VLADIVOSTOK. February 18. VOSTOK MEDIA – Smoking can take the lives of one billion people in XXIth century, World Health Organizations forecasts.
The leadership in smoking belongs to China who is followed by India. Russia takes the forth position between Indonesia and the USA, the Novyie Izvestiya newspaper reports.
According to the WHO estimates every year smoking leads to death of almost 5.5 million people. Cigarette consumption kills the higher number of people than any other epidemic does.
Some independent experts say, the amount of smoking men in Russia reaches 65%. Russia has the lowest cigarette prices and poorest control over its sale. There is practically no anti-cigarette advertisement. But its worth saying that major tobacco trademarks in Russia such as Philip Morris and British-American Tobacco are engaged in many social problems aimed at elimination of the consequences of smoking.
