World No Tobacco Day 2010

The World Health Organization (WHO) marks today, May 31st as World No Tobacco Day. On this day, we are encouraged to abstain from all forms of tobacco consumption for 24 hours. The day also aims to draw global attention to the widespread prevalence of tobacco use and its negative health effects.
Tobacco use is the number one cause of preventable disease and death in Ontario, killing 16,000 Ontarians every year. Tobacco-related diseases cost the Ontario economy at least $1.7 billion for health care annually, result in more than $2.6 billion in productivity losses and account for at least 500,000 hospital days each year.
