To address this pressing issue, several strategies can be employed:

 

Comprehensive Tobacco Control Policies: Governments must enact and enforce strict tobacco control policies, including bans on tobacco advertising, promotion, and sponsorship, as well as implementing smoke-free laws in public spaces.

 

Public Awareness Campaigns: Educating the public about the dangers of tobacco use through multimedia campaigns can help change social norms and discourage tobacco consumption.

 

Tobacco Taxation: Increasing taxes on tobacco products can make them less affordable and deter individuals, particularly youth, from initiating tobacco use.

 

Access to Cessation Services: Providing access to affordable cessation services, including counseling and nicotine replacement therapy, can support individuals in quitting tobacco use.

 

Tobacco-Free Environments: Creating tobacco-free environments in schools, workplaces, and healthcare facilities can further reduce tobacco exposure and encourage cessation efforts.

 

By implementing these measures, we can progress towards a tobacco-free future, promoting better health outcomes for individuals and communities worldwide. Let’s join forces in the fight against tobacco and pave the way for a healthier tomorrow.

Tobacco-Free, Stay Healthy

 

Annually on May 31, World Tobacco Day promotes tobacco reduction policies and raises awareness of its harms. The health dangers of tobacco are highlighted on this day to encourage informed lifestyle choices. 

 

As the biggest cause of preventable death worldwide, tobacco smoking is dangerous. Smoking kills 8 million people yearly, mostly from cancer, heart disease, and respiratory illnesses. Smoking harms smokers and others. 

 

Quitting tobacco reduces the risk of significant health disorders and improves quality of life. Quitting tobacco improves your and others’ health. 

 

Choosing health over tobacco requires purposeful well-being decisions. By choosing health, you commit to wellness. Healthy eating, exercise, sleep, and stress management are important. A healthy, happy future depends on prioritising health. Invest your time and money on things that keep you happy, healthy, and alive. 

 

Help people quit smoking, support smoke-free environments, and tobacco control policies on World Tobacco Day and beyond. You can reduce tobacco mortality by promoting healthy lifestyles and tobacco awareness. 

 

What we need to burn on a daily basis are calories, not tobacco. Let’s fight tobacco and promote health on World Tobacco Day. Understanding tobacco risks and benefits can help everyone quit smoking. We can improve the world by prioritising health.

He has shared his respective views on the World No Tobacco Day. Below is the article.

 

Health is true wealth, and a beautiful mind resides in a healthy body! As we observe World No Tobacco Day, it’s crucial to reflect on the deadly impact of tobacco use on our health and well-being. Smoking is a silent killer, gradually taking away our life and health. The financial burden of smoking is not limited to the cost of cigarettes but extends to the medical expenses incurred due to smoking-related illnesses, which sometimes we realize only when it is too late.

 

Our success and happiness in life do not hinge on the wealth we accumulate but on the physical and mental well-being we achieve. What use is accumulated wealth if health does not support us? I am grateful to the Almighty for keeping me away from smoking throughout my life. 

 

Although I kept myself away from smoking, I used to live a sedentary life for many years. Since 2019, at the age of 42, I started running, and to date, I have run 20 half marathons to improve my health, particularly my heart health. Running has helped me maintain my physical and mental health, giving me the kick I need without taking a puff. My next goal is to run a full marathon by next year.

 

While we cannot control every aspect of our health, we can definitely take responsibility for doing the right things to keep it in shape. Avoiding tobacco and dedicating regular time to our health ensures a healthy future. Let us all stand together for a tobacco-free world and prioritize our health for a happier, more prosperous life.

 

Dr. OMKAR PRASAD BAIDYA

 

Tobacco use in various forms like oral and smoking is very common among young adults and old age groups in both developing and developed nations including India. Tobacco use in any form can increase the risk of 25% of cancer deaths globally. 

 

Medical research has shown that active tobacco smoking can increase the risk of various critical illnesses like Lung Cancer, COPD, Heart Disease, Asthma, Diabetes, and Blindness, and also increase the risk of many cancers like Colon, Cervix, Liver, Stomach, and Pancreatic Cancer. Oral tobacco use can also increase the risk of oral cancers. 

 

Tobacco smoking can not only affect reproductive health in women but also can lead to premature low birth-weight babies. Besides, passive or secondary smokers who stay near active smokers like children and other family members of the smokers, can also suffer from various types of acute and chronic illnesses like respiratory disorders and lung cancer.

 

That’s why, the WHO created the “World No Tobacco Day” to draw global attention to the tobacco epidemic as prevention and stopping of tobacco use in any form to lower the global burden of many diseases. Thus, it is advisable to stop tobacco use in any form.

 

The writer of this article is Dr. Omkar Prasad Baidya, a Physician, author, and philosopher, who is currently working as an Associate Professor at a Medical Institute, in Kolkata, India. He is a trained physician and completed his MBBS, MD, PhD.
