Why we shouldn’t smoke?

Smoking is one of the most widespread health-damaging activities, with more than 1 billion people in the world living with the habit. Unfortunately, our country also has a very high rate of smokers, and every year, we lose the population of a small town due to smoking. The Washington Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation estimates that because of smoking, 882,000 people died in Hungary between 1990 and 2017.

The World Health Organization estimates that tobacco use is a $1,000 billion burden on the world’s economies, compared to just $269 billion in tobacco-related taxes. It is a scientifically proven fact that tobacco smoke contains 4,000 chemicals, 250 of which are harmful and 50 of which are linked to cancer and cardiovascular and respiratory diseases.

Smoking is not only a serious health problem but also causes significant social and economic harm. In particular, there is now a trend for tobacco manufacturers to target young people with new products.

We are committed to the fight against smoking. We aim to get our message across to as many people as possible, so we are involved in various research, anti-smoking campaigns, and outreach activities to help us live in a smoke-free, healthier society.
