Tobacco Menace and What can Be Done About It

The various forms are pan masala(all over India), Manipuri tobacco (UP), mawa (Gujarat), Tobacco lime preparation (bihar, Maharashtra), Pure tobcco(southern India).

Prof. PP Bapsy, Director of the Kidwai Centre, Bangalore, who has done extensive study of tobacco-related problems points to problems in tobacco control such as:

Unemployment, want of better alternatives to farmers in drought prone areas, addiction and a singular lack of motivation among those charged with the task of combating the evil.

Unless each one of these problems is addressed with earnestness, thousands will keep falling victims to a range of tobacco related diseases, she warns, bleeding the economy white.

She also suggests suitable legislation to curb sale and promotion of all tobacco products and also effectively banning smoking in public places.

An equality effective tool could be taxation. Tax increases raise prices and it is estimated that a 10% price increase reduces consumption by 4% in developed countries and 8% in developing countries.

Poor and youth are more price-sensitive and high prices deter youth from starting to smoke.

But at the end of the day what is required is political will to rid humanity of this terrible scourge.
