Tobacco Menace and What can Be Done About It

Tobacco is perhaps the most common addiction all over the world, and a leading carcinogen producer .

Alarmed by the devastating impact of tobacco in its various forms on human health, the World Health Organization is calling for stringent regulations on smoking.

Tobacco generates about Rs.7,964 crore annually but spends for treatment of tobacco related diseases is about Rs.27,661 crore, according to WHO estimates.

The results of a recent survey are really alarming. The total losses in high-income countries are $451 billion whereas in low-income countries it is $13 billion.

It uses up more minerals and nutrients from soil hence other crops don't grow around and the wood used for curing tobacco causes deforestation.

Effects on the health:

Cancer is the commonest cause of tobacco related deaths after IHD and CVA. The smoke contains all forms of chemical carcinogens of all stages.

Tobacco smoke contains over 4,000 chemical compounds, which includes at least 60 different carcinogenic substances. They in turn cause a variety of chronic pulmonary and cardiovascular diseases besides damage of the central nervous system leading to Alzheimer's disease and the like.
