide die from the “tobacco epidemic” (more than 1.3 million of whom, who are not smokers, die due to exposure to second-hand tobacco smoke).

❗️The good news is that you can gain significant health benefits by quitting smoking at any age. Those who quit smoking at the age of 30-35 years have a life expectancy equal to that of people who have never smoked.
