World Health Organization Warns Tobacco Users of Epidemic & Harm

Post  Admin on Mon Dec 19, 2011 2:15 pm

The prevalence of tobacco and tobacco-related substances is increasing at exponential rates; with the majority of tobacco users in today's world being women.

The WHO Report on the Global Tobacco Epidemic 2011 Report, examines the global tobacco epidemic and identifies the countries that have taken effective tobacco control measures that save lives. The focus of this report is on warning people about the harms of tobacco use. People have an inherent right to receive this information, and countries have an obligation to provide it. The two main types of warnings are examined: health warning labels on tobacco packages and national anti-tobacco mass media campaigns. Large and graphic warning labels and hard-hitting mass media campaigns have proven effective in reducing tobacco use and encouraging people to quit. This report presents for the first time detailed national-level data collected on a global basis for anti-tobacco mass media campaigns.
