WHO: Tobacco Killed 5 Million People Each Year

Tobacco Obviously not our friend. World Health Organization (WHO) said in a statement on Wednesday (09/12/2009), stated, every year 5 million people die from cigarettes. This number will continue to grow if the state leaders do not have the will to protect his people from the dangers of cigarettes.

In a recent report on tobacco use and control, UN says nearly 95 percent of the global population is not protected by the Law Banning Cigarette. WHO also says, more than 600,000 smokers die each year passive.

The report mentions the various strategies that can be taken by policy makers in each country to suppress the number of smokers, for example, regulates the production, promotion, and marketing of cigarettes and tobacco products tax increase. The steps included in the package of six WHO strategy issued last year, but less than 10 percent of the world population is protected from the dangers of cigarettes.

"People need more action, not only to be told that cigarettes are dangerous to health. They need a real implentasi of the WHO Framework Convention undertaken by their respective governments," said Douglas Bettcher, Director of WHO's Tobacco-Free Initiative.

Currently tobacco is the leading cause of preventable death in the world. WHO estimates that if there are still many countries that do not take drastic action, 8 billion people will die from diseases related to tobacco in 2030, mainly residents of developing countries.
