Breathing Secondhand Smoke Increases Risk of Heart Diseases by 30%

Breathing Secondhand Smoke Increases Risk of Heart Diseases by 30%”

The Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products was adopted in November 2012 at the fifth session of the Conference of the Parties in Seoul, South Korea, and is open for ratification, acceptance and approval by the parties to the WHO FCTC.

"Tobacco smoke thickens the blood, increases the risk of blood clots, narrow the arteries and restricts oxygen in the blood", said Duque. Additionally, there have been a number of tobacco-free campaigns.

The tobacco-free standards were also implemented at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

In its latest report, the health agency warns that tobacco kills over seven million people a year, and cautions that many people are unaware of the dangers of heart disease and strokes caused by smoking.

Chennai: "Smoking Kills" is the message that is known to all smokers and non-smokers.

According to World Health Organization (WHO) report, tobacco use disproportionately harms some of the world's most vulnerable populations. Tobacco is the second-leading cause of cardiovascular disease after high blood pressure. Aware of these risks, the tobacco industry has, for about 50 years, intensified research on ways to make tobacco products safer for adult consumers, protect the environment while ensuring that human and social capital costs are sustainable and productive.

'"Smokers face an increased risk of certain types of throat and stomach cancers, even years after they quit", he remarked.

"Smoking harms almost every organ in the body, and more than 16 million Americans are living with a disease caused by smoking", said Albert Rizzo, M.D., senior medical advisor to the American Lung Association.

"In summary, tobacco breaks hearts that of the smokers, children, their families, but also of the economy... and we appeal to all to choose health", said Weiler.

Commenting on the decline in Swiss smokers, Daniel Dauwalder, a spokesman for the Federal Office of Public Health, pointed out that Swiss tobacco legislation was "relatively liberal". However, did you know it also increases the risk for several cardiac ailments including a heart attack?

Jan Odhano said that the government is responsible for protecting people's health from tobacco exposure and for this goal it has to strictly enforce the tobacco control laws in Pakistan to restrict access to tobacco.

By sex: For males aged 15 and over globally, 43% smoked tobacco in 2000 compared to 34% in 2016, while 11% of females smoked in 2000, compared to 6% in 2016. More importantly, long-term smokers can use them as a substitute for traditional cigarettes to help in quitting the habit or, at least, switch to a less risky alternative.

"Many persons think that if you practise healthy lifestyles such as high levels of physical activity and healthy diet and smoke tobacco products, you won't be at risk for heart attack and stroke - this is not so".
