Statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO) show that as many as 6 million people die from smoking every year in the world, i.e. one person dies from smoking-related diseases every six seconds on average; half of smokers die early from smoking; and about 600,000 non-smokers die annually from second-hand smoke exposure.
In China, To protect people's health, it's time to quit smoking!
How can leaders, medical staff and teachers play a leading role in tobacco control? The answers is:
Participants in official activities should not smoke, and should not respect or encourage smoking.
Medical staff are not allowed to smoke during working hours, and advise and help patients to quit smoking.
Teachers should not smoke in front of students.
