Tobacco use is the leading preventable cause of death. This year, more than 5 million people will die from a tobacco-related heart attack, stroke, cancer, lung ailment or other disease. That does not include the more than 600,000 people – more than a quarter of them children – who will die from exposure to second-hand smoke. The annual death toll from the global epidemic of tobacco use could rise to 8 million by 2030. Having killed 100 million people during the 20th century, tobacco use could kill 1 billion during the 21st century. So the hospital observes "World No Tobacco day" on 31st May 2011 by placing the poster in various places especially patients and attendees visiting areas for giving awareness on dangerous effects using tabacco in various forms. Lets join hands to give awareness!
