In the midst of a pandemic, a polluted planet, increasing diseases like cancer, asthma, heart disease, let's raise global attention on urgent actions needed to keep humans and the planet healthy. Together, we can foster a movement to create societies focused on well-being.
Tobacco kills more than 8 million people every year & is highly addictive. It is a major risk factor for cancer, heart, lung diseases. 600 million trees are chopped down to make 6 trillion cigarettes every year, decreasing the clean air we breathe. No tobacco. #HealthierTomorrow
