No Tobacco Day

According to a 2014 report by the Canadian Cancer Society, India is ranked 136th among 198 countries listed according to the size of their health warnings. The country has slid from a ranking of 123 in 2012, with several countries implementing stronger warnings. Cigarette smoke contains over 4,800 chemicals, 69 of which are known to cause cancer. Apart from cancers, smoking is also a major risk factor in chronic bronchitis, heart disease and stroke; and other conditions and disorders such as slowed healing of wounds, infertility, and peptic ulcer disease.
