31st May of every year has been declared as world No Tobacco Day to the dangers associated with using tobacco, and to press for policies to reduce tobacco use.

Despite a steady reduction in smoking globally, the report said tobacco still kills over 7 million people each year and also raised concern over the high number of youth smokers.

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.

"Casual exposure to second hand smoke, a common air pollutant, can also cause smoking-related diseases including CHD to a non-smoker", he said, adding that it was found that smokers were nearly twice likely to suffer a heart attack as compared to non-smokers. More than 100 million of those live in India.On this month's World No Tobacco Day, most will have no option but to continue smoking cigarettes. The work of the American Lung Association is focused on four strategic imperatives: to defeat lung cancer; to improve the air we breathe; to reduce the burden of lung disease on individuals and their families; and to eliminate tobacco use and tobacco-related diseases. They are shifting from cigarettes to Innovative, smoke-free alternate such as electronic cigarettes or heated tobacco products. This increases the risk of having a heart attack or stroke.

The Olympic Tobacco Free Initiative (TFI) covers all enclosed places with public access, including the sporting venues, bars, restaurants and vehicles, as well as any enclosed place in the Olympic and Paralympic Villages.

At the same time, smoking unleashes poisonous gases like carbon monoxide, which replaces oxygen in the blood, thereby reducing the availability of oxygen for the heart muscle, World Health Organization said. "The problem is MS has fairly low tobacco tax, state tobacco tax", said McMillan. The use of Bidis account for a significant proportion of tobacco use.

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

Asia is home to 60% of the world's 1.1 billion smokers.

According to the World Health Organisation's 2017 data, Vietnam was among 15 countries worldwide with lowest prices set for tobacco.

WHO's survey found that when tobacco usage falls in one country it is usually offset by the consumption of such substances in countries where there are lax regulations and controls on tobacco.

The good news is that from the moment a smoker quits smoking, his body begins to feel the benefits, she said. Of this, 11 per cent of women in 2000 smoked tobacco products, which is down to six per cent in 2015.

"Unfortunately, most tobacco-related deaths occur in low and middle income countries where the population is target of intensive tobacco industry marketing". Prevalence of tobacco use is decreasing more slowly in LMICs than in high-income countries.
