Since 1987, every year May 31 is observed as World No Tobacco Day. The day is meant to raise awareness about the health hazards of smoking and tobacco; and also to encourage government to adopt policies to reduce smoking and other tobacco uses.
Smoking damages the airways and small air sacs in your lungs. This damage starts early in smokers, and lung function continues to worsen which leads to various lung diseases and cancers. It can further result in persistent cough, difficulty in breathing and negatively impact the quality of life in people of all ages in all religions of the globe.
World No Tobacco Day is observed in partnership with World Health Organisation. The theme of World No Tobacco Day 2019 is “Tobacco and Lung health“.
This World No Tobacco Day, let’s pledge to control tobacco use and exposure. Quit smoking and make other people aware of the dangerous health hazards of tobacco use.
