World No Tobacco Day

On 31 May every year marks World No Tobacco Day, Were the World Health Organization helps us pinpoint the dangers of smoking, this year’s theme is “Tobacco – a threat to development.” There are millions of smokers across the globe and hopefully days such as these will serve as a reminder of how smoking not only effects you, but those around you too.

The campaign is to educate people of all the other dangers that they are not always aware of, such as how tobacco companies use tactics to keep people smoking, even though they know how harmful tobacco can be to them.

Smoking advertisements may have been banned in South Africa, however tobacco is still being advertised in plenty of other countries across the world. The tobacco companies spend billions on advertising, were they try and make smoking seem like a normal everyday habit, like having a cigarette after a meal is normal mundane thing. They try and portray smokers as cool and glamorous, thus fooling the children who see these adds into thinking that it is truly something that they should do.

They leave out the parts that cigarettes are highly addictive, contain nicotine and tar which destroys your lungs and can eventually lead to death, not to mention all the damage the cigarette buds due to the environment
