Today is May 31, World No Tobacco Day, which is a time to show the red signal to all forms of tobacco consumption for 24-hours, as proclaimed by the World Health Organization.
Tobacco is the single greatest cause of preventable death globally. Its use leads most commonly to diseases affecting the heart and lungs, with smoking being a major risk factor for heart attacks, strokes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and cancer.
And, do you know that the death toll of active smokers in America is approx. 400, 000 per year as well as that of passive smokers is approx. 50, 000 a year. Hence, quit smoking is the most essential activities that should be strictly followed not only in America but across the world.
Our idea to say no to tobacco is reading appropriate books against tobacco for a whole day in order to abscond tobacco consumption. And, this day could be any day. So here enlisted some randomly picked books from our online bookstore, that will light up minds against tobacco intake and thus, enable to shun this deadly product.
