WHO says "Ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship"

We closed off with Adeliah Jacobs - From CANSA Cape Metro Care Centre. She was speaking to us about the dangers of smoking and commemorating World No Tobacco Day which is next week Friday. The theme for this year’s campaign is "Ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship". CANSA reported that “over 44 000 South Africans die from tobacco-related diseases annually and many more become ill from using tobacco products such as snus, snuff, water pipes (hubbly bubbly) and inhaling second-hand smoke.” For further information you can contact CANSA on (021) 689 5347 or visit www.cansa.org.za
