Release date: 2009-08-27

According to a report compiled by the American Cancer Society, about 6 million people die from cancer and heart disease caused by smoking every year. It is expected that this number will rise further.
According to the report, smoking is one of the main causes of cancer, heart disease, respiratory diseases and other diseases. The average life expectancy of smokers is 15 years shorter than that of non-smokers. The report also said that 200,000 people die each year from passive smoking.
Although smoking rates in developed countries such as the United States and Japan have shown a downward trend, the number of smokers in developing countries such as China has increased year by year. It is estimated that the number of deaths due to smoking in 2010 will reach 6 million, accounting for one-tenth of the total number of deaths in the year. The medical expenses and the economic losses caused by the death of young laborers due to smoking will reach about 500 billion US dollars. The Institute warned that if no countermeasures are taken, the number will rise to 7 million by 2020 and to 8 million by 2030.
According to the report, appropriate policy measures have been proven to effectively prevent the harm of cigarettes. The Institute hopes that countries will adopt measures to increase tobacco tax rates and ban smoking in public places. ——Midi Medical Network
