World No Tobacco Day

On May 31, 2012, the World Health Organization (WHO) celebrates World No Tobacco Day  highlighting the health risks associated with tobacco use and advocating for effective policies to reduce consumption. This year’s theme for WNTD is “tobacco industry interference.” 

Considering that tobacco kills nearly 6 million people worldwide each year, the need for global action is crucial. This is more than the entire population of the state of Colorado. Tobacco use remains the leading preventable cause of death.

Despite the progress that has been made at the local, national and global levels, there is still a great deal of work to be done.
