Jiading opens "world no tobacco day" campaign

( ) 2014-06-03

Jiading held its 27th "world no tobacco day" campaign on May 29, aiming to advocate people not to smoke in public places. The organizers distributed more than 2000 flyers, and over 600 promotional giveaways to the public.

May 31 is the actual date for the 27th “world no tobacco day”, and this year’s theme is “raising the taxes on tobacco to protect the younger generation”.

Considering that tobacco has become a major health problem worldwide, and 4.9 million deaths are caused by smoking-related diseases every year, according to the Jiading news report, without such campaigns as this, the amount would climb to 20 million by 2025, and with about 2 million of those deaths in China.
