Tobacco is the leading cause of cancer. It’s responsible for 20% of all cancer-related deaths and around 70% of lung cancer deaths globally. When you smoke, your body is exposed to more than 5,000 different toxic components, most of them carcinogenic.
Currently, there are 691,600 current smokers. In 2015, 11.4% of the population aged 15 or over were smokers.
Second-hand smoke is the smoke exhaled by smokers, or smoke released from burning tobacco products. Any exposure to second-hand smoke is harmful to your health.
Quit smoking to protect your family, reclaim your health and save your life.
