World No Tobacco Day 2010
' Gender and tobacco with an emphasis on marketing to women '

Approximately 1.5 million women die every year from tobacco use. Understanding and controlling the tobacco epidemic among women is an important part of any tobacco control strategy. World No Tobacco Day 2010 focuses on the harm that tobacco marketing and smoke do to women. At the same time, it seeks to make men more aware of their responsibility to avoid smoking around the women with whom they live and work.

This year's events kick-started on 10th May with an anti-tobacco drive covering the entire country along the Golden Quadrilateral by bikers - Devjeet Saha and Vartika Pande with the aim of educating people about cancer and what they can do to prevent it by changes in faulty lifestyle habits. more >>
