World No Tobacco Day | 31st May
World No Tobacco Day is observed annually on May 31st to raise awareness about the harmful effects of tobacco use and promote healthier lifestyle choices. In light of alarming statistics regarding tobacco use, it is crucial to understand the significance of reducing tobacco consumption and choosing healthier alternatives.
The Global Tobacco Epidemic
According to various reports by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2019, the worldwide tobacco industry boasts a staggering 1.3 billion users. Chewing tobacco, a common but preventable habit, remains a leading cause of death from cancer and other diseases. Shockingly, there are more than 300 million tobacco-chewing users globally, with 82% of them being male. Researchers have discovered that nearly 29% of all tobacco-related deaths were due to chewing tobacco alone.
The Indian Scenario
India, with a population of approximately 232 million tobacco users, faces a significant challenge in combating this addiction. Alarmingly, 30% of tobacco users in India engage in the habit of chewing tobacco. Such high numbers of tobacco users emphasize the urgent need for alternative options that can help reduce the consumption of tobacco and minimize the associated health risks.
