Heartbreaker? Smoking causing millions of heart attacks, strokes

'Measures that reduce the risks to heart health posed by tobacco include making all indoor public and workplaces completely smoke-free and promoting use of tobacco package warnings that demonstrate the health risks of tobacco'.

This year's theme: 'Tobacco and Heart Disease, ' focuses on tobacco use as a key risk factor for developing heart and related diseases, including stroke.

Arsen Torosyan noted the cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide, adding some 12% of heart diseases develop due to smoking or exposure to the second-hand smoke.

Tobacco use has been linked to more than seven million deaths worldwide each year, including some 890,000 from breathing in second-hand smoke.

In the African Region, it said about 146 000 adults aged 30 years and above die every year from tobacco-related diseases.

In 2015, Vietnamese smokers spent 31 trillion VND (1.36 billion USD) on tobacco, while total treatment expenses for smoking-related diseases exceeded 23 trillion VND (1.01 billion USD). People and communities can also contribute to creating a tobacco-free Sierra Leone and commit to never take up or stop using tobacco products.

The Free Market Foundation (FMF) released a statement yesterday which opposes the stricter proposed smoking laws, saying that these laws violates the freedom of choice of adults who smoke.

CASES of coronary heart disease that require special treatment are increasing from year to year, according to the number of registrations at the Gleneagles Jerudong Park Medical Centre (JPMC), which recorded 143 patients in 2016 and 152 the following year. The WHO FCTC is a milestone in the promotion of public health.

Duncan Selbie, chief executive of Public Health England, said the United Kingdom has the second lowest smoking rate in Europe after Sweden, which proves that the Government's tobacco-control policies are effective.

'This World No Tobacco Day, WHO is drawing attention to the fact tobacco doesn't just cause cancer, it quite literally breaks hearts'.

"It increases awareness of the importance of trying to quit smoking, and like Mark Twain said, "quitting smoking is easy to do".

"It is a significant health concern and I wish that people were more aware of the programs that we have in place to support people to quit smoking", exclaims Mosli. Currently, one in four countries have insufficient data to monitor their tobacco epidemic. It also works to ensure that vulnerable populations affected by this transformation, especially small tobacco farmers, are able to transition to sustainable livelihoods. "If you are a smoker and quit smoking, within one year your risk of heart attack falls and in two to three years your risk of stroke falls to the same as a non-smoker", Davidson said.

Over 80% of tobacco smokers live in low- and middle-income countries, (LMICS).

"Cigarette is so cheap in the country, you even see minors buying it".
