World No Tobacco Day 2023

World No Tobacco Day is observed every year on 31st May to highlight the harmful effects of tobacco not only on humans but on the environment at large.  As per World Health Organisation, Tobacco kills over 8 million people every year. It is also responsible for creating some serious damage to our environment through cultivation and waste.

Tobacco consumption is a major risk factor for many chronic diseases, including cancer, lung disease, cardiovascular disease and stroke. It is one of the main causes of death and disease in India and according to WHO, it accounts for nearly 1.35  million deaths every year. 

Like previous years, this year too Consumer VOICE observed World No Tobacco Day with their partner states across India with the objective to strengthen Tobacco Control Laws to save lives. 

Events like walkaton, cyclothon and workshops were organized to raise awareness among the citizens including young adults and children on the harmful effects of tobacco consumption.
