World No Tobacco Day 2023

By: Babita Singh

Every year on May 31st, the world comes together to observe World No Tobacco Day.  

World No Tobacco Day was established by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1987 to draw attention to the rising global tobacco epidemic.  

The theme for World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) 2023 is “We need food, not tobacco” 

Chronic smoking has been linked to various health conditions, including: Lung cancer Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) Heart disease Stroke Respiratory infection Reduced fertility

The primary objective was to educate individuals about the health risks associated with tobacco consumption and advocate for effective tobacco control policies.

The primary psychoactive and addictive substance found in tobacco is nicotine. 

If you are a smoker, it’s never too late to quit. Quitting smoking not only improves your health but also sets a positive example for those around you. 

As we commemorate World Anti-Tobacco Day, let us reaffirm our commitment to promoting a smoke-free future.  

By advocating for a smoke-free future, we can protect not only our health but also the planet we inhabit.
