EFFECTS OF TOBACCO ON HEALTH:
According to WHO statistics for 2010 in India, NON COMMUNICABLE DISEASES are estimated to account for 53% of all deaths. Of these deaths, cardiovascular diseases, cancers and diabetes are the most common causes of deaths in India.
This huge burden of Non Communicable diseases can be attributed to increasing use of tobacco. Tobacco is a major risk factor for a number of diseases affecting all age groups.
WHO data shows that tobacco uses kill nearly six million people in a year. Around five million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while more than 600,000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.
One person dies every six seconds due to tobacco. Up to half of current users will eventually die of a tobacco-related disease.
SMOKING AND CANCER:
Smoking can cause cancer almost anywhere in your body:
Blood (acute myeloid leukemia)
Colon and rectum (colorectal)
Kidney and ureter
Oropharynx (includes parts of the throat, tongue, soft palate, and the tonsils)
