DO NOT BELIEVE TO MISS THE DAMAGE TO HEALTH? Because of this habit, more than seven million people die each year
As a result of this harmful habit, more than seven million people die annually in the world, and this bad habit is not only a threat to the health of an individual but also to the environment, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned on the World Cancer Day on May 31. According to WHO data at the beginning of the 21st century, about four million people died of the smoker's annual smear, and this figure has increased to seven million.
In addition to the enormous damage to health, tobacco is causing great damage to the environment, given that the production of cigarettes is destroying the forests and the atmosphere. WHO reports the cost of treating ill and costs due to reduced productivity amounting to about $ 1400 billion, which is about 1.8 percent of world GDP. "Smoking and smoking are a threat to us all," she said in a statement by WHO departing director Margaret Chan.
Her deputy Oleg Čestnov recalled that the annual global global economy is more than a billion dollars, and it is estimated that by about 2030, about eight million people will die annually of smoking annually. There are 1.1 billion smokers in the world today, meaning that every fifth inhabitant of our planet is over 15 years old smoker. Chan points out that the WHO report is part of an effort to broaden the debate on smoking as a negative and harmful habit and at the same time as a major global problem.
"From the beginning to the end, the tobacco production cycle is very damaging to all the inhabitants of our planet," according to a World Health Organization report. Gradually the woods disappear, not only because of tobacco breeding, but also because of the need for firewood for drying tobacco leaves.
