World No Tobacco Day 2022, According to the United Nations, tobacco kills more than 8 million people every year

Tobacco has a negative influence on the health of millions of individuals throughout the world as well as the environment.

World No Tobacco Day is an annual event organised by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) on May 31st of each year (WHO). It raises awareness of the harmful effects of tobacco and its business on human health and the environment, as well as the efforts individuals may take to protect themselves and the environment from tobacco. We'll look at the event's topic, history, and significance in the sections below.

According to the UNEP website, this year's World No Tobacco Day topic is "Tobacco: Threat to our Environment." Tobacco has a negative influence on the health of millions of individuals throughout the world as well as the environment.

Smoke from cigarettes and cigars does not just discolour people's teeth; chewing tobacco does as well. Nicotine, which is extremely addictive, has been linked to cancer, heart disease, lung disease, and liver illness. Tobacco cultivation has a negative impact on the environment due to the usage of pesticides and deforestation.

No Tobacco Day History

According to the official WHO website, the World No-Tobacco Day was established in 1987 by WHO member nations. In the same year, the World Health Assembly passed a resolution calling for the establishment of a World No-Smoking Day. The following year, the same parliament passed another resolution designating May 31 as World No Tobacco Day. Since then, the yearly and global event has continued.

Each year, the campaign focuses on a different aspect of tobacco use and commerce, with the ultimate goal of reducing people's reliance on the substance. This year's theme is tobacco's poisonous effects on our world and its surroundings.

The program emphasises the dangers of tobacco use for both active and passive smokers. It also emphasises how the use of chemicals in tobacco farming is harming our land and water. Cigarette filters contain microplastics, which are frequently discarded incorrectly, resulting in a buildup of hazardous, man-made, and non-biodegradable material in the environment. As a result of these concerns, the event is extremely significant.
