"200 million Chinese will die due to smoking this century, unless something is done" - WHO

Matt_ADMIN_Matt_ADMIN_ Administrator

The World Health Organization (WHO) has urged China – the world’s biggest tobacco market – to rapidly raise cigarette prices and ban smoking from public places or face the prospect of millions of deaths and a severe economic burden.

“If nothing is done to reduce these numbers and introduce more progressive policies, the consequences could be devastating not just for the health of people across the country, but also for China’s economy as a whole,” said Bernhard Schwartlander, the WHO Representative in China, in a statement accompanying the publication of a new report, called ‘The Bill China Cannot Afford.’

    Since it's a war situation, I suppose it would actually increase smoking since everyone would become a soldier

  • Aren't WHO people also worried about the growing global population, especially in regions like China?

    You can't curb population growth while ensuring everyone lives as long as possible at the same time.
    People in this world look at things mistakenly, and think that what they do not understand must be the void. This is not the true void. It is bewilderment.
