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.

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.

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.
