Quit smoking for your heart

Around 315 million people smoke in China consuming more than a third of the world's cigarettes Cigarette smoking causes ten deaths per minute Cigarette smoking causes ten deaths per minute

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

"As such, quitting is the only way to dramatically reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, stroke, and a variety of cancers". Through this Strategy and the new Tobacco and Vaping Products Act, we can help people who use tobacco to stop and we can discourage others from starting.

Similarly, in the message which was issued by WHO regional director, Dr. Matshidiso Moeti, the world body urged countries to institute hard-hitting warnings and graphic pictures about the dangers of smoking on cigarette packaging, and ban tobacco advertisement, promotion and sponsorship. World No Tobacco Day is the ideal opportunity to overcome this deadly addiction for a healthier, happier life.

The health office says around 9,500 people - out of a population of 8.4 million - die in Switzerland every year from tobacco-related illnesses.

Clearly, since the infamous days of Jeffrey Wigands' revelations of the tobacco industries (particularly Brown and Williamson) deceitful advertising and malicious intent to sell tobacco consumables laced with ammonia, the substance or product continues to have drastic effects on the health of people, across the planet. The Region of the Americas is the only exception; the current projections indicate that the target will be reached by 2025.

"I would like to reiterate that tobacco use and breathing secondhand smoke may indeed break your heart".

In a bid to promote a healthy heart, the World Health Organization wanted every one of its 194 Member States to implement a series of increasingly strict tobacco control measures.

"Although often associated with ill-health, disability and death from non-communicable chronic diseases, tobacco smoking is also associated with an increased risk of death from communicable diseases".

Commenting on the decline in Swiss smokers, Daniel Dauwalder, a spokesman for the Federal Office of Public Health, pointed out that Swiss tobacco legislation was "relatively liberal".

Idris noted that coronary heart disease (CHD) had been recorded as a leading killer since 2007 in public hospitals. "This is why it is so important that countries accelerate the implementation of the FCTC".

In 2015, Vietnamese smokers spent 31 trillion VND (1.36 billion USD) on tobacco, while total treatment expenses for smoking-related diseases exceeded 23 trillion VND (1.01 billion USD). These types of products eliminate the smoke and reduce the levels of harmful toxic chemicals while at the same time deliver the nicotine and ritual that millions of smokers look for.

WHO estimates that the prevalence of smoking across the world has dropped from 27 per cent at the turn of the century to 20 per cent in 2016.

Country response: Over half of all WHO Member States have reduced demand for tobacco, and nearly one in four are likely to meet the 30% reduction target by 2025.

Despite the apparent lack of progress in tackling the total number of smokers, the report highlights that only one in five people smoke today, compared to more than one in four, 18 years ago.

Youth: Worldwide, about 7%, or just over 24 million children aged 13-15, smoke cigarettes (17 million boys and 7 million girls).

Other than the Asian countries, millions of smokers across the world are making changes like never before when it comes to cigarette smoking.
