Smokers risk all

Smoking kills more than 5 million people per year worldwide. So, every 6 seconds a person dies from tobacco products, mainly cigarettes.

This product, used in all countries, is the only product that prematurely kills one in two of its consumers. [1] Still it remains the leading cause of preventable death.

Most effects from tobacco on health appear only after several years or even decades after people started to use it.  So, if consumption increases worldwide, tobacco related death has not yet reached its peak.

According to the report of the World Health Organization [2], if no action is taken urgently to curb the tobacco epidemic, the annual number of deaths could reach 8 million by 2030, nearly twice the current population of Ireland.
