Today is one of the day when every time I sit down to write a blog post, something comes up and it’s about World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) which is held every year on 31 May. It is a most important day in the world when we spread the awareness about tobacco disadvantages for our health. The World Health Organization (WHO) and agencies like Fiinovation highlight the health risks associated with tobacco use and its effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption. And as I remember in 2013 the theme was ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship. The member states of the world health organization (WHO) created world no tobacco day. A comprehensive ban of all tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship is required under the WHO Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) for all Parties. Medical research made it clear during the 1900s that tobacco use increased the likelihood of many illnesses including heart attacks, strokes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), emphysema and many forms of cancer. This is true for all ways in which tobacco is used, including:
a) Cigarettes and cigars.
b) Hand rolling tobacco.
c) Biddies (cigarettes containing tobacco with herbs or spices).
d) Pipes and water pipes.
e) Chewing tobacco.
Snuff (a moist version of snuff popular in some countries such as Sweden).
g) Creamy snuff (a paste consisting of tobacco, clove oil, glycerin, spearmint, menthol, and camphor sold in a toothpaste tube popular in India).
h) Gutkha (a version of chewing tobacco mixed with areca nut, catechu, slaked lime and other condiments popular in India and South-East Asia).
i) The code also seeks to clamp down on ads, like cricket gear. Unfortunately, the code has proved ineffective, as the organization that drafted it, the Advertising Standards Council of India (ASCI), is a self regulatory body with no powers to enforce the code by punishing offenders.
And now days we can see many youngster are very used to it which is very bad for their health in future and at last we can say it’s bad for our country future also. So we should encourage this event to take part every year with promotions of anti tobacco and against the promotions of tobacco ads. And in the end I would like to say PLEASE SAY NO TO TOBACCO and live a healthy life ahead.
